Magical Newgrange

The tombs at Newgrange are older than the Pyramids and are located exactly 1/10 of the Earth's circumference from them. They were perfectly constructed so that at sunrise during the winter solstice each year, a beam of light penetrates a small opening and illuminates the entire chamber of the tomb. We left feeling humbled as we realized how little we actually know.

Star Struck

When writing the previous blog entry, I totally forgot to mention one of the best stories from graduation. One of the cool things about the BYU schools' graduations, is that they have general authorities come and speak. This year at our graduation, we had Elder Ballard as the main speaker. Now Ryan's uncle is a member of the 70 so he's met quite a few apostles, while I, on the other hand...have not. So there we were, walking out to the main floor at the beginning of commencement, and all of the faculty were lined up on the sides of the hallways clapping for us. As we walked through the hall, we were saying hi to all the teachers we had taken classes from in the past. At the end of the line, right before entering the auditorium, I saw the President of the university standing at my right, so I looked to my left to see who was standing there. As I walk past this man, I realized that it was Elder Ballard. Being totally shocked, I just stood there staring at him in total awe. More than anything, I was just surprised. I had never even been in the same room as an apostle, and "poof," there was one right next to me. After staring at him and not saying anything, he finally broke the awkwardness and said "Hi there." The moral of the story is that I will always be known as the creepy girl who just stood there totally star struck by an apostle. Let's just say that since it happened, Ryan hasn't let me forget what a total goober I looked like.

Well, that day has finally come and gone... On Friday, Ryan and I officially graduated from college. I'm not gonna lie, it's a little weird. Here we are, sitting at our apartment on a Sunday night, not knowing what to do with ourselves without homework. I'll admit, the thought of starting real life and working 8 hour days without a summer vacation, really doesn't sound too exciting. But altogether, we're excited to be moving back to the warmth and starting something new!

It was a fun weekend as we were able to spend the weekend hanging out with our parents. We definitely want to say thank you to our parents as they made the trip here to Rexburg to support us. We also want to give a special thanks to my dad for making the drive up here the day after tax season ends to help us move!
