G-R-A-D-U-A-T-I-O-N-!

WE DID IT!
WE DID IT!
WE DID IT!


chris last day of school was on the 3rd and graduation was this past sunday, the 12th!

MAN, it feels good!
i couldn't be more proud of chris.
he done good. he done reeeeal good.




bart and janie were able to take 6 days off to join us for the festivities.
we had SO MUCH FUN while they were here!
i'll post more about their visit next.

here's a picture of our whole group, minus bo & everett, and danny, carolina & kids, who made it for the ceremony but had to leave before we took pictures. thanks everyone for your support. not just at graduation, but for these long 28 months!

a special thanks to larissa for watching charlie so we could all sit and watch the entire ceremony. it was located at the hyatt coconut, so i was able to swing by afterwards and grab him so he could be in our pictures afterwards. thanks again, lari, it made it so enjoyable.

here are the 4 guys that survived this journey together:
aaron lancaster, steve carpenter, ryan wojnicki (graduated with 4.0!), and our chris

 and my lifesavers through this whole thing:
natalie lancaster and kandie carpenter

i thought, since we were only two minutes away from our house,
"how fun would it be to surprise chris with a tandem bike to ride home on?!"
so i called this bike-man that we know and had him set it up for us.
thanks bike man ;)

only problem: it was FA-REEEEEEZING!
so we rode around the parking lot a couple times for pictures and called it good




i love this CRNA

we really were meant for each other 



 the after party:





all thats left now is passing the boards
...piece of cake!

Love the bike idea. and happy birthday to Ellie. I laughed at your no princes party rule, I laughed to keep from crying, knowing that is what my future is full of, and it's ironic because I've always disliked pink and glitter.
