Graduation

Jacob's graduation deserves more than a bullet point...so here's the (slightly) extended version.


It all started about 5 years ago....



when Ella was this big.

Jacob decided that he wasn't happy with just a Bachelor's degree. He wanted to go back to school to get a Master's degree...one or two classes at a time while continuing to work full time at IBM.

(almost) Five years later...


Ella's (almost) five years older and Jacob's a Master of Engineering degree smarter.


The girls were ecstatic....


that BOTH Grandpa Bob and Grandma Wendy...


AND Grandma Jean and Grandpa Gordon came to visit them.



Ella during the "Star-Spangled Banner."


We couldn't keep Sophie's shoes on.



The Hooding.


It was a long day (and night).

We are so proud!!!(and I really like this photo, so I'm going to post it again!)
