Good luck and we will miss you!

We were hanging out at home last night and decided to see if my sister and David were up for an impromptu dessert date. We wanted to celebrate Michael's last night before starting school and do something we won't be able to do as easily in a few weeks.

We went to Iron Starr and enjoyed their delicious desserts. We had the double chocolate bread pudding and they had the chocolate cake. We had a fun time!

Here is Michael today leaving for work and then off to school for the first day of his 5 year PhD program.

He had orientation on Saturday, and they were told to have a talk with their significant other when they got home. They said to let people know they will not be as available anymore and not able to help with things at home that they might have been able to before, and that this program will be unlike *any* other program they have ever been in. Also, for any major life change you have, moving, changing jobs, having a child- expect to add another year on to your finish time.

I don't remember the whole spill but it reminded me of when I was in 6th grade and they were building up junior high and said "you will just be a number there no one will even know your name". It is crazy to think we will have a 5 year old- or maybe 10 year old depending on how many life changes we have between now and when he finishes.

Class is from 4-10 every Tuesday. I am excited for you Michael! Have a good night at school!


  1. Good luck Michael! Show 'em how it's done!

  2. Bet Isabella will pick a Tuesday evening to make her arrival!!

  3. Wow! That sounds intense. Good luck to both of you.

  4. yikes! I'm scared for you just reading this! If you need company Tuesday nights just let me know.
