My darling Todd, of whom I am so proud, finally got to walk in graduation this month.
He completed the Executive Masters of Business Administration program at BYU and now makes me call him, "Master Todd." It was two long and hard years of working full time (70+) hours a week plus school 2-3 times a week. He braved presentation after presentation and hours and hours of analyzing case studies and study groups. I did not see him much, but would reach over and touch his side of the bed at 2am or 3am to make sure he was there.
(Here he is doing the walk of glory with Tyler and Brittany.)
His parents were up from St. George and his brother and wife (Tyler and Brittany) came down from Taylorsville. Mom and Dad brought Grandma & Grandpa Green down from Bountiful. We were grateful for everyone's support. We met Marie-Laure and the kids afterward and had a nice lunch somewhere with lots of good meat.
Through it all, he remained cheerful (if sometimes forced) and in good humor.
(Like all good Masters he actually wore his hood and pretended to be the Emperor.)
We are grateful to have lived in Provo this long only if it meant that Todd could have this opportunity.
(You can tell it's Provo because of the "Y" on the mountain, obviously...)
Maybe if we stay long enough, I will have my turn at a Masters!
Way to go, Bud!
The other grand event I have attended this month was the Princess Tea Party at the Beehive Tea room in Salt Lake. The book club ladies dressed up and brought their little princesses along for some tea and cakes.
I brought two of my nieces, surrogate princesses to an heir-less queen...we are on the far right.
Queen Amy and Princess Hannah were in attendance.
We sat in a private room where the little ladies had a table to themselves.
Each little princess received her own silver tea pot of hot chocolate, a silver server of cream, and a tea cup and plate.
They also dined daintily on flower-shaped sandwiches and strawberries and cream with sugar.
I must say that all the princesses really put their training to the test. While there was much fluffiness of dress with lace and organza abounding, there were no spills or messes (except for the littlest princess whom we graciously excuse! She has not completed her etiquette training being not yet 2 years old.)
We had a lovely time and I invite all of you to high tea anytime you visit! I love summer!
