Kam's Graduation

As usual we have been extremely busy with all we have going on, and the past few weeks have been no exception. In the past month, I have worked 3 out of the 4 weekends and Kam has been busy, working to finish up his last few weeks of law school.
Last Wednesday, Tiffini flew in with Hailey for the Canton Flea Market, Kam's graduation and Chris' retirement. We had a great time visiting with them, and Ellison loved all over Hailey (which is unusual for her and she is usually slightly aggresive with other kids). I also spent that evening with the girls in Young Womens and working out details for camp and such.
On Thursday, I spent a few hours of my day walking around the Canton Flea Market, making a cake, visiting the eye dr and running other errands. I finally ended my day by covering the cake I made with fondant and finishing the decorating. I might also add that I made the fondant myself, which was interesting and much better tasting than the fondant I used from Wal-Mart.
Friday was Kam's graduation. We raced out of the house at 8:30 in the morning in an effort to make it there by 9:00. The graduation started at 10:00 and was an emotional ceremony for me. It was great to see Kam finally graduate and receive a dipolma and a Juris Doctorate degree.
Following the graduation, there was a reception for the family's of all the law school grads, complete with finger foods and desserts. Yum! We also spent time visiting with Kam's friend Trey and his wife Amanda and then headed over to the airguard base for Chris' retirement ceremony.
Following the retirement ceremony, Kam's mom, myself and Tiffini frantically finished up our errands for the suprise party we threw that night for Kam and Chris.
We had a great BBQ and swim party for Kam and Chris at Kam's parent's house. The Shields, Dunnaways, Jordans, Wings, Ross', and Trey and his wife Amanda all came. It was fun! Saturday, we woke up to clean the house and then headed over to Kam's parents home. Tiffini and I were able to leave the babies and head out for lunch and to buy supplies to color hair. We spent that evening swimming and playing the Wii.
Sunday, we went to church and then spent the afternoon at Kam's parents house. Tiffini was kind enough to color and cut my hair, and then we made homemade doughnuts and played yard games (bocci ball and water balloon volleyball). On Monday I went back to work and then finished the evening at Kam's parents house eating dinner with Tiffini, Memaw, Kam and the babies.
Overall, we had a busy and great week. We have been frantically preparing for Kam to get to Utah for bar prep courses...he is flying out on Sunday. We are getting ready for another few months of craziness as we get ready for and take the bar!
