Andreas graduated from the police academy this June and I could not be more proud! There was a very nice graduation ceremony which lasted a couple of hours with several speakers including police educators, a political representative, and graduating students. They students also made a slideshow of their two years together and a hilarious movie clip, which was quite impressive. Andreas' family was there to celebrate as well as our besties Ann and Björn. We drank champagne, ate smörgåstårta, and opened presents. It was a great day!
Police complete a two year university education and then a a six month aspirant program (aspirant is like on the job training). During his aspirant program Andreas will apply for a permanent job in different areas of Sweden. At some point in November we'll find out where Andreas will be placed. Even though we would like to stay in Umeå, close to family and friends, it's likely we may need to move, in which case another adventure awaits.
