Remember that huge engineering test that Jared had to take in April? The one that consumed any spare time Jared had each and everyday of the week? The test that made Adelyn look at Jared like, "oh yeah.... I remember you- haven't seen ya in awhile!" because he left for work early and didn't return home until at least 10 nightly. For three long months. Yes, that wonderful exam has been gnawing away at Jared (and myself in fear that we all might have to go through it all again) as we've awaited the results.

So on Monday when we got the mail and found the letter from "Board for Professional Engineers" we were pretty scared what might be said in that very important piece of mail. First thing we saw was a list of "Deficient, deficient, deficient" awwwwwww!!!!!! What does that mean?!?!?!? But fortunately the next page read:
Section 1: California Law & Board Rules: Pass
Section 2: Civil Seismic Principles: Fail
Section 3: Civil Engr Surveying: Pass
Section 4: Civil 8 Hour: Pass


The "deficient" part was describing Section 2, which he failed- but we don't care about since 1. he knew he wouldn't be able to pass that one having NO experience or knowledge for that subject and 2. Jared doesn't need to pass it since Arizona doesn't require it to be a professional engineer!

I am just soo proud of him! This test is the equivalent of a Doctor passing his Boards and most engineers don't pass it the first time taking it. We are so excited that this is done and over with fantastic results! What a relief!! Great job hun! I love you!!!!!

On a different note, my amazing husband also barbecued some pretty delicious shiskabobs last week that tasted amazing! Jared cooked mahi mahi, bacon wrapped chicken, and shrimp. Here are some pictures from that night:



What a delicous dinner! I really hit the jack pot by marrying such a good cook!

That food looks delicious! Jared is going to have to teach Eric how to do that. And Congrats on passing boards...that is such a relief for all of you.

Yay yay yay!!! Congratulations Jared! I'm hoping and praying that I get these same results back when I take it in October!!! I'm totally dreading the next 3 months though... ugh.

Great job!!!
