Dave has been accepted to 2 dental schools (UNLV, UDM), and waitlisted with Roseman. He has an interview with UoP on the 20th . UoP is his dream school, so we are excited and nervous for that one! As of right now we are settled on Las Vegas, and we are super excited about that. Sunshine, heat, and close to family/CA.
Dave also got offered the Navy HPSP scholarship. He is one out of 60 people in the country to get it! He’s awesome. They will pay for all of his dental school fees, and we will get a small income each month. Then Dave will work for the Navy for 3 to 4 years in return (depending which school we go to). We are excited for this adventure. We could end up living anywhere, maybe even Japan!
Winter is the pits. At least in Utah. Usually I try to have a good attitude about it, but this year is hard. Sally is too little to be out in the cold for very long, plus she can’t play in the snow yet, so everything we do has to be inside. And if you don’t want to spend money, there aren’t a lot of options. This is making me very excited for our pending move. We KNOW it is going to be a warmer climate. Can’t wait for that.
Dave is graduating from BYU at the end of April, then we are going to take a trip (Me, Dave, & Sally), to Hawaii! We want to visit Luke, Kari, & Simon, and Shan & James. Super excited for that. We were in HI the semester we were engaged, and we are so excited to go back! It has been 4.5 years. Can’t believe how fast time has gone by.
Sally has never taken a bottle, and she eats every 2.5 hours during the day, so Dave and I haven’t been able to go out at all! Finally, this past Saturday, my Aunt Megan was able to watch her for a couple hours while we went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. It was really nice! But it was super fun getting back, calling sally’s name, and seeing her light up and start crawling toward me (the most crawling she had done at this point!). So…note to self for future children, start the bottle sooner! At least every once in a while.
We’ve got some fun things planned for our last couple months in Utah – museums, a trip to the zoo, planetarium, fish tanks, maybe a baby swim class or two. Only 2.5 more months here, so we are going to enjoy it!
