Rochester Minnesota, May 2010 to May 2011

Where to start? This year has been an emotional rollercoaster for me. It has been one of trials, learning and growth, frustration and enjoyment. Moving to Minnesota was unexpected, and a little discouraging at first. But we have realized that it was not all bad, and we were truly blessed in our trials. First of all, Jed published many papers in orthopedics and was able to present a paper at a medical confrence last week. And all of his hard work paid off! We matched into orthopedics at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio! We will be moving there next month, and he begins residency mid June. Also Jed and I had a lot more time to spend together this last year which was so great because Jed has been so busy the last few years of medical school. It was so nice to slow down, simplify things, and just be a family. We were really able to focus on what was most important. Perhaps one of the biggest blessings was the incredible people that we have met here. So many wonderful people have loved, encouraged, and helped us on our way. We truly learned to have a little faith in what God has planned for us. So another big move and another adventure is in store! We bought a house in Dayton and can't wait to move in! I haven't exactly enjoyed my small apartment here. Isn't it cute?

We are going to miss Rochester and will always remember the amazing people and experiences we had!
