Today was another red letter day for John who was sworn in as a lawyer in Utah passing the bar. It was a big deal! The swearing in took place in Abravanel Hall where the symphony performs. The lower level was packed as was the first balcony all around. There must have been 200 new lawyers admitted to the Superior and District courts. There were nine judges from the Utah Supreme Court and several Federal District court Judges who were there in their robes. John had studied hard for the bar, taking a month off work to study. Here he is with all his certificates. There were two rather good talks given by Judges and then there was the presentation of the young lawyers. They had to stand and take an oath and I thought the entire proceeding was impressive.
We were waiting outside on South Temple street and a fairly large group of Chinese tourists came by. John said hello in Chinese, one shouted something back and John responded in Chinese. There was a look of amazement on several young guys faces not expecting to hear fluent Chinese across the street from the Temple on their tour of Salt Lake City.

We are proud of John and this accomplishment.
We go to Spokane on Thursday. Time is flying by.
