It is pretty much official we are moving to Laramie, Wyoming.
We found out that Eric was accepted into the University of Wyoming probably around November of last year. We had decided that we would wait till we heard back from one more school before we made our final decision. We'll about a few weeks ago we received a letter from Texas Tech that Eric was accepted into the program as an alternate. I am really proud of Eric and all of his accomplishments and being accepted as an alternate is still a great achievement because it's a competitive program. So, part of being an alternate you have to mail a letter back to the University that if a position opens that you want to be notified. We mailed the letter back and are giving them until we move to Wyoming in June. This is something we cannot wait any longer on. When I called about apartments in Laramie, for the ones that we wanted to get into, there was only one opening and the only one she knew of was coming open in June, so we applied and now are just waiting on the paper work part of it.
I am excited for the move and for Eric to further his education. I am not looking forward to the long winters and the snow but I know that this is a temporary situation and I will just have to adjust and make the most out of it. What I am looking forward to is the smallness of Laramie. I am ready for a slower pace of life and to be back in a smaller town. Also not being too far from Colorado is a plus, I have always thought that it is such a beautiful state.
