The Graduate

Well, after ten semesters and just over three years, Marianne has graduated from the University of Utah in Exercise & Sport Science. We came to Seattle for Christmas and she had but one assignment remaining: a paper discussing renal (kidney) disease which she banged out in just a couple days. I am so proud of her. She's never taken a semester off (she went during all the summer semesters) and she has almost always given her all to learn the material (everybody does just enough to get by sometimes). She even got a 4.0 once. Here's a picture of the graduate:Now she will be transferring to Weber State University to finish up the prerequisites for Dental Hygiene school and then get that professional license. Such dedication. I, however, still have one semester remaining.

What the freak!! I had no idea you were going to do Hygiene! Are you Crazy!?

(I just realized me and McCall Morgan wrote pretty much the same thing! HA HA- we're so similar in so many ways!)

Congrats Mare!! We love you tons and are so proud of you!!! Hope to see you soon as you will have to come see a new baby very soon ;)

okay, about the craziness. As I re-read my comment, I realize how mean it sounds, I apologize. For some reason, I can't stand anything about hygiene. I despise having to polish and floss someone else's teeth! I love getting my teeth cleaned and polished and flossed, but I hated when I had to help in Hygiene. It hurts my hands and my neck and my back and frustrates me beyond belief. Plus, to me, assisting is where all the fun is at! I could never do it, but congratulate you for your bravery! jk Again, sorry I sounded like such a jerky pants!

Ha ha Marianne your comment made me laugh... but I'm not buying your self-accusation of being stupid. : ) Obviously this post proves that wrong. Congratulations! And I think its so cute that your husband writes on your blog...I wish I could get Jon to see it as a joint effort! I lost my link to your blog awhile ago so I am glad you left it on my page. College grad...that has to feel good!

I am very excited for you! Hygiene is definitely where it is at! You will love it, and it is totally worth it. The money isn't bad either! Congrats on being done at the U.

Doesn't it feel great to have a bachelors degree. I know you still have a few years of college ahead of you, but at least the bachelors degree is done. Congrats and good job! The 4.0 is definitely impressive.
