This graduation was different because the school was 100 years old so it was just us and the Dentists together for grad. It was so much more special than graduating with all the Health Science classes. It was special because I knew *mostly* everyone and it was just a little under 2 hours. That's pretty good, right?
Because of the 100 years we were allowed to have someone walk across the stage with us to make it memorable. I didn't pick anyone, but some chose their young kids or husbands to walk across the stage with them. I was happy enough to have my parents all the way from Alberta in the crowd to cheer me on and Kenny!
Here's some pics of the day...
I missed the memo about stopping for a photo. I just kept cruising!

After my graduation dinner I thought all the festivities were over until I got a voicemail from my pal Michelle saying she had an extra ticket for a big gala dinner for Saturday night. It had to do with the graduation week but tickets were $125+ tax. I was all for it and it was definitely a fancy gala. I'll do a little post on that tomorrow!
