BIG News!!

We have some wonderful news!! And we're so excited to share it with you!!!!!! Pat got a phone call the other day and has been accepted to the Nursing Program at the University of Utah. He will start May 12th and in 16 months, he'll have a second Bachelor's and be an R.N.! (He is in the accelerated program since he already has his Bachelor's). We are very excited, not for the going to school part, but for the opportunities ahead. So, wish Pat luck because he'll be taking hard classes and doing lots of clinicals. And wish me luck because we'll be eating our food storage for the next 16 months and I don't know how to cook with wheat!! haha Anyway, we're super excited for the direction this could take our lives. Pat wants to do travel nursing and eventually become a Nurse Anesthetist. Hoorah for Pat! Good job!

Congratulations! I understand how life might be tough for a little while, but hopefully it will be worth it in the long run.

That is so awesome! I don't know how to cook with wheat either...you would have thought we would have learned that in YW's or something. Yeah, right, like we even would have payed attention! If you come with some good food storage recipes you'll have to share them!
