Defended

Keith and I have officially passed our respective thesis defenses. I for one am amazed this day has come. It was only three short years ago that I decided to do a master's degree, now here I am. Being amazed that I got here does not mean that I don't know how it happened. A lot of work and a lot of support. So thank you, all of you.
My committee and me.

Me right before my thesis defense presentation.
Keith's parents were there and his mom called my mom (unbeknownst to me) and put her on speaker phone. I was standing at the front of the room just before beginning when Bonnie (Keith's mom) hands me her phone and tells me to say hi to my mom. I do and all eyes turn to me. Loudly out of the phone comes my mom's voice "Hi sweetie! I love you!"
At that point everyone laughed, my face turned red and we started the presentation. Love you too Mom.

Keith with his committee. He rocked. Seriously.

Charlie was so excited for us he did a little dance...
