Last Days

As we are getting closer to moving day, we are experiencing some exciting last days. On Wednesday Ryan had his "last day" of school (he still has a few more odds and ends to wrap up, but he turned in his dissertation- whoop whoop!). And today I had my last day of work. Very exciting...but a little sad because I will miss my friends.

On Wednesday Kate and I escorted Ryan to school and Kate got to ride the bus for the first time. She was SO excited. She has been wanting to ride the bus for a long time. It was a great way to send Ryan off on his "last day" of school. We are "totally" excited for Ryan to be nearly done (totally is a new word Kate is having fun using- "Mommy I'm totally freezing"- translation "Mommy I'm cold"). He defends his dissertation on the 14th of March and then he will be Dr. Ryan. We are so proud of him. He has worked so incredibly hard. Unless you or a very close loved one have been through the grueling PhD process, you can't quite understand how much work goes into it. Anyone who gets their PhD is crazy because it is a TON of work.

 Here are some picture of my cute students on their way to school.
