Go Cowboys!

I got accepted to OSU (Oklahoma State University) into the MA Creative Writing program. We actually found out two weeks ago, but I didn't get into the Teacher's Assistantship Program (which would've covered the cost of school plus a stipend). So, we weren't sure if I even wanted to go. After five semesters straight, the thought of two more years of English classes had me feeling a little burned out. So we debated and prayed. I fasted. I talked to some of my english teachers. I finally decided that it was the right thing to do. There is still a chance that I will get the teacher's assistantship program, the lady at the office said that I was first on the waiting list. So, if anyone turns down the offer, I will get a chance. We will be about an hour and a half from Natasha's parents in Stillwater.
It's a 19 hour drive, 1272 miles from Rexburg.
We will be moving sometime at the end of July or beginning of August. Since Natasha's mom works for Southwest Airlines, she is going to fly us out for free in a couple weeks so I can register for classes and check everything out. We are excited. We have loved Oklahoma every time we've been there. We are sure that it's what we are supposed to do at this time.
