It was news that felt like a huge weight was lifted off our shoulders.
We finally knew where we would be the next four years.
I remember beginning the process of applying to dental school.
I always wanted to move across the country, it would be like a whole new adventure.
A fresh start.
Now that we are having a baby, and now that I’ve gown up a bit and learned so many things, I’m grateful that we are staying in Arizona.
Sure I’ve lived here my whole life, but I love this State, all our family is here, and for us, there really isn’t a better place to be.
Brand officially started school the 25th of August.
Day one of his next four years.
I had previously prepared him for the “first day of school” pictures, I let him know that -of course- I was going to take his pictures and that he should just cooperate.
I think he is starting to understand this whole taking pictures thing, or maybe he just reluctantly gives in because that’s what life is becoming, lots of pictures to capture the moment.
Whatever it is, he cooperated and we headed to his school. We went into the sim lab, I took his pictures there and I also took his pictures outside the dental buildings.
I’m so excited for Brand to learn and grow.
This week we were able to talk with a bunch of different dental students, Brand asked them questions about each year of school and I could see the excitement in his eyes when they talked about all the hands-on-stuff.
The actual working on teeth stuff, none of that boring book work.
Anyways, here’s to an exciting four years and the beginning of our chapter six adventure.
I’m sure it will be tough, but it’s going to be so worth it!
