BYU Grads '08

April 25 marked the commencement ceremonies for BYU's 2008 graduating class. Among the graduates were Krista's sister Betsy, Larry's brother Ryan, and his wife Kelly. We started the morning out by attending Betsy's commencement ceremony in the Wilkinson Center. Betsy graduated with a BS in chemistry.

After the ceremony, we stopped by the Cougareat to help Lauren (Krista's little sister who is currently studying at BYU) empty out her college meal plan card. Thanks for the chocolate milk Lauren! Here's all five Olsen sisters.

We then had refreshments with all of the chemistry department graduates over at the Benson Building. Betsy will be continuing her education at BYU this fall at where she will begin working on her master's degree in chemistry.

Ryan graduated from the Marriott School of Management with both bachelor's and master's degrees in accounting. Kelly graduated cum laude with a BA in special education.

Here Ryan and Kelly pose with a little twig shaped like an F (for Furr) that Larry spotted on the ground. They will soon be leaving for Raleigh, North Carolina where Ryan will be working for Deloitte and Kelly will be substitute teaching.

Ryan and Kelly hopped on the BYU cougar as they ride out of Provo and into post-collegiate life.

Later that day we sat Ava down to break the news to her that Uncle Ryan and Aunt Kelly would soon be moving away.

She didn't take it very well.

Don't worry Ava, your Uncle Jamie will be out here in the fall.

Larry, you are so talented. Really! What a great entry for graduation. I loved the five sisters and the picture of Ryan and Kelly with the twig. Poor little Ava. She will miss her aunt and uncle, but it is always fun to have another place to go to visit. (She looks adorable even when crying!)--Granny O
