Midwestern University

Last Friday while Tyler was on his trip to Missouri and Iowa for his interviews he received a phone call from Midwestern University saying he had been accepted to their school. We were all so excited and so relieved. It's nice to know that he has been accepted somewhere and now we can really start looking into the area and see if it's somewhere we want to go. Tyler really liked it down there when he went last week. I'm so proud of him and the hard worker that he is, what a wonderful accomplishment. He should be finding out in the next couple weeks if he gets accepted to Kirksville or Des Moines and then we can start to look into things more and really decide where we want to move. He had an interview lined up in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, but he decided to turn those down now that he has been accepted somewhere. I'm glad that he's done with his trips because I've really missed having him around the last couple months. Tyler's dad went with Tyler on two of his trips; I'm so glad that he was able to go with him. I really wanted to go to with him on this last trip, but he had to drive a ton and we knew that Jacoby would have a really hard time. We decided it would just be too hard, so I just stayed at home. He had a really great time and enjoyed both schools down there too. We will see what happens. Now this is all starting to feel more real!!! Congrats Tyler! You're the best.

My heart leapt when I saw the title thinking you were definitely going to Midwestern. It is an outstanding school. Who knows, maybe we will stay there for residency and we can be neighbors.(: Either way, congrats and good luck with your decision.

congrats Tyler!
that's exciting.
i think AZ would be a fun to place to live. it was pretty insanely hot as a missionary- but you'll be able to swim and not wear nylons/ride a bike/wear a helmet in the middle of summer so it will be easier to bear.
