THE DOC is IN!!!!

note: you will never see this much red on my blog ever again.
day 1
where's daddy???

i loved the snowy mountains in the background of this picture above.
day 2
dr. scout master giving a speech.
brennan kept saying "daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy" the entire speech.
then he screamed b/c we wouldn't let him go sit with dad.
aunt ashlie carried him away kicking and screaming.
it was awesome.
muchas gracias a-town.
"the hooding"
where he was officially given the title doc.
so cool.
i think this means we might be grown ups...
nah, no house yet.
we brought the pork loin back for the last part.
tamed him with a bag of m&m's i grabbed as we ran out the door.
one point for team mom.
go me.
"the oath"
the "sean-tur-age"
(pronounced like mirage)
his female study mates.
yes, he only studied with the girls.
his pt besties.
i love them all!!!
they loved the goodies i sent with sean to school;-)
the entire gang that showed up to support us:
left to right:
(brother landon, wife sarah, MAMA C, grandpa dick, grandma joi, sandie, dad/silverfox, me, max, B, dr. scout master, sean's mom val, bro in law shawn, sister nat, sister a-town, husband kenny, gpa casper, name dropper, gma capsper)
10 points if you actually put names to faces in that picture.
go you.
i think the kids were tired.
plus it was 500 degrees in there.
brennan's red sweater was torn off 2 seconds into the ceremony.
above: dr. scott ward (pt big wig) and dr. scout master
and it's been a nonstop party ever since.
as it should be;-)
i need a nap.

Sean is a stud! Just wait until you start talking pt just as much as Sean! hahaha! Enjoy this breath of fresh air! Don't know if I would have been as supportive as you have been.
