Graduation Weekend

Seriously, one of the absolute BEST weekends of my life! My parents went above and beyond to help me celebrate one of the greatest accomplishments thus far!

Saturday, I officially graduate from GVSU with a Bachelors of Science in Social Studies and a Bachelors of Science in Education :)

Family came in from out of town a few of my best friends spent all weekend at my house to help me celebrate and saturday night I went out with a bunch of my sorority sisters.

 On the way to the ceremony :) Grandma, Mom, and cousin A

I am so thankful to have such an amazing support system. My family and friends have encouraged me along the way. Though there were multiple times where I almost dropped out, I didn't want to finish, and switched my major 3 times, they still encouraged me to follow my dreams and finish :) 

I also have to give a huge shout out to the big guy upstairs. If I hadn't been saved at 21 I never would have gone into education let alone finished college. 

This weekend was one for the books :) Here are some pics! 

 Grandma and Grandpa
