L is for Let's Hope People Come Visit Us In Colorado

This past weekend Jon went and interviewed at the University of Colorado Denver's MBA program for a Master's of Healthcare Administration. He did so great in the interview the president of the school of business called him an hour after the interview and said, "We want you!" So yeah our first acceptance! It sure feels good. Jon has been working hard and we are both so happy it is finally paying off. Jon had a great time in Colorado. He bragged to me everyday about the beautiful weather they have. Yes I am envious since it is still HOT here in Arizona and it's almost October. He was able to visit my sister Erika and her family. They are hoping we choose Colorado because who wouldn't want us living by them. Duh we are the coolest people in the whole world!!

We are still awaiting a few more acceptances from other schools but I have a feeling in my heart that Colorado is the place for Jon and I to move on to our next step of our journey called life. We are so sad to leave our wonderful friends and family in Arizona whom we love and adore. But we may be back and it's only for 2 years. We have some BIG decisions to make though now. I have to decide if I am going to move out there with Jon in January or if I will finish out my teaching contract here in Arizona and meet him in May. I am torn. I do not want to be away from Jon for 5 months but I also don't want to terminate a teaching contract halfway through the year. Plus there are no guarantees I will have a good job in January if I move out there to Colorado. We will just have to keep praying and looking for answers! Thank you everyone for your love and support! Continue to keep us in our prayers!!

Sounds like a lot to digest! My husbands sisters both live in a suburb of Denver and love it (castle Rock). We do make it over there from time to time too so we could come and visit. His older sister is actually a teacher there.
