Count Down!

Here's the boys looking very scholarly!

84 more days! That's the number of days until Cam is DONE with grad school! I think I'll make a big paper chain and rip off one each day. I can't wait!!!

This quarter is nearly over. The best news is that Cam finished his thesis and it was accepted with flying colors. Great job Cam. please never say the words thesis, final project, or scholarly paper to me again. :) Cam will be presenting the paper in early June. His thesis (oops, I had to say the word again) topic was on the long term stress and effects of raising a child with special needs. Much of the research hit home with us and there were lots of tears shed. I have yet to read the paper (don't want to say the word again)'s 28 pages long and I'll need some quiet time to read it. That should happen about the time Baby George goes off the college. No, I plan to read it soon and possibly attend Cam's presentation.

We have lots of graduation stuff on the calendar. A brunch that Cam and I are attending. Truthfully, it doesn't sound too interesting to attend this brunch and listen to speakers from the University...but hey, it's food, it's NO KIDS, and it's a 30 minute car ride each way alone to chat with Cam in the car. So, I'm in!

Also, on the calendar is graduation. We are still trying to figure out who will be coming to watch Cam walk across the stage. Okay, no hard feelings to you Cam....but, it is seriously boring and long. I will be going but probably the kids will be home with a sitter. I'm super proud of Cam and ready to celebrate but sitting in an arena in a major US city with thousands of other people is not very personal. I'm all for the party with all our family and friends. :)

Then after graduation in which they give Cam a fake diploma he will have ONE MORE QUARTER to go. Yes, that's right. They let you walk and then finish. The final quarter will be 4 days of clinical and then his paying job of 2 12 hr. shifts a week. I can't wait for that to be over...and it hasn't even started yet. But, the end is in sight. It's getting brighter each day...of my countdown. 84 days to go.


  1. Yay! Congrats to Cam. You are my hero for all that you do. (I think the paper chain is a great idea:))

  2. I am so happy for all of you! It must have been such a sacrifice for every single of you. You have my admiration, as does Cam.
    Hawaii is just that much closer for you :)

  3. Congratulations to Cam! Please tell him Nana Bill and I are so proud of him and we want to take you both out to dinner to celebrate.
