Yes, you read that right. Jared graduated last Friday!!!! He is done with school FOREVER! I know some of you wondered if he would ever be done with school (me included), but he really is done. I am so proud of him and all of his hard work. We have had some ups and dows these past three years, and I am definitely ready to move onto the next stage of our life (you know--the one where we stop renting and start receiving a real paycheck). So many good things have happened, I can't complain too much. Still, law school is not for wimps!

I can't get too excited because Monday he started studying for the bar. It is going to be like a verrrry long finals week (almost 3 months actually). I have many activities and trips planned to get through it. I'm still pretty sure there will be bad days ahead, but you get through them right? RIGHT?

After lunch, Jared's friend Matt (who also graduated) rented out and invited us to Jump it Up--a huge room full of the blow up bounce houses (and slides, mazes, etc.etc.) We all went (minus Garth and Kristi) and had so much fun. Thanks Matt!
And we also went swimming a few times

It was a great weekend!!!

WoW! He did it (or YOU did it, since you had to work just as hard)! That is so Great! I'm really happy for you guys - those are some great pictures. We're doing good up here in Holbrook, but hopefully we can celebrate with you guys when we get back. Congratulations!
