A sunny day for Andrew's prospectus defense

It's been rainy, rainy, rainy since Grandma arrived, but Wednesday morning was beautiful so I took the kids to the park while we waited to hear about whether or not Andrew passed his prospectus defense.

The night before when he was working on finishing up his presentation he moaned, "I just wish it was 11:00 tomorrow!"

He texted me at 11:02 on Wednesday morning with three big letters: ABD

So now he's an official PhD candidate!

A much more relaxed Andrew met us back at the house a few hours later and helped clean things up a bit (we had so much stuff in our room waiting to go into the attic) before his mom got here. But before putting the kids to work cleaning their rooms and sweeping the floor we had a beautiful morning at the park.

We even took pictures!

Miriam took this one of me and Benjamin:


  1. What great pictures! You are all so beautiful!

  2. Congrats to Andrew! And, yes, the pictures are all great!
