The Graduate

Tonight, Billy graduated from residency! He received his certificate of completion of his family medicine residency from UAB-Huntsville along with 14 of his colleagues. (Billy doesn't officially complete his requirements until July 23rd because of the time he took off to go to China last September.) There was a nice dinner with the residents' families and faculty at the Huntsville Marriott. Billy was honored to give the invocation. He did a great job. The kids were so proud of their daddy. We had to shush them a couple of times for clapping and yelling too loudly for him. (I think they even started a chant, "Daddy! Daddy!", when he received his certificate.) I am so proud of him too!! I know full well the hard work and dedication that it took to get this far! Congratulations, sweetheart!!

Take a look! You won't see him in a suit & tie too often!




And now, his graduation (and Father's Day) gift. What else would you give a man of his distinction?!
