A Little Announcement

Ten years ago we started on a long journey.  If we knew then, that it was going to take this long, be this hard, take this much time and money, we would have thought twice about it.

I wanted to tell you months ago when we knew it was going to happen but Karst wanted to wait until it was official.  Well its official, all the requirements have been met, the tests have been taken, papers are signed and the state is satisfied.

 I am so happy that I won't have to hear "I need to study."  Really I am so proud of this accomplishment it was not an easy or a small thing to do.  The whole time he went to school he continued to work full time, while maintaining a 4.0.

When it came time to study for the CPA he was a new father, went through a couple of busy seasons and didn't ignor his crazy wife.  He will continue to work at the same public accounting firm he has been with for the last 5 years, he specializes in Insurance Auditing.

And since it is the wonderful BS (Busy Season), we will wait until June to celebrate.  I am thinking of having a book burning party, I don't think we will be needing all of those college text books anymore!!

Karst - I love you and am so proud of you, your commitment to your goal is inspiring!!
