One Proud Wife

As promised, here are some pictures from Aaron's graduation. I am so proud of my husband, and all of his accomplishments.

I can't help but think back to the day we drove our moving truck away from everyone and everything that was familiar to us. I was 7 months pregnant and Aaron was about to begin graduate school. As Aaron's family waved goodbye to us as we drove away, we were suddenly afraid. Afraid of starting a new life across the country, afraid of having a baby with no family around, afraid of the difficulties graduate school would bring...afraid of being adults. But, here we are. We made it through the graduate program, with a diploma and a toddler to show for it.
Between classes, somehow Aaron managed to work at a job, as well as spend time with his wife and son. He did an exceptional job, and I know that he will continue to do an exceptional job at whatever he does. I am one proud wife.

Aaron passed his boards a few days ago, so he is now certified! Thank you for working so hard sweetheart. We love you.

We were lucky enough to come spend some time with the Aaron's family for the Fourth of July, and we are having a wonderful time. It is so fun to see Sam play with his cousins. He is still working on learning to share, so thank you Jen and Nicole for understanding that it is a work in progress, and that he loves his cousins even if he has a hard time understanding the concept of sharing :) Next time we come, the cousins will see an improvement, I promise! :)

We are heading back East tomorrow, and even though we are still a little bit afraid of the uncertainties ahead of us, we are excited to begin yet another new chapter of our life.


  1. Exceptional post Bethany. You are one to be very proud of as well. Congratulations. It was so great to see you.

  2. Congrats!! I am so glad that it has been such a great month or two for you guys. Has it really been 2 years since you came to Florida. Wow.
    Best wishes.

  3. We are proud of you!! It was so fun seeing you in St. George! I thought Sam did great playing with his cousins. :-)

  4. Oh my goodness, I remember you pulloing away in that white penske truck. That was slightly traumatic...and here you are! Congratulations Aaron (although late). We really are so proud of both of you guys! Way to go! Can't wait to see you next!!!
