One Smart Cookie

Nammers and Allen with their "Smart Cookie Awards!"

Friday evening we went to an Awards Banquet for the Department of Landscape Architecture. Allen received the "The Honor Roll Award" for maintaining a GPA of 3.5 or more. It was at Pebble Creek Country Club and we had a wonderful dinner of prime rib, yum! We had a great time with his classmates and it's so hard to believe their 3 years of graduate school are coming to an end. Seems just like yesterday we started on this journey. I think Allen has created life-long friendships and we hope to stay in touch once grad school is over. Just thinking of leaving College Station is sooooo bittersweet! I know I'm going to cry the entire time while we pack...and it seems so silly because I'm ready to move on with life and onto our next adventure but College Station has been home for so long and honestly I think it's been one of the best places I have ever lived.

Allen will defend his final project on Monday, April 13th. I know he will do an amazing job but prayers will be greatly appreciated that day. He has been working very hard and daily to put it together. He is the only one out of his group who has a "fly-over" which is like virtual tour of his master plan in Cypress, Texas. The project is very impressive! His advisor who is also on his committee had so many compliments about Allen and just how intelligent he is! Allen really is ONE SMART COOKIE! Don't let him fool ya into thinking otherwise ;)
