I admit, my blogging has been sparse these last few months. However, I do have pretty good excuses. We have been EXTREMELY busy! For the whole month of November Sam was gone almost every weekend interviewing all over the country. Sam has always wanted to have a career in the medical field. After much thought, research, and prayer, early last fall Sam decided that a career as a Physician Assistant would be a perfect fit for him. He sent applications to over 20 schools, and then we waited. About 2 months went by before we started getting letters inviting Sam to interview. At first he went to every one, which all happened to be within weeks of each other, and on opposite sides of the country. His 3rd interview was at the number 14 school in the country, Quinnipiac University. Right from the beginning he felt really good about the interview, location, and the program. At the end of the interview the head of the program told him she'd "never said this to anyone", then asked "what do we need to do to get you to come here?". By the time Sam got home there was an email, with a special "early acceptance" letter. Since this was the best school he applied to, he didn't bother going to any other interviews. Two of the 3 schools he interviewed with accepted him. He started out applying to every school he qualified for, just hoping for one interview. Now he was actually able to research and pick from the very best PA programs available, what a blessing! I am a little scared to be moving so far from home, but mostly grateful, and excited for our new adventure!
