MBA Hooding Ceremony

I guess I've become one of those bloggers that only posts about big events- such is life with a busy young family! And this past weekend was especially busy- on the same day that Larry and I celebrated our 10 Year Anniversary (more on that and the 10-fecta to come), we also celebrated Larry's Graduation from his MBA program at the University of Tampa!

Friday, May 10th: The start of the end.... 
Larry won't officially be done with his MBA classes till August, but since there is no summer graduation, they walked in the spring ceremony. Which was great, and we got the feeling that the end is getting near- very exciting! It's been a long two years of every other Saturday sending Daddy off to class all day while we did soccer practice, birthday parties and playdates. Of late-night paper editing, and even later nights of reading, writing and finance for him! When you work 60 hours per week, have 3 kids and a wife waiting patiently at home, and try to get 20+ hours of MBA homework done every week, you learn to get by with very little sleep!! Its been hard, but I've been very impressed with how well Larry has tried to balance it all and the dedication he's had. He's done great in his program and we are all very proud of him!

Friday night was the Hooding Ceremony and then we all went out for dessert. Larry's mom, Diane, and aunt and uncle, Frances and Ernie, came down to celebrate the weekend with us.
(Thanks for the great dress, Janet! I enjoyed wearing it for this special night- and thought of you! ;)


Larry's "Co-Hort"
We've enjoyed getting to know Jason and Joni and their precious kids- and it's pretty good to have the top student in your program as your study partner! Good job on the speech, Jason!
Go Spartans! :) 
Dessert at Bella's- the Tiramisu is great, but the chocolate molten Vesuvio cake stole the show!
