White Coat Ceremony

 Yesterday was Eric's White Coat Ceremony.  At the University of Washington their first two years are primarily spent doing course work, while the last two years are spent doing more clinically based dentistry.  As the students transition into working in the clinic, they go through the white coat ceremony. This ceremony is seen as the passageway to being able to work on living patients.  I don't know about other schools, but it is a big deal at the University of Washington.  
Eric gave us the tour of the lab and clinic.
 68 White Coats
 My sister, Sara didn't have to work, so we were able to only bring Aubs and Tann.
 I am so proud of Eric.  He is has worked SO hard and has done so well and he even loves what he is doing.  We are so grateful for his hard work for our family.
 My parents were so nice and took the trip over from Spokane to support Eric.  
Eric's parents are out of town and weren't able to make it, so I wanted to get the best part on video for them.
