Navy Family!!

Well, although this comes a little late...Topher did have his interview this past Tuesday in Washington D.C. with the Admiral of the Navy and he got the job!!
We are now a Navy family! That's right all of you!-be afraid because my husband is a big bad sailor!! (or at least...he can pretend he is now)
He is now considered a Full Time Nuclear Power Instructor at the Nuclear Power School in Charleston, South Carolina. We'll be finishing his two years of schooling to get his Bachelor's here in Salt Lake, but then once he graduates, we'll be moving to S.C.!! We are very nervous and excited but most of all we feel so so blessed. This couldn't be a more opportune time for this miracle to play into our lives. Heavenly Father is truly watching over us and blessing us with sure footing every step we take!
We are so excited for the adventure that this promises to be for the next 6 years!!
Congrats to Topher, he is amazing!! And a large Thank you to all of you that were praying and fasting for him the past few days!

Yay!! Go Topher. You is da best Topher, navy man ever! We are so proud of you and are glad that, if you aren't street smart, that you are at least very book smart! :) We love you and are excited that you got the job, but sad that in two years you will move so stinkin' far away!!

Congratulations! We are all going to be so far apart. Who knows where we will be then. Remember that MIke served his mission in South Carolina? So hopefully we can make it back there to visit. Alysia I hope that you know that you are an example to all of us. Hang in there, everything does get esier or maybe your understanding just deapens.

Yeah for S.C.! I grew up outside of D.C. and although humid, I miss it soo much! And what a blessing for Grace. Sea level is supposed to be better for heart kiddos! I told Mike that if we have another heart kiddo, we will be moving most likely to Boston and stay with some of my family there, because the hospital is amazing and the sea-level factor! Congrats and here's to getting through school quickly!
Heart hugs,
Emily and Mike
