Hip Hip Hooray!!

Ben has finished his training! After eight months of training, Ben graduated on Thursday! We are so excited. Ben worked really hard, and he is now able to take a big sigh of relief. It was a long haul for all of us, and it is nice to have it all over.

We were taken from Ben's training center to DC in an motorcade type procession. It was fun with all the lights and sirens. The actual ceremony was held in a room with really neat antiques from American history-I don't remember all of it, but there was a famous desk. (I know-lousy details, but it was crowded, and I couldn't see the signs.)
Ben's dad and his wife Lani came all the way out from Utah for the occasion. We are glad they were able to come out and celebrate with us.

So handsome!

I can't even tell you how many people thought Jack was adorable with his little tie!

The family.

(Jack hates shoes, and took them off during the ceremony.)

Lani, Jack, Ben and Ross
Our DC adventure is all over (for now), and this weekend we are moving to New Jersey! We are excited for our new adventure.
