Today we got a letter in the mail... "Congratulations! We are happy to inform you of your acceptance......"
So, it might not mean anything to anyone, and might not get how excited we are about it, if you don't know where Bryan started out when we got married. BUT! Bryan got into Idaho State University. It might not be BYU or something people find as huge as that... But Bryan never thought he would be accepted into a community college, let alone an university. It's a big deal for him and for us.
We still haven't decided if we are going to move though. We are still waiting on some important things (like an answer). He might just finish up at WCC and then transfer to ISU or see if he can get into BYU or something.. It's still up in the air. LIKE seriously.. We have no idea. But now we know our options. We know if we do decide to move, Bryan will be able to go to school. We know if we stay here, Bryan will be able to go to school. Now, it's just figuring out what is best for our family.......
Let's look at a few pros and cons for each
Pros-we are already established here.. We have an apartment. Bryan has a job. We have good doctors for our kids. And we're close to the children's hospital (which we have to go to yearly, though by the end of this year it will easily be more like 5 times....) We have family here, Bryan's parents and My parent's both live close.
Cons-Bellingham is so freakin expensive. We've been here forever, would love a change.
Pros-we could afford a house, and we would be paying 100s less a month. We would be closer to extended family, Bryan's grandparents/aunts/uncles/cousins, closer to canada where all my extended family live. The housing market is way down, and so we could probably get a good deal, with the probability of making money off of it when Bryan finishes school.. We'll still visit washington yearly, until Hannah stops growing due to the children's hospital..
Cons- Bryan would have to find a new job (though we already have some hook-ups), I will have just recently had a baby, and family won't be as close...
So.. that's it.. Now time to go watch a movie and eat good cheese w/ crackers with bryan.
