Tony's a Master!!!

So it has finally happened!!! After 22 months of weekend classes and LOTS of papers and interviews and other work, Tony has finished his Master's degree!!! He is so relieved and I am so excited not to have to sit through Sacrament Meeting with all the kids by myself anymore!!!:) They had a celebration at DosHombres last night for all the "graduates". It was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures!
 
This is Tony and his classmates...they worked together on their final project. By the way the podium that they presented at is the same podium that President Obama delivered his speech from when he was in Grand Junction a few weeks ago! Pretty neat although I'm not an Obama fan!
 
His group again!
 
I guess this was part of the presentation...haven't gotten the whole story yet! (Take a closer look at Stephanie's (blong on the right)shoes...They are so stinkin' cute!!! Loved them! And she just had her first baby a months ago!!!)
This is Tony with the other two teachers from his school who did this master's program with him. And the "L" stands for Lesley...not LOSER!!!:)
This is Tony's cohort group that he's been meeting with for the past 22 months...notice he's the only man!! He's says he's pretty used to that...most of the people he work with are women!:)

It was a LONG 22 months and ALOT of work on his part but I'm so glad he did it and am VERY proud of him! I love that man!:)

"Master" Tony...Congratulations from the Butzin family. We just went thru the masters program with Addie so I know how hard you worked. This is a really BIG deal and we are thrilled for you and your family. Happy day!

Congrats Tony! I am sure you will all love having him around more! Very brave women you are for taking kids to sacarment by yourself. Of course your kids are probably better behaved than mine.
