He did it! Rick Ellis passed all four sections of the CPA exam! For those of you who've been involved in our lives over the last few years, you know just how awesome that is. He gave me the go ahead to open the letter when it came. Last time he was 1% away from passing and he left a voice message telling me he was headed for the closest bridge. He was joking of course but we were all very frustrated. I was so nervous when I saw the letter. I ripped it open and hollered with joy when I saw that he had received credit for all four sections. We then made this sign (Maia and Emily helped with the coloring) and anxiously waited for him to get home from work. We were all of the front porch when he came home and he too hollered for joy when he saw the sign and realized what it meant. No more studying for this boy. We celebrated by eating a 51 point chocolate dessert from PF Changs (reminder: you should only have about 25 points in a day!!). Don't worry, we didn't eat the whole thing in one night. We've been snacking on it today as well. Yum. Rick also bought a new game for his PSP and is excited to play on the drive to Utah tomorrow. Just like a little kid!
It's 11:30 now and we are getting up at 5:00 for our long drive to Utah. I've spent the whole day packing and cleaning. I feel like all I really want to do is sit around in my nice clean house and recover from packing! I'm sure once we get on the road I'll be more excited. I'm exhausted but couldn't leave town without sharing this good news. All the hard work finally paid off. Way to go Rick!
