congratulations jeff. we are so proud of you. we can not even begin to tell you how much. you have worked hours and hours of late nights, long days, tough projects and still always come home ready to see us, play with the kids and have a smile on your face. you never, ever complain and you are always content to work hard when you need to, even if you just had twins and you only got three hours of sleep a night for the last month. you are someone who i want to be just like. your contentment and joy in any situation is like no other person i have ever met and your confidence in God and His plans is always what gets me through. i could not have asked for a better person to stand beside these last four years and i cant wait to stand beside you for so many more. congratulations (almost) dr barstad.
get ready, tyler, here we come.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BEST SON EVER!!!!! We are soooo proud of you we can almost pop! I agree with everything Kristen said about you. You are an inspiration to us. I can't tell you what it feels like to see your son wear as many hats as you have over the last 4 year.....and do it with joy. You are not only an amazing son but a husband and father. We love you so much and are so excited for you, Kristen and the babies as you venture to Tyler. They are blessed to have you. And Kristen, you deserve a crown for standing beside him in this journey...Talk about sleepless night and days....oh my goodness. None of us know how you have done it all. Besides being the mother and wife that you are, you have undertaken all of these amazing creative avenues in doing so enriched the lives of everyone around you. We love you so much and thank God every day for the gift you are to us. YEAH!!!!!

Yeah Jeff! None of us are surprised here! It feels good to be chosen and to know that the place that you really want wants you too! And why wouldn't they, you're going to be a great doctor. I hope you guys have a wonderful themed party with matching shirts to celebrate!!!! KShea-I imagine getting through med school wasn't the easiest but it seems as though you passed too! Congrats, I'm sure you've learned so much. I learned recently that "staph" is not spelled as "staff". So in all this has Jeff's handwriting gotten any sloppier? PS I forgot the date and at first I thought your post was going to be about Jeff dressing Avery in clothes that matched. Some thing Kyle has yet to achieve. So happy for you all.
