The highlight of the evening for me however, was seeing his face go completely red when out of the entire class, he was chosen to receive the award for outstanding clinical performance. What an accomplishment! He has worked soooooooooo hard... It is nice to see it all pay off.
I keep pinching myself... I cannot believe this day has actually finally come! It seriously feels surreal. Mike starts his new job on Monday, and a new chapter of our life has officially begun. It will be weird to walk in to a store and be able to buy something without having to over think it!

I just want to give a shout out to my Mum & Dad, without whom, the past few years would have been a LOT more difficult for our family. They have supported us in every way possible and both Mike and I, (and the kids), are very grateful for them. We could never repay them for all they have done for us, but as parents we hope that we can do the same for our kids when the time arrives. Thank you guys!!!!
