January was a busy month. Chris interviewed for medical schools in North Dakota, Reno NV, and for the WWAMI program here in Laramie. It was cheapest to drive to Grand Forks, ND so we packed up the car and headed out. The trip was so much fun. We stopped at MT Rushmore to break up the driving. Emily loved it. I do have to mention that she loved throwing rocks into a puddle more than the actual rock that we were there to see. After that we stayed in Mitchell SD, home of the Corn Palace! (yay) and then drove up to Grand Forks. Emily loved swimming in the pool at the hotel (thank you again Shane!) and then we went across the river to Minnesota to Cabela's, which happens to be one of our favorite places to shop, explore and hang out at. After he interviewed, we headed home, but before we did that, we stopped at the Cabela's in Mitchell, and in Rapid City. Amazing that we hit 3 Cabela's in 2 days! whew, busy busy.
A week after North Dakota, we sent Chris off to Reno NV. His flight was delayed and so it was dark by the time he arrived. Chris has never experienced Nevada at night, so when he drove into the casino district where his hotel was, he was, a little nervous. But he found his way around and had a good interview there. He went to the Cabela's in Verdi and then came back home to us.
The WWAMI program interview was in Laramie, which was amazing and pretty uneventful. But after the interviews we just had to wait, and wait and wait for results.
Here are some pictures from January and 1 from Christmas since I didn't get to post that either.
