Bruddah's Graduation

Happy Monday! This weekend was amazing! I have SO many things that I want to share with you, but I'm going to spread it out a little bit for you. 

Believe me when I say the weekend was PACKED.

On Friday night my mom and I drove up to Appleton because my bruddah-in-law was graduating.

Graduations are always a big deal. It's such an accomplishment. A huge step. 

But this one was different. Ben had been in school for 11 years...11. ELEVEN. There were just  many obstacles that hit him along the way, but he finally did it! 

Although I also had a wedding on Saturday (in downtown MKE...1.5 hours away) I knew there was no way I was going to miss this.

Such an ecstatic lady!

Ben studied voice. He is a voice instructor and the school asked if he would sing at the service. 

He sang both the National Anthem and the Oshkosh's school song.

He sang beautifully.
And didn't forget the words. ;)

I still can't believe it! I am so extremely excited for Ben as is everyone else! He slaved away hard at his degree for a very long time. Now he will finally be able to put it to practice. 

Ben, I'm so happy for you! Congrats!
