Master Adam

This past Saturday Adam graduated with his Masters in Social Work! It was a very exciting and long anticipated day. Adam has been working very hard and sacrificing a lot for school for the past 2 1/2 years and it was so exciting to celebrate the culmination of all that. Adam's parents, both his sisters, our niece, our cousin-in-law, and my grandparents all made it out for the big day and it was a lot of fun.

It was the most exuberant and exciting graduation I have ever attended! There was extreme cheering, yelling, clapping, and standing up for pretty much every graduate. The speaker was the new Associate Dean for the School of Social Work (it was only Social Work graduates) and surpassed any graduation speaker I have ever heard; she was inspiring, funny, and to the point (ie not very long!).

Here are some pictures of the big day:

It was a wonderful celebration and we're so so happy he is done with school...for now at least!
