Sam recently passed his CPA exams! WOOHOO! I am BEYOND excited! Accountants usually work crazy hours anyways but to top it off he was always studying into the wee hours of the nights and weekends. I was going crazy! I remember when we first came out to CA and I was 9 months pregnant with Smith, Eliza was a 1 1/2 and Isaac was almost 3. One of my first days at church a lady comes up to me and introduces herself. When she found out Sam was an accountant she says, "Yay!, now we can be accountant widows together!" After church I grab Sam and desperately ask him if he really will be gone all the time. He sweetly reassured me that he wouldn't do that to me. It's probably good that we both didn't know how little we would see each other those first few years. I would have stayed in UT! ;) Anyways, when Sam's certificate came I quickly put it in a frame to hang up. Sam isn't too keen on the idea. If it were up to him he would probably leave it rolled up and in the back of his closet. But it's going up, probably just in our room, but I want to be able to see that baby. I survived-we all survived!
