What's Up Doc?

This phrase now has a whole new meaning in our family! Recently my brother in law graduated from med school, summa cum laude I might add. He is going to be an amazing doctor and it was so fun to share in the joy of his graduation. I use the word joy genuinely. It was written all over his face. Complete joy that he had made it through what I can only imagine were four very difficult years of med school. He was selected by his med school class to deliver the class speech during graduation and he rocked it, of course. Me and my pregnant hormones cried and REALLY had to try not to completely lose it. We are all so proud of you, Brett! His family had us over after for a crawfish boil which was amazing. I love crawfish and I have to say that Coach Barker boils a mean batch of crawfish.

The night before graduation we went to the AOA dinner because Brett was not only selected as a junior member, but was also President. I love to brag on Brett because he certainly wont tell you how brilliant he is... He is very humble for someone who is so outrageously smart and talented. It just adds to the reasons why he will be a wonderful doctor. 

Here are a few pics we took before we met up with him at the dinner. I love this family shot! I feel a little fluffy, but I guess I should since there are 6 of us in this photo :)
