There aren't really words sufficient to describe the last five years of residency.  It was a learning and growing experience for sure.  The best part about it, is it's DONE!  CONGRATS, ERIC!  We're all so proud of you!

 We started out the day with a little paintball.  This is a yearly graduation tradition that they do, I think, to get out all of the frustrations from the previous year!  We all had fun and survived with only a few bruises and welts here and there.
Carter, Isaac, and Talon Bennett ready to show us how it's done!

 The big night!  We had a nice dinner and ceremony at the Westward Look Wyndham Resort.  We started out with the kids,  but I was SO happy we went ahead and reserved a room and a babysitter.  I think they were too!  So, no pics of them, but they were pretty proud of their Daddy, too. 

Eric's Mom and Dad and sister, Jennifer flew down for the big event.  They wouldn't miss it! 

My parents were also happy to make the trip.  All of the hard work and sacrifice over the last five years deserved a celebration!
There it is.  Dr. Eric Chapman - Orthopaedist!  Knee work, anyone?
Eric also was awarded the "Excellence in Research" award presented by the visiting doctor.

Now on to a fellowship in Sports Medicine at New Mexico Orthopedics in Albuquerque for a year, then on to the rest of our lives!
