Graduation








That time has FINALLY come!! Since today is technically my graduation {Matt's is May 15}, I'm posting these fabulous pictures Jenny took in honor of my graduation day. Matt earned his DMD {Doctorate of Dental Medicine} from Case Western Reserve, and I earned my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University {whew...that's a mouthful}. At moments it felt as if this day would never come. We have been married for 9 years this month, and all of that has been in school. We have both been there for each other through thick and thin, through boards and thesis. In the mean time we've been raising three kids!! I couldn't be more proud of Matt. He's going to make a great dentist {even if his doctoral gown makes him look like Prince Humperdink from The Princess Bride}. Here's to the next chapter in life...Education chapter - CLOSED!

hey so I don't want to seem rude or anything, but I had some issues with my old email and I can't access your family blog. Do you think you could invite me with my new email??? if so, it's cheryl.maggard@gmail.com.
Thanks!

Ah, I haven't been on blogs forever it seems! I love these pictures! I never did the cap and gown thing for my MA. I was sad to miss it (Call family reunion in Utah). But you are in Cleveland, so you probably missed yours too, eh? You look so cute in that cap and gown! And Matt DOES look like Prince Humperdink. Ha ha ha. Congrats!!!! We're so proud of both of you!!!

I was at your graduation ceremony in Az and was wondering where you were. hahah
I got an extra copy of the book and left it with Scott Woolf to give to your mom when she got back. I hope you can find your name in there.
Congrats!! So proud of you guys.
