Steve passed the Bar Exam! He is now officially an attorney.

I am so proud of Steve. He spent 6 months studying harder than I have ever seen anyone study. He worked 4-10 hours a day, every day, even after flying or working here at home. I bet I told the children, "Daddo is studying, be quiet." about ten times a day. They knew he was taking a big test, but didn't really understand why.

But, I understood. Steve is a worst-case scenario person. He always thinks the worst is going to happen and is surprised and happy when it does not. As the economy tanked and people all around us lost their jobs, homes, and businesses.... Steve started to wonder what might happen if he lost his job at Fed-Ex, what if he were injured and could no longer fly, what if they decreased his pay again. So, he talked about going back to school and getting a master's degree in business. Many of the people in management at Fed-Ex have their master's degree and I'm sure you'd probably need that to even pursue any management position. Then he decided he already had a post-graduate degree and should finish that first! Good decision!!

Now what will he do with this degree? We don't know yet, but he will find something cool and unique, I am sure. Steve always does!
