may 9, 2009

On May 9, 2009 Byron and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary.

On May 9, 2009, Byron received his Masters of Science in Speech Pathology.

Over the past 2 years Byron completed over 60 hours of course work and 500 plus hours of clinical experience at schools and hospitals. He also completed Stats 221 through BYU's Independent Study program and worked on (and continues to collaborate with) a seasoned Speech Pathologist at UNC Hospital on a video to help Head and Neck Cancer Patients.

He not only excelled in his program, but shined.

While a student, Byron received the Dr. Sylvia Campbell Speech and Hearing Sciences Scholarship. He gave this program and this experience his all and it paid off.

We are so proud of him and lucky to call him our husband and "Daddy".

We were also so happy that so many of Byron's made the effort to come be with us. Byron's Mom and Dad, Grandmother "Maw Maw", newly returned missionary, Logan, and new BYU sophomore, Codi.Dr. Melody Harrison was one professor in particular that really supported and believed in Byron. If she has it her way, we'll be back in a few years to get our PhD. Why would you wish such a thing upon us Dr. Harrison? :)

We discovered very quickly once we moved to Chapel Hill, how wonderful Byron's classmates were. They were good friends and supports to Byron and our family. It'll be fun for us to stay in touch and see the wonderful things everyone does throughout their lives.

All, in all, it was a great, great, wonderful ,wonderful day. It was the culmination of a lot of planning, praying and effort and we're just so proud of Byron!
