Graduation Day

Riding the Cougar 2007-2014
 Last week was a great day in our family as daughter  Deezbaa graduated from Brigham Young University and had a very good track meet as well. Forgive me for getting a little sentimental. It is hard for me to believe everything that has happened since I first set foot on the BYU campus in 1974. I had never been there before and had no idea how much my life would change for the better. Now in 2014 I am seeing my fourth daughter graduate along with Oliver (BYU class of 2011) completing his M.P.A. program at Southern Utah University. Will we see some pictures of Oliver in graduation attire? Don't hold your breath!

With Coach Niklas Arrhenius, NCAA champion and Olympian.

In front of the missionary board at the student athlete center. Deez took two years off in the middle of her career to serve as a missionary in Arkansas.

Deez is on the prestigious All Time Top Ten board in Weight, Discus, and Hammer. Brother Oliver is on the board in Weight and Hammer, the only brother-sister team on the board and the only Rez kids.

Deez hit a Discus PR of  48.78 m or 160' on graduation weekend. Throwing her bodyweight.

In the BYU Weightroom where the foundation is built.

The BYU motto. We take that serious.
