One day I told Jason, "Holy cow, I can't believe graduation is in only three weeks!" To which he replied, "Actually it's in two weeks and only you and my grandma say 'holy cow'." So I only had two weeks left in Iowa before graduation and the big move immediately after.
And then came some packing and tons of stuff to keep me plenty busy. When we went to church the next Sunday it actually hit me that it was our last Sunday in our ward. How do you say goodbye to people that you have known for four years? Well you kind of avoid saying any goodbyes at all and just play it off like you'll be there the next week anyway. Because it's easier that way.
And then Robby B. (my papa) rolls into town a couple days later and we do the Nauvoo thing and hanging out thing.
The night before graduation more family joins the party and we have a big BBQ for all the graduating med students we hang out with.
But I don't say goodbye to any of my friends because why torture myself? I will see them tomorrow at graduation anyway and the rest I have plenty of time to say goodbye to.
Graduation was a rainy, fun, proud, and exciting day. We watched Jason walk across the stage as Dr. Jason Patterson and recieve his degree. But I didn't really say goodbye to anybody.
And then we were gone. Pretty much. I miss you friends.
