Graduation Day!

The end of our time with law school has come to a close - Jeff officially graduated last Friday from Texas Wesleyan School of Law. We are all very proud of him and happy to have this chapter coming to a close in our lives. I think it would be more meaningful if he didn't have to go right into studying for the bar exam and all the stress that comes from trying to pass the bar. It will be more real when the bar is done and passed!

These last 2 and a half years have been long and hard, but yet, it seems so quick at the same time. I think the hardest part was the first semester. Jeff spent a lot of time studying and reading for his classes so he was not home much. I'm glad it hasn't all been like that. Jeff took some interesting classes, met lots of classmates and professors, and I think overall, he really had a great experience.

Jeff's parents and my mom came out for the graduation. It was held at the First Methodist church downtown. It was beautiful inside!

We got there early to get good seats and it was really handy to have grandparents there to help with the kids! Grandma Whitmer read to Sandra :)

Grandma held Mhari while she napped. (so nice to not be alone with all the kiddos!)

After the ceremony - in the courtyard.
