We are so proud of her!!
After graduating from BYU in Linguistics, she moved to Greeley, Colorado to work on her master's degree. At the time she was single. Since then she married Dave, moved to Colorado Springs, and had a baby. Also, not only did she have to take all the classes for Special Education, but because her undergraduate degree was not in teaching, she had to take all the classes necessary to be certified to teach as well--including student teaching.
It has been a long haul and required a lot of work, but she did it! One week after Carly was born c-section, Camille was busy trying to finish up her classes. She would do her homework with her computer on her lap and her baby on her shoulder.
And now that she is all done, she isn't the only one celebrating.
We decided to spend the night in Fort Collins, rather than drive to Colorado Springs late at night, and the next morning we drove to Rocky Mountain National Park to admire the scenery. It was so beautiful there, and soooooo COLD!!
I promise Wes was happier than he looks in this picture. And I know he was much happier to be out and walking than in the car. He made the entire trip up and back, plus all our sightseeing, in the back of a car, seated sideways because the car seat took up part of his seat. What a sport!! Not only did he never complain, but he also entertained Carly for hours! :-)
We drove up close to 10,000 feet and found this beautiful frozen waterfall at the end of a frozen lake (that was just beginning to thaw so we couldn't walk on it). I loved it.
We also admired the mountain peaks--something we don't get to enjoy here in Phoenix. (What we call mountains in Phoenix are called "hills" everywhere else.)
But I have to admit, one of the most fun things about our trip was spending time with this little girl. How can you not love someone with eyes that look up at you like that? :-)
I am pretty sure life doesn't get any better than this. :-) It was definitely a weekend that brought great . . . joy to my journey!
