No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks!

Brad is down in California right now trying to map out the rest of our life, so I thought I'd give him a shout-out. We reached a huge mile-stone last week when Brad finished finals for the last of classes--ever! He has one more quarter to complete of clinic time, but we are glad to be done with classes. I'm so proud of him and how well he has balanced school and home life. He's already a fantastic chiropractor and I can't wait watch him put it all into practice and do something he enjoys everyday.

This picture was taken at Red Robin last week when Brad's mission president and his wife were in town and took us to dinner. They are the nicest people and we had a great time visiting with them. The kids were even good--Galla sat between them and called them "grandma" and "grandpa." She loved that "grandpa" let her drink his raspberry lemonade.

Brad comes back late tonight (I'll go pick him up from the airport just as soon as I finish watching "The Office") and that's a good thing because I'm not made to be a single-mom! Thanks for all you do, babe. I look forward to leaving "student land" and entering "real people world" with you!

Not fair!! Ok, it is perfectly fair, you have paid your dues and are moving on. I just wish we were there with you, or that you would be sticking around until we were finished too! Most of my friends will be leaving me in the next three months. :( Can't wait to hear how his trip down to Cali went and what you have squared away.

That is really too bad about Brad's flight time. What was he thinking when he booked that?! :) Enjoy your solo tv watching tonight. Call me if you need someone to laugh with!

Maylin, thank your for your support and for sharing your thoughts on my blog. I'm really sorry it was so upsetting. I'm incredibly grateful for a group of friends I can talk to when stuff like that happens.

You are super!!
