Dr. Niels

So he's not a doc quite yet. In fact, he has one semester down and only nine more to go. Yee-haw. Nonetheless, he was "cloaked" last night at his White Coat Ceremony.

What does that mean you ask? Why does he get one now before passing boards or anything? Well, we are both still wondering the same thing. Nonetheless, it was a cool event.

Apparently, the WCC is a relatively new ritual in some medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, podiatric and optomery schools that marks the student's transition from the study of preclinical to clinical health sciences.

Niels' mom and stepdad came in from Arizona to attend. We had a great time.

Playing dress up never gets old. His coat, my robe . . .

Looking slick Niels. Does this mean you can prescribe me painkillers?

Fun event. We always wondered why they gave white coats because they never wear them. Trevors is hanging in our front closet with a stain on it that he got on it the day of his white coat ceremony! Hopefully Niels puts his to more use.

You must have had a nice close seat. None of my pictures came out that great. And I didn't even know they got a group shot! Very cool. I will have to snag that one.

Coming from the queen of dress up . . . don't make me post the tuxedo pic. Or better yet, the African flutist one with tap shoes. . .
