Scholastic Updates

Well, Brian managed to survive his first semester at law school, while being engaged, and getting married just a couple of weeks before finals. His friends (and professors I might add) thought he was crazy for getting married in November. Well, Brain showed them what was what by pulling off grades he can be proud of. Congratulations honey!

I finally graduated from BYU in Decemeber, and very unceremoniously received my diploma in the mail. I never was into the fanfare that surrounds graduation, so I don't mind that you don't walk in December. I could always return and walk in Aril, but really, what is the point? No use going through all that when I already have my diploma in hand. I did graduate Magna Cum Laude which is something to be proud of I guess. So, all in all, I have a $20,000 piece of paper that I can shove under the bed to collect dust.

Brian is enjoying his new semester and I am enjoying my part-time teaching job at City Academy. I will certainly have a future post about City Academy--it is an extremely interesting place with some very interesting characters.

So I am not sure if you meant to do this or not, because it is fitting, but you called Brian Brain in your first paragraph. Thanks for coming to Atticus's blessing. We love you guys!!!

I'm going to be repeating those words all day. You are officially the first person I know who is smarter than Nate. Way to go, Boo!

Good job Brian - finals and marriage within weeks of each other - that IS a feat.

Congratulations to both of you. I can't WAIT to hear about your job. . .
