Our LAST Firsts

The time has come for our last firsts.  Our last first day of school (well for me, Aaron will have one more for winter semester), our last first football game, our last first apartment together....and so much more.  Graduation is itching me, and I'm ready to get rid of the itch! (Only about 7 more months!)

Last first day of school!

Jaketh ran his first XC race on Friday! He was tired, but looked strong.  We are excited to watch him this Saturday again :)  
Really sweaty!  Ewwwww!

The Gang!  We missed like 55% 
of the race since we couldn't find the start, but we saw the end!

Lots of running lately (which is good!)  This is me and my TR major buddies! We ran the AddictIIAthlete 10K and boy was I tired.  Aaron and I were sick all it was a tired 10K.

Our LAST first football game of the season! (Home game) And boy was it worth it!  In the series of pictures here, you'll see us happily just getting into the stands (2 hours early! and still being up towards the top).  Not so slowly, you'll see the transition of events...getting ready to wait 2 hours, to being drenched in the middle of a flash flood... it was crazy! We ended up getting a better seat though :)  
The really funny thing was, that before we left home I kept asking Aaron if he wanted to bring his jacket...of course he kept saying no and I kept saying it's going to rain.  
I was probably 1 in 1,000 that thought to bring a jacket. Praises!

Natalie, Paul, and us! (friends from the ward)

Before the flood.

Yep, we could tell something was coming, we just didn't think it would last as long as it did!

And about 30 seconds after seeing the doomsday cloud coming....drenched!

Yep, I brought the blanket.  Can you tell, we're ALL wearing shorts and flip flops! 

Finally, the game started about 2 1/2 hours late...

turn of events...we were frozen!

It's been an interesting time for started, we both are sick!  Yuck.  We got strep throat.  I decided to wait it out and Aaron got the meds...lets just say it wasn't fun for either of us.  So we've spent a lot of time sleeping when not at school.  

Aaron has received invitations for 12 secondaries! While that is encouraging, it really cuts into our social security (like we even had any money in there anyway!).  Med school is SO expensive. I feel like they even want you to pay them if you say yes (oh wait you's called tuition!).  So, we're finally seeing the repercussions of med school, but it's also so exciting.  We got secondaries to the ones we wanted (Maryland, AZ, Minnesota, Kansas, and some others).  Aaron's always thoughtful and trying to find (and hopefully get into) a place that is more "family friendly" which we can only pray for.  

I am trying not to have any more breakdowns about med school.  Just trying to embrace it.  Aaron, on the other hand, embraces everything and so we trudge forward with his optimism and my fiery energy.  

What a way to live our last year at BYU.
