For Starters...

It's about time I got sucked into one of these online blog things. But really I thought it would be fun to keep everyone updated on our crazy lives and what better place to do it than online? I presume it will become especially handy when we take off to grad school in August, so everyone can keep tabs on our lives and we can keep in touch with everyone else!

The newest and most exciting news is that Chad just got accepted to Purdue to do his Master's. This was his first letter from a grad school, and it was a "yes" so we're very happy. Chad just got back from visiting some programs in the Midwest a few weeks ago and Purdue was by far his favorite. If we choose to go here (and we're pretty sure we will) , he will get his degree in Human Resource Management and graduate in 2010 (holy cow!).

I (Bekah) just recently got hired as the newest Personal Assistant at Courtyard at Jamestown Assisted Living Community. I basically get hired by residents and their families to help them do things they cannot really do for themselves. I'm loving every minute of it. I truly enjoy the time I spend with the older adults at Jamestown. They make me so happy!

Other than these two bits of exciting news, we're just trying to finish out this semester. We're ready to be finished at BYU in April and move on to the next stage in our lives, but we're trying to enjoy the last few months as undergrads.

Well, I'll try and update this as much as I can and even try to post some pictures on here for all to see. We just bought our Christmas tree and once it's decorated I'm sure we'll put some pictures up.
