Match Day

Although we have known since December that we would be doing a residency in Las Vegas, all other 4th year medical students not matching through the military found out last week. We went to the event to celebrate with everyone and to enjoy the atmosphere. Here are all the medical students going up to get their envelopes to be opened simultaneously at 12:00.

Nate still had an envelope to open even though we already knew where we had matched.
Scott is also graduating this year. He and Nate went to BYU together.
It is incredibly hard to believe that this chapter of our life is coming to a close. I remember the moment I opened the envelope that said that we would NOT be going to medical school at the University of Utah...which meant we would be moving across the country...I cried and cried. And here we are completing our last year of medical school at Ohio State University...and I have cried and cried. Time sure flies.

Isn't it crazy when you move across the country and it is the scariest thought ever...but then to move away now is the scariest thought ever! I think the only thing to miss about the midwest is the humidity...well okay so also the tornados! But the rest of it I love!!

It was so fun to see you guys there and feel the excitement, even though we weren't surprised either. :)

Now that you have this adventure "under your belt" it must be nice to know that all future experiences will be just as rewarding. Fun times ahead! Love, a proud Grandma

It seems like only yesterday we were doing the match and now here you are. Time went too fast if you ask me. Vegas is lame (I just had to throw that one out there for reasons we both know.)

The Lord knows what He is doing doesn't He? He knew that the wonderful people in Ohio deserved a turn with J-Rab and Nye Guy and now He realizes we want you back! Or, at least close enough for weekend getaways! LOVE YOU!
