This is a "Flashback Friday" post in more ways than one. Funny that even though Austin is two years older he still has that same expression when he's disgrunteld about something. Landon, of course, looks just as happy as ever, and Cameron - always smiling, joking, singing, or doing something happy. This picture was taken the second year we were here in Iowa and finishing Dental School seemed millions of years away. Now here we are near the end and I have to take a moment to brag about my WONDERFUL HUSBAND.
The Air Force made us apply to a residency program and when we were making our list we put Colorado Springs at the top because (another Flashback!) I lived there when I was young and it was the funnest time in my elementary years. I loved GARDEN of THE GODS, Pikes Peak, going to Denver for FUDRUKERS, my dad teaching me to ride my bike, practicing piano on our electric keyboard, roller skating in our unfinished basement, and pretending to marry Danny from New Kids on the Block with my friend April. My parents used to take us to the Airforce Academy to watch the new recruits come in - the campus is beautiful and it was funny to see how much one person could get yelled at (not exactly, "drop and give my twenty!" but close). I have so many great memories. I LOVED living in COLORADO.
We just got accepted to an AEGD (one year residency program to become hospital certified) program in Colorado Springs. This is the TOUGHEST residency to get into because it is at the Air Force Academy and only the top 3% of cadets are accepted there. I have NO IDEA how Cameron has been able to do so well in school these past years. Since his second semester of college he's been a FAMILY MAN going to school. He is so good at BALANCING work, school, family, church. He IMPRESSES me more than I will ever be able to show him. I'm so proud of him. I KNOW that he will always take CARE of us. I NEVER DOUBT how much he loves me and our little boys. We are so LUCKY to have him. We LOVE you Cam. Congratulations on all your hard work, DEDICATION, and endurance (just a few more months!). You make us PROUD. Thank you for being such a GREAT HUSBAND and DAD.
