Almost a choice...

So now that Northwestern has offered Bryan a slot and we are going next Monday, Bryan has also "sort of" been offered a slot at California too! I say sort of because on the telephone interview he had yesterday, the guy told him that he can not offer him the position yet, but he said he should let us know sometime next week and he thinks at that point we will have to make a decision...AGH! that is good, but makes things that more difficult.

I have to brag about Bryan for a minute. There are only 21 slots open for Chicago and 16 for California....That is pretty STIFF competition and none the less he has basically been accepted to both schools! that is pretty AMAZING to me! Bryan has really struggled finding something that he would LOVE doing as well as make a good living at. I think he has made a WONDERFUL choice and I am here to support him.

I don't know if he will choose California of Northwestern, plus he has truly been given that option just yet, but whatever the outcome I know he will choose that which is best for him. I am excited to have him "start" his career and to "begin" our life together. I say "begin" in the sense that we have been working on college and getting him accepted and now that he is accepted and will be working on college again, I think that this time it will truly "begin" our future.

I am so excited for our trip next week and have been doing some research to find things that Kambria and I can do for low cost or for free...I have quite the possibilities! Since Bryan will be in class 8:30am to 5:30 pm with no breaks for lunch, except with his classmates, Kambria and I have to find things to keep us occupied! We are already signed up for a free tour of Chicago area as well as the Polish Chicago area! I am really excited about that one! Then Bryan can taste some REAL Polish food! There is a little Polish area that is actually quite big and a LOT of Polish people there...in fact I have a friend who served a mission in Chicago Polish speaking! I am excited to "relive" my mission a little bit and to include Bryan in this experience!

So that is our life for now...
