Graduation!


Eric graduated this weekend with his MBA. I'm so proud of him. We just got here a year ago, but Eric went straight through and a lot of late nights and hard work later here we are! He's been able to do so much in the little amount of time we've been here. As many of you know Eric studied in Switzerland during the break between his first and second trimester and then did a second summerim here in Phoenix between his second and third trimester. He's been able to work closely with several "real" companies on school projects including a small restoration company in Denver, Biosense Webster, and Target. He truly has worked hard over the past twelve months and this weekend he keeps thinking he needs to be doing something...I don't think it's quite set in that he's done!

Eric's dad and stepmom and my parents came down to celebrate with us. We had a lot of fun meeting Eric's classmate's families and saying goodbye.

An added bonus for me was to get to have our families intown for my birthday. I was spoiled. We had dinner with Eric's parents and once mine got here my mom made breakfast, they took us to lunch, and I got to go shopping with my mom and Krista. Once we said goodbye to our parents, Eric and I topped off the night with ColdStone (thanks Erica!) and falling dead asleep for the next ten hours.
