So Justin and I are going to have some big adventures coming up! We are going to spend a month in Germany (during May) for Justin to start learning German. Neither of us know ANY German, so it should be interesting. Luckily people there supposedly know English...
We also got a couple more rejections and a couple more wait-listed schools. The rejections were from Notre Dame and Chicago, the 2 schools we might have picked above UCR, so it looks like UCR is going to be our new home. Okay, so Chicago wasn't a flat out rejection...Justin got accepted to the masters program, but it has ZERO funding, so that's not really an option. Too bad. But I am excited about California! Here is my list of pluses for CA so far
-warmer weather all year long
-subsidized student housing--super cheapo!
-working out OUTSIDE (aka walks with the kiddos) all year long
-playing at the playground all year long
-only an 8-10 hour drive from both sets of grandparents (Joshua's grandparents that is)
P.S. Did I mention that it is currently snowing? mmmm, dreaming of California already...
