Congrats! Graduate!!!

Tommy: Did you hear I finally graduated?
Richard Hayden: Yeah, and just a shade under a decade too, all right.
Tommy: You know a lot of people go to college for seven years. (we like to add 15 instead of 7)
Richard Hayden: I know, they're called doctors.

We have been saying this quote for the last 15 years!!!

Brandon finally graudated and we are so proud of him. I was saying to him after the graduation yesterday, that this is something that we have been working on the entire time we have been together and it feels good to have stuck in there and gotten it done!!! He has worked so hard for this.
Most probably don't know that Brandon has gone to 4 different schools and on top of the four, he has been enrolled at the University of Utah at least 3 times. Everytime we have moved, he has started another University but all of his credits don't transfer, and then you have to finish the last 30 hours needed to graduate at the University that you are going to graduate from. Really, he could have graduated probably 3 times by now but he had to finish his last 30 at Bowling Green which is what he has been doing for the last 2 years. I have watched how hard he has worked to get this done on top of working full-time, traveling every week, coaching kids sports, being a great husband and dad, and still making time for fun.

On top of this.....drum roll please..........he's ready to do it again!!!! Brandon was accepted to Case Western Reserve University for their Executive MBA program!! Case Western is one of the top universities in the country and it is a huge achievement even to be accepted to their program! Once again, we are so proud of him. He won't start the program for a year so he will get to take some time off from school for a little while.

Way to go B!!! What an awesome opportunity for our kids to be able to see you graduate and know how important it is to go to college! We love you and are so proud of you!!!!
