By this time next week Andrew will be finished with his undergraduate education forever. Well, besides finals week. I am probably ten times more excited for him to graduate than I was for me to graduate.
He has been working so hard, non stop, since we got married--and he's been doing incredibly well for the workload that he's been carrying. He takes 15+ credits each semester, sometimes having to get special permission to take extra classes. He works 25+ hours a week--this semester he's also been donating a lot of his time for the ULA/MPLA conference--teaching and working in the library. He finds the time to fulfill his church callings and spend time with me and Rachel and help out around the house. He's pretty much amazing!
We're excited to have the summer free of schoolwork. We've never really had more than a week or so of "no school" our whole married lives, so having Andrew just working will be a nice change of pace before we get back to the old grinding stone.
This week will be a very busy week--Andrew has several major projects to finish--but things will hopefully slow down soon!
Here's the graduation announcement we sent out to our family:
Andrew's planning on having Rachel walk with him, wearing a little cap and gown. We'll see how that goes.
