My Husband The Graduate

Last month was a big month for the Bell family!!!

My husband received his Masters in Psychology!!!!!!

Words really can't express how proud I am of him.

He not only did it but he did it well.

He had a busy and very stressful last 2 years.

He had a 2 hour commute to school, a 1.5 hour commute to his internship, and long hours of school work.

One thing that he never forgot in the midst of it was his family.

I never felt second towards his school work and I am pretty sure the kids did not either.

He would leave the house sometimes at 7 am and return close to 11pm.

He would always call the kids and I throughout the day with sweet messages and to check on us.

On his days off or when he would get off early he made sure to make us all feel important with his acts, words, love. We are so glad that we will have him more physically present .

The day before the graduation we took a 3 hour drive to the campus in Redding, Ca( my husband studied at the extension).

There was a reception for my husband and his Cohort the Eve of their graduation. Yes, he was one of only two guys in his class(the other guy was not able to make the reception).

It was nice to see him get personally recognized.

The kids wanted to show him some attention too!

My family and the In-laws enjoyed meeting his professors and classmates in the sun.

It was hot!

Afterwards we went to a local pizza spot.

Let's just say the place and the people were pretty interesting.
One of the songs that was song on the open mic went like this: "My life sucks, my life sucks,my life sucks....".

I researched it before we went and the place got 5 stars on yelp!?
The kids loved it and the pizza was great !!!

The next day after the graduation we went to a Steakhouse and it was really nice!!!

Everyone loved this place and the food.

We took time to honor the graduate with gifts.

He in return gave a great speech of gratitude.

It was a nice traveling event for my husband 's graduation.

 We were so amazed that our family took time out of their schedules to make a weekend trip.

The next day was our 6 th Anniversary so we were able to leave the kids with their grandparents.

 Mr. Wonderful and I drove to San Francisco for a 2 night stay in celebration of 6 amazing years!!!!

Congratulations to your husband! This is a major accomplishment, and he couldn't have done it without your support.

Your dress is cute, too.
