Curtis graduates from Seminary!

On May 15th, Curtis graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary! He spent three years working hard for this day to arrive, and he finished with the highest honors, Summa Cum Laude. Curtis now has his Master of Divinity! He had most of his family with him to celebrate this milestone in his life: his wife (me), his parents, one of his sisters, one of his aunts, my parents, along with several professors and friends. Chuck Colson was the speaker at his commencement, giving an excellent message on making the invisible kingdom visible.

We had several celebrations on behalf of his graduation, including a lunch with both sets of parents at our apartment and a cookout with a few of his good friends and their families.

We also celebrated by having a nice Italian dinner at The Hill with our families. The night ended with a McDaniel family game of Rock Band 2. Here's a picture of Karen (Curtis' mom) and I playing the drums together.

It was a treat to see my parents because I hadn't seen them much since Curtis and I got married last June. My dad had never been to St. Louis before, so we spent some of the weekend showing my parents around the area including the St. Louis Zoo, Ted Drewes Frozen Custard, and Grant's Farm.

I was very fortunate to have four days off during my busy season at work to celebrate Curtis' wonderful accomplishment! I am so proud of him! It was great to spend a weekend with both of our families and make lots of really sweet memories.
