Yesterday was a big day for this little family.

scheduled the date and time for the csection (July 6th, 7am)
finally got around to renting a storage unit for all our stuff in Henderson
finally reserved a moving truck to move said stuff into the unit in Henderson
got a call from CCSD's school psych in charge of hiring who said she had some good news for Johann
and last but certainly not least, were able to set a defense date for Johann's thesis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you've missed my whining and grumbling in the past, this means graduation is now a definite possibility, so long as he passes his defense...and finishes his portfolio which is he feverishly working on right now. We already know 2 committee members will pass his thesis, it's just the third (who also didn't give her okay until 4 minutes before the deadline yesterday) we have to worry about. But chances and hopes are the other two can, along with Johann, convince her.

We are beyond grateful that he is able to move forward even if it is at the very last possible moment and know we have received a lot of blessings in large part because of the prayers and goodness of others. We are grateful, so grateful for having this answer to our prayers.

So now, as I type, Johann is completing the portfolio, then we pack, head to LV to pack up the rest of the apartment today, move everything into storage tomorrow, come back to AV, try to organize the rooms we along with Henry will be staying in, go to Utah and defend the thesis (Johann, I'll be 37 weeks at this point), have a baby and decide if we go back to LV for a job or keep trying to find one here.

I'm tired. And need to go pack our toothbrushes. Wish us luck.

Wow that sounds crazy busy, but I am excited that it is all working out. Good luck and if you have time stop by when you are in Utah.
