Graduation Weekend

What an exciting weekend we had!! Dustin received his Masters (YIPPEEE!!)! It was so much fun to have family here to celebrate with us in this exciting moment in life-and only wish everyone could have made it!!

Friday night was Dustin's "hooding ceremony" where you are hooded to recognize the completion of you Masters degree. It was super neat to watch Dustin walk across the stage and get hooded, and then to hear his wonderful recognition of the support he felt throughout these past two years.




Saturday we got to celebrate the beautiful weather we are getting here (get it now before we move to Vegas!!) and toured the campus one last time with our families.


Then everyone slowly left on Sunday...and we miss them terribly!! (Especially Halle!)

It was such a fun weekend, well that and a little bittersweet. Now we are on to the next stage of life, but have enjoyed Bloomington SO much. A dear friend of mine left today to accompany her husband on an internship for the summer-and it was sad watching her leave knowing that it will be awhile before I get to see her again...but hey- that is what blogs are for right?? (smile)
