Graduation



Life has been crazy around here. Ben graduated on February 13th and mom and dad came out and Jules and the fam. It was so much fun having everyone here. We are so grateful we have the chance to live so close to Julie and be able to see all of them for the holidays. We will miss them when we leave. Here are just a few pictures from graduation.





I am so proud of Ben for accomplishing this. This program was so hard and I know it feels so good for him to know he is done. After all this program trains the best pilots in the world and now my hubby is one of those pilots. :) Ben has already left for training earlier this week. He has about 5 months straight of training. So this is the beginning of a long separation for us because I have to stay and finish school in May. Our anniversary was on Tuesday and Ben sent me an amazing bouquet of roses at work.

Ugh, that's such a bummer to be apart for so long. I'm so impressed that you do it! My Mother in law was saying that there is a train that goes from Vancouver to Tacoma so if/when(?) Ben has to leave we can easily visit each other for the weekend. We could have such fun!! I can't wait for you to get here.

Way to go Ben!!! These are some great pictures...You guys make such a handsome couple and I love the new picture at the top too. I'm so glad you get to stick around for a bit longer to finish school, but sad you have to be away from Ben.

I can't believe you guys are apart right now... But how sweet of him to send you all the roses. Hopefully time will fly - but I think when you are in school - time never really flies. Congrats Ben! What an accomplishment.
