I think I’ve earned the right to boast a little about my amazing husband, as he successfully defended his dissertation on Friday! Whoohoo! I had the privilege of attending, and it was just so awesome to witness the completion of what has been a work in progress for the majority of our relationship (in theory) and since Jane was born (pen to paper).
The weekend was filled with celebrating. Mama and Papa V and Mama and Papa K were able to come in for the event, we had a great dinner with Eric’s board on Friday night, and then had his classmates and their families over to celebrate on Saturday evening. It was an exhausting but wonderful weekend.
We’re all recovering this week, and I have a heavy work load to boot. Jane is winding down from grandparent overload. Eric is trying to get his head on straight as he’s on to the next thing (articles for submission, teaching his classes, etc). No rest for the wicked at the V House!
