A Big Day for Daddy

Early this morning Brian headed off to school....

He is in the last stage of his PhD work! This stage includes defending his disseration and making corrections or edits as needed. It's a big deal because they have to "defend" their positions in the disseration through questions by a panel of professors!!

Ok I would be nervous but Brian is ready.....

This has been a 7 yr journey for us. It's been hard but good. The deadline has been set though. He needs if completely finished by May 10th in order to graduate at the end of the MONTH.

We've come soo far and gotten a lot out of the program. More than just study and a terminal degree...... I've had to learn to protect his time, give him extra study time, lay aside my own desires. We've all learned patience, perservance and determination. It has definitely challenged and strengthened our marriage.

So PRAY for Brian today! For all the needed paperwork to be in to go through the defense today. For Brian's thoughts and words to be clear and thorough. And also for his safe travel today:)
