We are about to start the next step in this medical journey and a new phase in our lives. Justin matched in family medicine at KU medical center! We couldn't be happier to remain here and go with where that takes us. There are 9 residents at KU and Justin officially starts orientation the middle of June. He finishes all of his medical school course work this Friday. In between then and now he will help teach a medical students step 1 prep class at KU and help get our family moved in about a week.
We moved into a pretty small duplex the year Justin started school 2010. He have remained here because it's close to the medical school and it's been a good fit for this time. However, now we have the chance to get a home that will fit the needs of 3 little people! haha. We found a wonderful house in South Olathe. A little drive for Justin to KU hospital, but if you live in KC you notice there's a lot of driving around the city anyway. We decided we would sacrifice that for a larger home, in a great neighborhood, with kids outside playing, a little pool, a nice peaceful area. There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. A beautiful deck and yard. At this point in my life with little ones I feel I live in the kitchen our outside playing with the kids when the weather nice. It's a gift to be able to stay home with our kids. I love it so dearly. We will still be extremely tight on finances, but hey, who isn't these days :) In 3 more years we will finally be able to buy a home, and start the road to loan repayment! hahaha. What a great life!
For now, the kids are doing well, helping me pack every day. Baby boy is growing in my tummy and starting to kick a lot. I think I might have another active boy on my hands, ha.
Thank you friends a million times for your thoughts, prayers, help, and love during the past few years. It can be done. You can chose to follow what makes you happy, a different career path, even later in life :)
I'll keep you updated after the MOVE!
The very beginning of Medical chool 2010!!
