Welcome to Baby Wilson!!!!

Tonight Ashlee finally had her baby! She had been up since 1 in the morning and the latest addition to the Richards family finally decided to make his appearance to the world. He is 8 lbs 8 oz., 21 inches, and his head was 14.5 cm. Both mom and baby are doing great! Now if they could just decide on a name....

See I told you our blog would get more interesting. I'm currently in the middle of packing but I wanted to share our wonderful news with you all. I'll be posting more as soon as I can about Kevin's graduation, his family's stay, and of course our move. Crazy times, but so much fun!

Happy Birthday, Kevin!

For those of you don't know, today is Kevin's Birthday! He's spent his birthday the same as most others....finals. But good news is, 3 finals are done only 2 to go. He's so great! But hopefully once he gets back from his last final we'll have a little more to celebrate. The Spice cake is in the oven now and then its on to presents. :)

As if there wasn't enough to celebrate, today was also my last day of work! I'm free! I'm really looking forward to the break. Anyways, that just means the roller coaster of the next few weeks has officially begun.

School's out... FOREVER!

Huh? Kevin's posting? Well, it's half my blog too, you know!

Yesterday I finished my last class of my last semester of my last year of school. It's crazy to think that I've been going to school for 16 years. But now I'm done! Carli asked me yesterday if it felt "surreal" that I'm never going to be in class ever again. Truthfully, it doesn't. I usually get that feeling of "oh, wow, I can't believe it's happened already", but this time, nada.

I think part of the reason why is related to what my dad said to me on Sunday. When he did his internship before his last year of college, he felt like the entire school year dragged on and had less meaning than it had before, since he knew that he was already competent and capable of going out into the field and working. I feel pretty much the same way, only I had two internships!

Of course, I don't feel like I've wasted my last year here at school. I've really learned a lot, and I think the things I've had to do and work on have helped "mature" my knowledge of various fields in computer science. And I still have the possibility of doing a Master's degree floating in the back of my head, because I've always felt the desire to specialize. Whether or not this becomes a reality depends on many things.

Now, all I have to do is finish my finals and walk (oh yeah, and pack... *sigh* ) and then it's off to (too) sunny California and Apple!

(Can't wait for mom, dad and Jannette to come down!)
