Too Legit to Quit!

It is now legit! Tyler is becoming a Doctor. They had their induction ceremony on Saturday and today school really began. The induction ceremony is kind of like graduation, but at the beginning. Tyler got his white coat and stethoscope. They walk down the aisle of a scottish band (why a scottish band? we don't know).


They announce their names one by one as they pick up their stethoscopes and there were a few very good speakers.
This is a picture of two of the guys Tyler has made friends with. There are a group of them that like to go play basketball together.

Here is a picture of our new friends the Mitchells. Rachel Mitchell is the only other person in Tyler's class of 100 students that is LDS. Bindi is one and Emree already thinks they are best friends. She tries to force her to take toys and stuffs food in her mouth.

The family!


It definitely made it all seem more real and it was fun to celebrate this exciting start. It was a long journey here and it will be an even longer journey to the finish line, but I am so very proud of Tyler and all he has accomplished (with my help of course :)). We always say that WE are going to medical school because WE are a team. I think it is kind of funny because Ty gets to go through most of the hard part. Me- I just get to swim and go to the zoo. Okay, so maybe my role isn't quite that easy. After the induction ceremony we went out to dinner. Did I mention that Emree loves lettuce wraps and pop?

Wow, that's exciting. I wish I had been there when Whit got his. Now I get to wash them every day. Haha.

You should be glad about the supporting and not doing. Docs have to do some NASTY stuff.

What a fun post, you look great. Yes it is "we are going to med school". I used to slip and say "we" had cancer, oops, but it felt that way some time. When you are a team, that is how it is.

See, look at you guys, already making friends. Emree is such a stinkin cutie. Hattie was looking at your blog with me and she kept saying her name over and over and couldn't understand why we couldn't go see Emree. We're excited to see you guy in a few weeks.
