Jerusalem here we come!!!

Wooohoooo!!!!! We just found out about an hour ago that Tom has officially been accepted into the Master's program at Rothberg (Hebrew U) in Jerusalem! We are sooooo excited! (A little scared, too. Let's be honest here). But mostly excited! We have been feeling for a while like this is what we're supposed to do...we were just hoping Heavenly Father agreed! :-) I guess He does!

The program is two years long, and starts at the end of October. He'll be heading over there at the end of June for some summer stuff, but we're not sure at this point how long he'll be gone. All those plans are still up in the air right now, but now we at least know where we'll be living this fall!!! Everybody start saving up your pennies so you can come visit us in Jerusalem!

YEAH!!! CONGRATS! That is so exciting! I know you guys have really been praying for this. Ok, I'm savin' my pennies. (And we've got to visit you before S.D. turns 2 so that we only have to pay for 2 tickets!)
