It's Raining Sunshine!!

So now that we've been in AZ for about a month now I guess an update is in order!

Nate Update
Started the physical therapy program at Midwestern University June 6th
The only classes I really hear about is anatomy and clinical problem solving. One REALLY time consuming and the other boring. You figure which is which.
Already had his first anat test and did great! That's a pretty big milestone for graduate school. First hard test.
Studies ALL the time. I'm proud of his dedication, even if I don't get to see him very much.
We celebrated his birthday last week. I took him to the Cheesecake Factory. This guy has never been! Talk about deprived! He's now determined to try all 40+ cheesecake flavors. Over time of course...

Ashley Update
Has been patiently waiting for AZ to finish verifying CNA license...NOT
Applied to a bunch of jobs. Has a interview on July 8th for a position at a hospital. Fingers crossed!
Sent in her CASPA application about a month ago to Midwestern University and A.T. Still. Filled out a secondary application for A.T. Still. Now just waiting to hear back for interviews!
Overall, just enjoying her time not working. This time won't last forever.

We both got gym memberships here, so we usually go together after Nate is done with school for the day to sweat it out! We've found that we sweat A LOT more here. Wonder why... Apparently it's been 110 or more for the past week. Thank goodness for AC. Nate and I both agree that we'd rather have heat than cold.

Nate has also had the privilege of killing some scorpions too, big and small. He's been a trooper, but I can't help but laugh. He's paranoid. I guess I don't blame him though. He won't walk around the house barefoot and is going to get a black light since scorpions glow under them. Makes it easier to spot them. I think I'm the only one in my family that has ever gotten stung by one. That's not bad statistics considering we've lived here forever. The fact that I got stung while in bed doesn't help relieve his fear though. In a few days we're heading over to Cali for the holiday weekend. Maybe I'll actually take some pictures to put up on here. Here's a picture from the lake that I took last night. I LOVE Arizona sunsets.
