The Gem State

It's time to make an official statement...

Austin got accepted to BYU-Idaho and we start in September.
We also applied to Hawaii, but decided Idaho would be smartest route.
Austin will be a Biology major and will be applying to Dental school in 3 years or so.
So excited and relieved to see payoff from our risk of leaving our Californian lifestyle and career for something that we will benefit from for the rest of our life. 

We feel tremendously blessed.

This might also be the place to add that I am a little nervous. I have a feeling that upon getting to Rexburg that I will be in for a rude awakening on just how small the town will truly be because Salem is the smallest town I have ever lived in and Salem is not all that small. Here's some proof...

Salem, Oregon
  population: 156,244
area in square miles: 46.4

Rexburg, Idaho
population: 23,705
area in square miles: 5 (!?)

Oh yeah and it's much, much colder in the winter. 

 So, soon we will be trading cities for mountains so we better start buying some camping gear.

p.s Austin and I have never been camping. Haha that might make for some fun memories.
