I can't even begin to express how wonderful it has been to have our first year of medical school complete! This is something that we prayed for and wanted so badly for so long- and now that we are in the middle of it - it's so hard to believe. I am so proud of all of Mike's hard work. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to always be in class or studying. I know he would much rather be at home with us- and I know that it is often hard to walk out that door - as Collin is quickly on his heels- and Samantha is asking why he has to go back to school- but he does it. And I am grateful that he does it. I know without a doubt that we are the most important thing in his life but- this is his time to get the most out of school- not only because we are paying $40,000/year but more importantly because he wants to be the best doctor that he can be. I love him and I am so grateful for the way that he has balanced everything. It hasn't been easy.
I am beyond thrilled that we get to go and visit family and be near all our loved ones for the summer. Samantha and Collin are thrilled to have their dad around all the time. On Friday- from the moment Mike walked in- Samantha barely took a breath- she was all over the place! You'd think she was the one done with school! I hate to say this but I am already dreading July 28th!But know we will for sure make the most of this time that we have together!!!
