There's the right way, the wrong way, and the SHUMway!
Sam's schooling is a Master's degree program, with certification to practice as a Physician Assistant. All this means is that in May he got to wear a cap and gown and walk with the other students in the Graduate School commencement ceremony. Since he isn't really done until August we called it his fake graduation. It's a huge accomplishment, and I am so proud of all his hard work!
Landon on the other hand, had a very REAL graduation from preschool! I can't believe he is going to Kindergarten. His teacher is in for a treat!
His class had a "When I grow up..." theme for their graduation. For some reason I only found out he needed to wear a costume representing his future job a few days before the ceremony. After asking Landon what he wanted to be when he grew up, he replied "A Supercross Racer OR A Food Server at Supercross". In order to encourage the higher of the two goals we went with the former. I jumped on Ebay and ordered some used MX gear and he was in heaven!
