well this has been a year of craziness.... a year ago we moved to Arizona to start a masters program at Midwestern in hopes to eventually be accepted to dental school! Dave spent the year pretty much locked in the library at school studying his butt off to make AWESOME grades (which he did) I am so Proud of him!!! we had such a good time in Arizona made GREAT friends!! Throughout the year the direction of going to dental school just started to feel not quite right. Dave attended some lectures on podiatry and other professional programs to see what was out there... he started shadowing a podiatrist and fell in love so the 3 years that we spent preparing for dental school and the DAT and all that goes with it i think prepared him for what was next... all within a 3 weeks he shadowed podiatrist, applied for podiatry school, studied for the MCAT, took the MCAT, and still studied for his classes! lets just say it was a crazy time for us! He was accepted to Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin University in North Chicago IL.

Dave graduated in May we moved back to Utah to work and spend time with family... August 5 we packed up the Uhaul and headed for Illinois the 3 day drive was well BRUTAL with 2 babies it was no fun.... but we got here with no problem at all!!! we are finally unpacked (we couldn't of done it without the help of Dave's parents) and getting back to our normal routine. Dave started school today and we are preparing ourselves for his long hours at the library... but we are living right next to the school so he can walk home and be here in a jiffy if i need him!!

We are so grateful for this opportunity to come to school and Dave to further his education... from what we hear Chicago is a fun place to live we are looking forward to all the exciting things we will be able to do here (if you have any suggestions let us know)

here are a few pics of our new little apartment
