Happy Birthday, John!!






Tomorrow is John's birthday. His birthday always comes as a capstone to our school year. One more year done and a few left to finish. Good job being so diligent, Sweetie! I'm so proud of you! Wishing you a special birthday!

I thought I'd include some recent pictures of us since I have just realized that for some reason since we got married, we haven't taken as many pictures! Easter, finishing the semester, DC and Klembash (we will dearly miss the Klems as they relocate this summer!)

Graduation was a different experience for me this year. This was the first year that we didn't have a family member graduating. This was the first year that I had close friends with husbands graduating. And that was sad. This was the first year that I have felt ownership of our seminary experience. That change started at the beginning of the year, but I really saw how deep it had taken hold of me at the completion of this semester. And... this is the first year we are past our mid point of our Seminary experience. This year's Graduation left me with much to think about.

Speaking of monumental experiences, we're preparing for our trip! I can't believe it's already just around the corner!

Happy Birthday John!!!! Hope you have a wonderful day...maybe I should say weekend as well as you are working today and won't get to see much of Bethany!

Bethany, thanks for posting the pictures! You too are so cute together. I keep seeing pictures of the graduation this year at Central as well, and it makes me sad that we missed it as I saw so many friends there:( Hope you have a wonderful Friday with John, and enjoy whatever you have planned to do!!!!!!!!!!! Wish we could be there to celebrate!

Okay, now why didn't this show up in my Google Reader as a new post? I just saw it when your back from Israel post came up as new.

Loved the pictures and hearing your thoughts.
