On Tuesday, January 24th Jon defended his dissertation for his Ph.D. in Educational Leadership! His committee signed off on it so he is now, technically, Dr. Wylie!! We are so thankful to be finished and so blessed by all the support and encouragement we had along the way. (graduation coming this May)
Granna Wylie, Mr. Richard, BeBe and PopPop all came into town for the defense and a celebratory dinner. Here are a few pictures from "defense day."
|The kids ran out to greet "Dr. Daddy" when he got home.|
(No they don't actually call him that! But it was fun for the day!)
|If he wasn't squinting from the sun you would be|
able to visibly see the relief on his face :)
|Later that evening Jon opened a beer and this is what it said inside the cap.....|
what?!?! After 200 and some-odd pages I think he's really okay!
