Nicholas got word from the university today that he has been tenured!! He heard from the dean over a month ago, but the official letter came today. We had a cake a month ago. Today, since I had about twenty minutes notice, he got a banner, which you can hardly see in this picture. Olivia decorated it with random stickers, and she drew a 1 and a cross "like the mean men put Jesus on." Oh, my. But that is for another post.
Congratulations, Nicholas! You deserve it! It has been a labor of love!!
