So these past two years we both kind of feel like we've been a little stuck with waiting to start medical school and get the show on the road with our lives. We applied last year and unfortunately weren't accepted into any of the schools, so we had to apply again this year. Round 2 went much better and things seemed much more promising this time around. BJ had several interviews during December and felt good about all of them. When we heard back from the schools all of them said that he was on a wait list and could be notified as late as August of whether or not he was accepted. We felt grateful for the wait list, because it was definitely better than a "no", but a little worried because if they weren't going to let us know until August it made it a little difficult to plan what our next step should be. Well early February BJ had a phone call from Touro University of Nevada telling him that he was accepted into their medical school and that school starts the beginning of August! The school is in Henderson, Nevada which is just right outside of Las Vegas, so if anyone ever wants to come to Vegas make sure to give us a call! We were both so thrilled to know that he would definitely be starting medical school this year and this school was one that we both really liked and felt good about. I am sad to be leaving Utah and all our friends and family that live here, but so grateful to be going somewhere close by and where it's pretty much nice weather year round:) I'm so proud of BJ! He worked so hard to make sure he had a good application and has been so patient with this whole process. I know that he is going to be such a good doctor someday and can't wait for him to get started! Even though it's been frustrating waiting a whole year longer to get started, I really do feel that has been a blessing for us to be in Provo another year and know that Heavenly Father definitely has a better plan for us than we do!
Since we will be moving this summer to Las Vegas and for the past year we've just had one car, we decided we would invest in a scooter for BJ. We figured they're much cheaper than a new car, have way better gas mileage, he would only need to drive it to and from school which is maybe a 10 or 15 minute drive so it would be a good investment for the time being. I haven't been able to ride it a whole lot being pregnant and all, but BJ has enjoyed it when it's not raining. Here's the beauty...
Thanks again to our friends and family for all you guys do for us. We love you guys! And we love you Hadley!
P.S. I haven't blogged since they updated this website and it is so much easier. It's great!
