I graduated with a BA in Communications last month. It was surreal to wear the cap and gown finally, but great. It was really awesome to have my parents, grandparents, sister and fiance there to celebrate with me. I've worked really hard to graduate and it's really nice to finally achieve that goal!

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney being presented with an honorary doctorate degree.

Sarah and Joe Tateoka waiting for commencement to start. "Joe! Why do you have a brown tassel?! We're in the same major!" Poor kid.

Me after commencement. Commencement was long and I was tired...

Me with Professor Walton after the College Convocation. It was so neat to have just the Comms majors graduate together - although there were quite a lot of us!

After sitting through both of my graduations, Kevin says he is even more convinced that he does not wish to walk at his own graduation. I love how he thinks he has a choice in the matter ;).

It was so neat to have my grandparents there - I couldn't have made it this far without the support of my parents and grandparents.

Our new family portrait! Thanks for the matching shirts, Mom!

Adventures unknown

Well, it's interesting when life takes you down what you think is one path, but then makes you switch to another when you least expect it. I was supposed to go to Chicago this summer for an internship, but all of the opportunities fell through. We're not sure where we are supposed to be in the beginning of our marriage. We may still move to Chicago after we're married, but for now we are just not sure. We will let you know when we know.

In the meantime, our wedding plans are still going strong. Kevin has three responsibilities: getting Sarah's wedding band, getting his suit for the wedding, and getting ties for him and his groomsmen and ushers. Sarah and her mother will be taking care of the humongous list that is everything else. Surprised? :) But seriously, things are falling in place and we know that just as the Lord has had a plan for us and helped us find each other, he will help us find where we are supposed to be.
