It was a big weekend for our family with Sean graduating from law school at the University of Utah on Friday!
When I saw him all dressed up in his regalia I had to try really hard to hold it together! I am so proud of him for this huge achievement. I know it wasn't easy, but for those of you who know Sean well, you know he is awesome at keeping things low-stress. Despite working and going to school, he somehow always managed to find time for us too.Sean's parents flew in all the way from North Carolina for his graduation. We hadn't seen them since Christmas and it was so good to have them there!
My parents also came to support the new grad!
It is strange thinking of life without school. Either one or both of us has been in school our entire seven years of marriage (not including summer). I remember when we were first married thinking about how long the road to the end of school seemed, and yet, here we are.
I was worried about how the boys would do during the 2-hour ceremony, but thankfully they were well-behaved. I took Bode out in the hallway near the end and it took quite a few snacks to keep Jackson occupied, but we made it!
Several of the speakers mentioned the bad economy and how many of the graduating class did not have a job lined up (before trying to bolster them up by talking about overcoming the odds, etc.). Sitting there, I kept thinking about how grateful I was that Sean not only has a job, but one he loves. We are really lucky.
Congrats to you, Sean, for a job well done! We are SO proud of you!
