Daniel graduated from the University of Utah with his Masters Degree in Architecture! It feels so good to reach this milestone, for both of us. Daniel says he feels like every day is a weekend now. It's weird to not be worrying about what school work he needs to get done each night and just play instead. Emersen thinks it's great that Daniel doesn't have to go to school anymore. Now she asks when he'll be done with work. Ha! We are so happy to be starting this next phase of our lives (and making some money too)!
Daniel didn't want to participate in graduation, but he was kind enough to humor me. I felt like such an accomplishment needed to be acknowledged. It was such an exciting day. I am so proud of him! I could kick myself for not getting very good photos of the day; I was just in such a hurry to take them. This called for some photoshop help (though some of them were beyond help). At least I got pictures, even if they're not great.
Daniel's and my parents joined us for graduation in the Union Ballroom. They have all been so supportive of this entire journey. We couldn't have done it without them. The kids were so good through the ceremony. We did need a little iPhone help at times.
I almost missed getting this shot of Daniel receiving his diploma! I was too slow getting around the crowd.
After the ceremony, we walked to the architecture building for refreshments and to look at the final projects. It was such a beautiful day!
Daniel's final project was a designing a gondola system down Broadway in NYC.

For the first time in our married lives, we are no longer students! Hooray for that!
Congrats to the Graduate!
