Marcus graduated from Paramedic school yesterday!
Hallelujah and praise The LORD!
He started on January 2nd and it has been a long 7 + months.
Everyone said it would go by quick, but everyone lied! It's kind of been a beating. It's hard to go to school when you haven't been in almost 20 years. Marcus even had to write a research paper! The Internet wasn't really a thing when Marcus left college, so it was a new world of research and bibliographies.
His parents offered to take us to lunch after graduation.
So that boy picked Whataburger!
It was my mom's first time at a Whataburger! They couldn't believe it! She's on the back right.
A whole new world has been opened to her.
Now she just needs to learn to order from a drive thru window and she'll be set!
We are so proud of Marcus! He persevered. Now he just needs to take a National test on Thursday and Monday and he will be done for real!
I know he's ready to get back to the fire station. And I am sure they miss his cooking a little bit too!
