You know the movie "I.Q." with Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins? I love that movie.

What makes me go "Wa-hoo?"
Zeke just finished his Bachelor's Degree yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(but you need to say it like Albert Einstein/Walter Matthau: "vah-hoo!")

He has been in school off and on since before we got married almost 15 years ago! He has been in school continuously for the last 3 years! And he's been working full-time. I am so proud of him!
I am so glad he's done.

It will be so nice to have him back. Poor guy, the last 3 years have been HARD. When he is home (which is rare), he's either so tired he can't keep his eyes open, or so spacey that he can't function. I don't know how we've done it all... and during most of the last 3 years, I was serving as the YW President in our ward and Zeke was the Stake YM President. CRAZY!

I feel like this will be a new chapter. Heck, a new BOOK!! Zeke asked me what I want for Christmas... I told him, "I want to go to the temple with YOU! and I want you to watch the kids so I can do whatever I want for at least 3 or 4 hours all by myself!" Yeah, that is what I want.

YAY!!!! We are so blessed. Heavenly Father has given us miracles (great and small) all along the way to make this possible. I am so thankful. It really is a miracle!

I love this quote: "To live through a period of stress and sorrow with another human being creates a bond which nothing seems able to break." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Graduate he did!!

P.S. I just realized this is my 100th post!!! Hooray! Happy 100th! What a great post too :)


  1. Yay. I hope all your Christmas dreams come true.

  2. Ha ha I like the Yoda comment at the end. YEAH for Zeke. How exciting to be done!

  3. I love the quote at the end of your post. This is sooo true... Congrats to your fam on the accomplishments...

  4. Oh yeah! I am so happy for Zeke to be done. And no offense to Zeke, but I am even more happy for you. I know how it feels to have an exhausted student for a husband. When Scott was home he usually just stared off into space and still thought about homework. Happy, happy, happy.

  5. Oh, Lacy, you are so tough to have survived the school life that long. Way to go! And I hope it pays off big time in your futures. I can tell that you two really love each other and now you get to spend time together, too. Merry Christmas.

  6. Congratulations! Such a huge accomplishment, for both of you!!!
