He Passed!!

(Pictures were removed at the request of James)

James has been studying for his Series Seven test for the past few months. It was the only thing between him and a license to be a broker - the whole reason we moved to Nebraska. After hearing his stories about his horrible study habits (or no study habits) in college and hearing that most people don't pass this test the first time, I have been really impressed at how dedicated he has been about studying and wanting to know the material, not just pass the test. Today was the big day. It only takes a 70 to pass. But everyone says that this is a test you must respect. Very tough. So James passed with a ..... (drumroll) 87!!!! Can you believe!??? I am so proud. We had a little celebration tonight. We went to dinner with his family and had everyone over for dessert. Way to go James! We all knew you could do it!
