Graduation Day!

Dr. Erickson

The day finally came! Congratulations H! Four years ago we moved to New York as wide-eyed newlyweds and it seemed like it would take forever to reach this point. He collected the Research Excellence Award and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology Horace Wells Award in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Luckily it didn't rain on the parade of graduates but rather turned out to be a beautiful day for the outdoor ceremony.

To celebrate, later that night we went to see "Wicked" the Broadway show, which was great! Many thanks to my team of babysitters for the day - Malesa, Linda, and Andrea! Charlotte loved them all.

Now on to the business of actually moving! Wow, is it a lot of work or what?!

It's such a relief to graduate and be done with school! I remember when Ben graduated 3 years ago and I thought, good, we're done, now we can start living. (Unfortunately for us, he's working much harder than he ever did in school and life is much crazier. But it's still worth it.) Here's my one tip for residency: Every bit of time off he can get, take it! Ben didn't his first year of residency and he was starting to burn out. So enjoy each other and I hope you LOVE being in Texas! By the way, your house looks awesome. I can't wait to see the inside.

Just one thing to say to Helaman: thanks for the Halls cough drop when we were waiting in line to go graduate. It was soothing yet refreshing.
