The Mr. has his MBA

Last night marked Chip's very last class in the SLU MBA program. He participated in the May commencement (pictures here), but had two six-week required electives to complete this summer.

Wednesday night was his very last final ever. And I stress ever because I want to nip those PhD jokes in the bud.

For the analytical among you, Chip's stint in SLU's MBA program looked something like this:

months: 27
classes: 15

credit hours: 45
group projects: 17
times designated to be the speaker for group projects: 17
peanut butter cracker dinners: 32
new babies: 1
papers: 46
times the wife griped about getting out of bed to edit a paper: 16
As: 12
Bs: 3
parking tickets: 4
money "earned" on selling back company-bought books: $325.63
bottles of Maker's Mark: 5
number of public libraries visited on a monthly basis: 3

In case you can't tell, I am just a little proud. And excited. Proud of Chip for handily managing work, school and first-time fatherhood, as well as household and husband duties. Excited that we'll have him back full time on the evenings and weekends.

You did it. Loves you, I do.


  1. Great post, Deb. Congratulations to Chip -- what an accomplishment!

  2. Congrats Chip - glad it was you and not me! Plus now we have 2 SLU grads in the family, I think MC would make a fine little SLU student in 17 years (start saving now).


  3. This is GREAT news for all Team Botanical members! Congratulations, Chip!
