We are one step closer to graduation.  Yesterday, Timothy submitted the final paper work for his dissertation, and I passed my oral exam. To celebrate Timothy and I ordered our Aggie Rings! For those of you who don’t know, getting your Aggie Ring is a HUGE deal! You can’t just buy one. You have to apply for one, and meet the eligibility requirements- then you pay for it! J

As new comers to A&M in ’07 we didn’t get why the rings were so special, but after 5 ½ years we get it. The best part is we are the class of 2012. Our rings will have a 12 in the middle, and not only will it represent our class year, but also the 12th Man spirit. We will get to pick up our rings the day of Graduation.

On December 14 @ 2pm, Timothy will be walking across the stage in Reed Arena, wearing his brand new Aggie Ring to receive his diploma and to get “hooded.” If you would like to watch graduation online, we will send out a link that will stream graduation live.

In other news, we plan to move out of our apartment the week after graduation (around Dec. 21). We have not planned out our route yet, but somehow we will end up in NY to drop off our car before we fly to Israel.

On Tuesday October 2, 2012 Timothy Mann defended his dissertation and PASSED! As us Aggies would say “WHOOP!” While I was unable to attend due to traveling for work, Dr. Mann said he did a great job and he was easily able to answer everyone’s questions!

We would like to thank everyone, our family and friends for all of their love, and support. We would not have the success we have without all of you.  Thank you for words of encouragements, prayers, and even gifts. It’s amazing how many people have touched our lives as we look back at the past 9 years when we first met freshman year of college or even 5 years ago when we got married.

Please continue to pray for us as we make our decisions for our next chapter, “Life after A&M”.

10 more weeks til graduation.
