And then he was done

This past Saturday night was Bryan's residency graduation ceremony. It was a fun event at the Hyatt to honor the 17 family medicine doctors who are now completely done with their training. This month has been 7 years in the making for Bryan. Four years of medical school and 3 years of residency. But, since this guy decided he wanted to be a doctor when he was 8 years old, we can say its 21 years in the making....Ha!

We attended with Bryan's parents, brothers, and grandparents and it was so nice to celebrate with them. My parents graciously offered to stay back and keep Makenah and Logan for the night so we could really focus and take in this time. I can't even explain how thankful we were to them. I pictured myself going in and out of the program with baby Logan, and trying to keep a non-stop talking toddler quiet--oh, man! 

We enjoyed appetizers, a delicious dinner, and then the program began. Each doctor was honored individually by the faculty and we even got to see pictures during an accompanying slide show presentation. So many nice things were said about Bryan. I was honored to be his wife.

It goes without saying that I am beyond proud of Bryan. I can't even say! He has worked so hard for so many years, and to be at this place now is so exciting. 
We are starting a big new chapter as a family! Our upcoming move to Garden City so Bryan can start his practice out there is getting closer by the day! We are looking forward to the move, to Bryan's new job, and living near his family, but we are sad to be moving farther away from my parents and brother and our friends and church. 
Things are getting really busy around here, as we pack up the house and wrap up things in Wichita. This evening was a nice break to celebrate Bryan's accomplishments. 
So proud of you babe!
