Happy Graduation Chris!

Chris has been working on his MBA for the last five years. He started while we were living in Farmville and continued after we moved to Williamsburg in 2011 at William & Mary. We knew it would be a long process, but he stuck with it and we are so proud of him for finishing. During the course of his schooling, he changed jobs twice, got promoted, helped me through school and starting a new job, had two children, moved twice, and bought a house. We (as an entire family) are relieved to see the end of it and are so proud of his accomplishment.

Chris' parents came down to witness the graduation ceremony and celebrate with us. They also helped me contain the girls and keep them occupied during the ceremonies, which would have been impossible without them.

Thankfully, the smaller ceremony was an outdoor thing and much less formal. Eleanor was able to play around a little bit and ended up getting tired during the ceremony and had a little lay down :)

Eleanor, particularly, was enthralled with her dad and his hat...

That night we ended up going over to Virginia Beer Company, but after we got rained on, we headed over to a Mexican restaurant nearby. The girls did exceptionally well, which gives me hope for future dinners out with them.

The next day we went to church and then out to Bruster's for lunch.

Happy graduation Chris! We are so proud of you!
