On the way home from Seattle last month, Eric and I were shootin' the breeze and I can't remember how it was brought up but I said, very much off the cuff, "I wish we could just go to Utah for summer term and I could just get my degree done." And Eric responded, "Why can't we?" We started talking out the details for the rest of the car ride home. Since then we've been working on it and, after lots of red tape we're officially headed to Utah for Summer Term at BYU.
A big kudos go out to Uncle Ken & Aunt Jan, for without their support this wouldn't really be feasible for us.
So this is a little of what our next few months look like.
Beginning of June - move out of our apartment. Move all our stuff to a storage unit in La Grande. Move in with the Lougees of Umatilla while Eric wraps up work. Then, head back to La Grande to stay with my family for a few days. Then, mid June, it's off to Utah.
Classes start June 18th.
Classes end August 6th.... and then it's graduation!
After that, we'll be gypsy souls til September. Hopefully spend sometime with Uncle Al (Eric's brother Alan who gets back from his mission shortly after we leave to Utah).
We might be able to make a trip back to Oregon in July for my friend Kylee's much anticipated wedding.
Then come September, we'll be in La Grande so Eric can continue on his journey towards his teaching degree.
We're working on a Bucket List for our time in Utah.
It's looking a little like this:
This is the Place
Concerts (like the Twilight Concert Series)
Hiking in the canyons
Meeting Mclain's baby
Getting Eric & Ella some BYU gear
