No he isn't done for the year. He still has many, many tests this school year including shelf exams and the BIG boards exam. But this is his last regular ole' med school test. And that is enough reason for us to celebrate! It feels like a victory. One step closer to the goal.
So for tonight we celebrate. Ice cream and balloons! I even pulled out the banner the kids and I had made after his very first test.
Tomorrow the studying will resume and we will all jump back on the seemingly never ending medical education bandwagon.
I am learning to enjoy these small victories. The moments that I can see/feel like we are moving closer to the end (even if that 'end' is far, far away....). I need to enjoy these small victories and hold on to their memories for all the hard and trying moments in between.
Joe brought home gifts for the kids...sidewalk chalk! He didn't even know about the party. He is just that good of a team player:)
