Waiting Game

Life! There is nothing like life, isn't there.
I have been taking a class through BYU-Idaho in the pathway program and an institute class. It has been wonderful, I am sloooowly getting back into the hang of homework and understanding what the teacher wants me to do. It has been great though, having something to take me out of my mommy box for a little while has been just wonderful.I have made some friends in class and I actually feel like I can contribute with my "life experience" seeing how I am one of the OLDEST people in the class.
I am sure many of you know that we have been it quite the bind financially since Phil left Fox Capital (and before he left). Well, after weeks of contemplating Phil has decided to go back to school full time. He never finished his degree 10 years ago so we figured that now is a good time to go back and get a degree in something that he have a career and enjoy doing. He has applied to BYU where all of his generals are done and we are waiting to hear if he has gotten in. I know he will be and by this summer we will be living in Utah again for a few years while he finishes up his degree. He has decided to go into computer engineering, and anybody that has received help from Phil with their computers know that this is such a great thing for him to go into. I am thrilled beyond thrilled that he is going to be doing this. I know we have some tough times ahead but we have a plan! I am excited to be living by my siblings again for a little time they will be a great support to me with Phil being so busy. Since we will be on a college budget it will be good to see my family while he is in school.
So, YES we will be moving again and YES I am will be sad to leave Spokane but I am so excited about this opportunity for Phil. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, stay home with my kids. Now he is going to get an opportunity to do something he loves. This is so exciting and scary at the same time. Please, keep us in your prayers that he can get into BYU. I don't see why he wouldn't but it would be great for some extra help. Thanks

This is awesome Katie, I'm excited for you and Phil, but I also have to say BOOOOOO that you are moving- it seems like you just got here and we haven't hung out much! You have an awesome attitude about moving so much-I know I wouldn't handle it so well. How fun that you get to live by your family for a while!

You will be missed! I think it's so awesome that you both are finishing school. I am all for it. It felt so good to finish my degree last year. You both are setting a great example to your boys.

Best of Luck:)
