DiploMom had her swearing in ceremony this past Friday. The ceremony marked the end of her A-100 training class and now she will have some additional classes and her consular-specific training before we head to Guatemala City in July. The ceremony was down at Main State in Foggy Bottom and the father-in-law and I were able to see a bit of the building and have lunch there with her before the ceremony.

The ceremony itself was relatively brief and was more solemn than the Flag Day ceremony.  There was more buzz surrounding this particular swearing in because remarks were going to be given by the Secretary of State, something that hasn’t occurred to an A-100 swearing in in over three years. Secretary Kerry delivered some great and encouraging remarks to the class before then swearing them in.

I’m so very proud of DiploMom and we feel great having made it through these first six weeks.
