"will you ride a school bus, daddy?"

That is what our dear sweet Anna asked Sam when he told her he was going back to school. And he just might take a bus from Lincoln Labs since they've got a free shuttle to his soon to be Alma Mater, MIT!

That's right, my incredibly talented, smart, hardworking husband earned (and prayed) himself a spot (one of 50) in the MIT LGO program, which is a dual degree program to earn a Master of Science in engineering and an MBA from the Sloan School of Management. (FYI- LGO stands for Leaders of Global Operations)

What's that you say? Why yes he did get accepted to both THE BEST engineering school in the country and the #3 MBA program in the country. Needless to say, I'm more (....much much much more...) than a little proud of him, and extremely grateful to our Heavenly Father for this wonderful blessing.

So far we've both been to some open house meetings where he got to meet his future classmates and I got to meet their wives, fiances, and girlfriends. We're waiting to hear whether we got in at married student housing. We (and by we I mean Sam) have filled out all sorts of financial aid forms, planned out two years of coursework, and tried to figure out the best time to move.

We're so excited to have this opportunity, and though it will of course be a lot of work and sacrifice for the both of us, we have no doubt it will be well worth it.... if for no other reason than that we'll get to dress Levi in this awesome onesie.

Hooray! Congrats to all of you. That is so exciting. I don't envy you those very intense two years (as I'm sure they will be), but I know you will handle it well and be the better for it in so many ways.
