Over and done


This handsome fellow survived this past weekend! Boards are over. And dental school is about history to us. We...er he, survived the last four years, and come next Saturday, you'll be looking at the newest dentist in our family. We're happy campers around here, and thrilled the end is oh so close. A few more patients to take care of, and even more to pass off to the 3rd year class, and it's over and done.

Even though, as a wife, I cheated the whole dental school thing, seeing that I only had to endure three years of it, not four, it was still a long (but short) road, and I'm so proud of John for all of the hard work he has put in to becoming the best dentist he can be. He's a dedicated one, and as someone who studied the bare minimum in college, I always questioned why he needed to study all.the.time. "That's what you do in college," he'd tell me. Of course it is! Some people are just born to be good students, let's home P follows in his fathers footsteps.

St. Louis, here we come...minus a few months detour in Utah. Sure, it's not really in the same direction, but somehow going there for a few months first, made the most sense. Family bonding time at it's finest, and now we get to be that couple that can pawn our child off on my parents whenever we feel the need to, right mom?!

Graduation in T-12 day!
