DAMOND WAS ACCEPTED TO THE MEDICAL COLLEGE OF WISCONSIN!!!!!!!!
Last Tues, he flew to Indianna for an interview. He has had several in the past month... hard financially, hard on his work, hard on me and the kids, and hard for him, because he had to do them :D, but we were grateful that so many schools wanted to check him out. We kept hoping that it would mean GREAT THINGS! Well, it DID! So he came back the following evening.
The kids and I waited all day to go get him. Alex was being kind of fussy and I had to dance with him for about an hour, right before we left for the airport. I kept getting this feeling to check the mail, but I didn't. I also thought several times throughout the day that I needed to charge the camera, but I didn't! I kept debating about going to the airport early and meeting Damond outside the gate, but Alex was being so fussy, that I didn't think I'd be able to handle it in public :) So we didn't.
We finally head out and I decide to check the mail. I immediately noticed this BIG envelope from the MEDICAL COLLEGE OF WISCONSIN. It felt heavier and more important than all the rejection letters we got last year, that I just had an inkling... hmmmm.... and then I saw the gold sticker on the back with their emblem. I just knew... well, sort of... but who sends an envelope with a gold sticker, if they are going to, "no, thank you"? So I ran back in the house to get the camera, but it was not charged! ughh! then I went for the camcorder and it wasn't charged either! ughhh! I was so mad at myself!
I picked Damond up. He talked to the boys and kind of told me how the interview went. We pulled into Costco Gas and I couldn't wait any longer! I brought out the envelope and he at first didn't want to open it, but he did :) and then we were jumping up and down, yelling... laughing...hugging :D It was a moment... I wish I had on camera!!!!! :) oh, well.
We were both so relieved to know that our efforts, (mostly his) had paid off. We are going somewhere next year! We don't have to do this process again!
The kids were excited with us, though they just think they have silly parents that get excited over mail :)
One sweet moment: we went to my parents house to tell them and when my Mom told Damond Congratulations, he said," WE did it. I couldn't have done it without her" He is so sweet to me!
Moral of the story: Never give up! Have Faith!
Lesson of the story: Always have your cameras charged!
