Graduation At Last!

On May 24 we enjoyed watching Ryan graduate from medical school at Des Moines University. It truly felt like something we accomplished together, and I was so proud of him. His parents flew out to be there for the occasion, but a death in the family took them back early and prevented them from attending the ceremony. He jokes about the title "doctor," insisting I now call him "Dr. Miller," the kids call him "Dr. Daddy," and that I be referred to as "Not-a-Doctor Brenda." He makes me laugh.

We are currently getting settled into our new home in El Paso. On July 1 Ryan starts his Ob/Gyn residency with Texas Tech University, so we are going to relish the next 8-9 days of vacation.
