Chris Passed the Bar!

I'm not referring to the establishment for the partaking of alcoholic beverages, nor am I referring to an event in the gymnastics portion of the Olympics, but this is in reference to the exam taken by those who have recently suffered through 3 years of law school and one big stinkin' test at the end of it all, the Bar Exam.

Which one did he pass?

The exam took place in July and now, finally in the middle of September he has found out the results.  We're so relieved, not that I doubted he would pass, but still it's nice to have that little fact tucked away into a safe place.  Even if we are still looking for a law job, at least the firms will know that they would be getting someone who passed.  We had to wait long enough and he still has to wait until Oct. 23rd to get sworn in and licensed. Anyway, that was the reason we went all wild and crazy last night with the pizza and root beer, nothing having been purchased from the bar while doing odd flip-dee-doos on a high bar, though Chris felt like running down the street jumping and yelling "I passed, I passed, I passed..."

Congratulations!!! YAY!! If you were here in Lansing, I'd say lets go all out and go to the Dollar Bar and go crazzzzy!:) HA! Yeah right. Those of us left here in Michigan are sure proud of you!!!!

Yay, Chris! And Becky, and Douglas, and Reed, and Isaac! Today, I'm even more convinced that while the actual taker of the Bar Exam is the most taxed, the family of the taker is stressed as well. I'm so happy he passed (I didn't doubt he would, either) and hope that the celebratory pizza and root beer tasted extra-yummy. Chris really should run down the street and proclaim his passing grade; I'd pay big bucks to see that! :)

YEAH!!! Progress in the process of settling down. Congrats! I did briefly talk to a couple lawyer friends in our ward and found out both are part of recruiting/ hiring, so maybe I could have Chris send them resumes or something. I'll find out more and let you know :). How exciting!
