Class Dismissed!

Today I am giving a shout-out to my sweetheart. He went to his LAST class today to earn his MBA! He seemed excited, but I'm pretty sure I'm just as stoked! He had classes on Friday nights & Saturday mornings, so now WE HAVE OUR WEEKENDS BACK! HOORAY!

I am so proud of him. He has never really enjoyed reading, but I have to say that he was completely dedicated and stayed up way into the morning on many nights making sure that all his classwork was done - no cutting corners for him (even though I tried to tempt him many times)! He was also determined not to sacrifice family time for school and waited until the girls went to bed & he had a little time with me before he started to study. In addition, he never studied on Sunday. I think those 2 things really helped him and he finishes with a fantastic GPA.

He didn't walk for graduation, so I feel a bit bad that there hasn't been near enough fanfare involved for this AMAZING accomplishment. We did make him a sign today, though, & had it on our garage. I LOVE YOU BABE! I am so thankful for your innumerable sacrifices to earn this degree to help our family.

YOU DID IT!

That is so great, congratulations Jason! And I am so impressed that he didn't study on Sundays and still made time to spend with the family. What a great husband and dad.
