And the Verdict is…

UT Knoxville!  Andy got his first choice.  I am beyond words excited to be so close to my best friend, live in a town I’m already fairly familiar with, be only 2.5 hours away from many of our close friends, and in a city with an affordable cost of living!  We will start the housing...

Is it Thursday Yet?

The Doctor Is In

I forgot to make this a special post last Tuesday, but I am thrilled to say that Andy is now, for all intents and purposes, Dr. Andrew Herda, MD.  He has finished all his rotations, nearly all his grades are in, and he has completed everything necessary for his MD – finishing with honors.  All...

45 Applications Later…

We have 2 sitters “hired.”  We’ve interviewed them, let Riley meet them, and explained all our needs/wants/schedules to them and they are on board.  It’s nice having two people that we feel we can trust a phone call or text message away.  We might just go out on a date on Sunday to celebrate.  For...
