First Day of School

Today was Nick's first day of school! It's been several years since he's been a full time student and I'm so proud of him for making the decision to go back to school to better himself and make a better future for our family. He's getting a bachelors degree in computer information systems. Basically, he's a smarty pants computer nerd. I just nod my head and smile when he starts talking about computer stuff.

Our singles ward bishop gave us a special red plate as a wedding gift. The plate says "You are special today" When a member of your family achieves or accomplishes anything of significance they are recognized by getting to use the red plate for dinner. It's a fun tradition we hope to continue as our family grows. Today it was christened and Nick had his dinner on the "special" plate.


  1. Love the plate deal. Jeff's mother has a red plate that says the same thing. So cute!

  2. We got that plate for our wedding too! We've used it a few times. Its a fun tradition that I think the future little ones will like. :) Good luck with school!
