I posted these pictures, among the first I took after Anna and I moved into our Loganville house, on the date shown above, and added them to the family blog version of Planet Burdett on November 19, 2017.
We decided we were going to wait until after the first trimester to tell people this exciting news, and now Anna's about 12 weeks along, so today, Saturday, August 5th, we told our families. They were, of course, very excited and happy for us.
I took pictures back in 2006 for the Ingleside JOY Club (Just Older Youth) Luau, which was at my parents' Lawrenceville house, and published these forty-five images on the old version of Planet Burdett. I added them to the current version of the site on November 18, 2017.
It wasn't the real end of our time in the MFA program; we still had (at least some of us) classes to teach the following Monday, papers to write, papers to grade, portfolios to turn in. And some of the people there were First Years, the lucky people who still have another year at GC&SU.
But it still kind of felt like something was coming to an end.
I'm glad I was there to take lots of pictures. You can see thirty of them below.

I created this post on the old version of the Planet Burdett Web site back on the date shown above and added it to the family blog version on November 16, 2017, eleven and a half years later. Since the original post, several of the people shown above have completed Ph.D.s,, and most of them (or us, I should say) are still working in academia in one capacity or other. All but one of the GCSU professors above are still teaching (at least I believe that's true; I know for sure that David has retired). There have also been several more babies born to this group (two of them to Anna and me, of course).
