Big Day at the Wilson House

Today, September 24th, was a big day here for two reasons. First and for most, it was Violet's 6-month birthday. We noticed she bares a striking resembelance to Livingston, the cabbage patch kid. What do you think?

Also, it just so happened that today I took and passed my general exam. What does that mean? I gave a 45 minutes presentation about what I plan to use for my doctoral thesis to a committee of professors who then grilled me on it for an extra 45 minutes. It also means I'm on pace to finish my PhD in one year. Violet was so excited by the news!
