Introducing Dr. Patel

On Friday morning, we woke up ready for a full day of graduation fun. (At least most of us were ready, the boys were a bit tired from all the partying they had done the night before.) We headed downtown early so we could have time to take pictures and hang out before the ceremony.

After grabbing lunch, we made our way to the arena for the graduation ceremony. It was a loooong ceremony, but I didn't mind it too much. I think it helped the boys get really pumped to cheer for our favorite dentist. Nate counted the number of children that were brought to the front, so they could go on stage when their parent received their diploma. I'm a little bummed that we didn't know about this, we thought we should have brought Emma to walk with Daddy.

Waiting for graduation.
There's our boy!
Some bored boys...
Ray was just so moved by the ceremony...
(Or he was sweating, we're still not sure.)
(Cue screaming/hollering/cheering/clapping -
it was LOUD!)
So glad it's over!

With Derrick and John.
We'll definitely miss these guys (and their families)!
Amit and Dr. Calabrese

We stopped outside to take some pictures with our new dentist. Here we go:

We were thrilled that everyone could be there for his graduation. We're all so, so proud of him! These past four years were definitely the hardest that we've ever gone through, but he managed to work hard at school and still manage to find time for me and Emma. I hear he was pretty nice in the clinic, too (unfortunately I got the mean Dr. Patel when I would would visit - I wonder why?). Amit has definitely proved that he will be a great dentist and I know we're looking forward to seeing everything else that he will accomplish in his career.

But right now, it's time to see how he celebrated his first night as a dentist...
