Graduation times 2

It is here. Tomorrow, Friday, April 6th 2012 (on one of my great brother in-laws Birthdays - Happy Birthday Brett) Kasey will graduated with a Bachelors in Exercise Science from BYU-I. After four long, hard working, late night, testing center going, taking away from spending time together, years he has done it. He We get to move on and go into our next chapter of life (which right now is vacationing ALL summer). We are so excited for what lies ahead, even though it does make us a teensy eensy weensy bit nervous.

 I mean we have got the DAT {may}, application for Dental Schools {june}, interviews at lots of schools, hopefully {this fall}, and then we will hope to hear from someone in December saying: "Come to our school. No, come to our school. Oh, you want us to go to YOUR school". You know, hopefully it will go a little something like that.

 Welp, ladies and gents, he did it. I am so proud of him. These classes are not easy, I only know that because when he talks to fellow students about different subjects and classes (bio-chem, for example), he is literally speaking alien german. Ya, hard.

The day he got his cap and gown. I know what you are thinking, and yes he is handsome. Of course you have to try it on before the day of. So, clearly I had to take a picture.

Now, you are wondering "Graduation times 2? What does that even mean?"

Take a look:

No, that is not his actual cap, that is what we {at Elison Orthodontics} give to patients who "Graduate from Braces" and Kase finally did! That is how he has graduated twice this week! His teeth look so amazing. We even had a BBQ with friends to celebrate. He had a few requests of things to eat as a fresh, new toothed person.

I didn't have all of that for him last night but we did have burgers and that was enough for him.
