Free At Last

Mr. Dunbar graduated last night.
We had a wonderful afternoon surrounded by family and close
Here are some random shots that somehow I deleted from my original post.

(Hooray for Chris and Jamie who turned into impromptu childcare and she was in like 4" heels.)
Congratulations, Mr. Dunbar!!

The celebration started with an early dinner at the Claim Jumper, they serve SO much food. We haven't been there in a few years and I had forgotten how big their servings are. WOWZERS! Jamie ordered the Widows Burger and her husband's face was priceless.

Bogie just people hopped to whomever's plate looked the most appetizing.

Afterward we all headed over to the graduation ceremony. Monkey was not too pleased that Daddy came down the aisle and then kept walking. Thankfully our wonderful, and I mean wonderful, friends took our rambunctious little lads to run around outside for the ENTIRE ceremony.

Bogie is watching the large screen.

Almost two years, and it is finally over. My husband woke up at 4:45am 4 days a week, worked full time and went to school full-time. His graduate program, hands down, had more work than any program I have ever seen, and every single day he came home with a smile on his face and played with his sons and graciously let me complain about how "I couldn't get anything done." He is the best!

And now he is officially an M.B.A.

Awesome! You can't see them, but there's tears in my eyes. Tell him we're proud of him - for the Masters, but mostly for being a great dad and husband!

Congratulations! That is quite an accomplishment, you must be so proud!

Thank you for the CD! My favorite song is in Spanish, and I don't understand a word of it, but the music is awesome! I really appreciate it.

Also, how did you get the two wide columns on your blog?

I think I heard the big sighs of relief and accomplishment over here in Ohio! Yay for Mr. Dunbar...and for Mrs., too for flying solo when studying, papers, and exams called Mr. away.

Congrats Scott, we're very happy for you (though none happier than Irene I'm sure). Two long years and now you can celebrate, river maybe?

I am proud of Mr. Dunbar!!! I also agree with Cathy (no shock there)but congrats go to you too. You have grown, you have stretched when you didn't always want to, and mostly you kept your sanity in tact (well most days!) You succeeded and now know that when other rough patches come, you can succeed at those too. A job well done for the two of you! Wish we could have been there.
