Match Day Results!

 Oh, med school! It has been a ride and it's very quickly coming to a close. 
After interviews in seven states, lots of prayer, deliberation, compiling a rank list, and waiting and waiting and waiting. . .

Today was match day! The day when all the fourth year medical students find out (if they matched) where they matched, for residency. Want to know the results of our match?! 

We discovered we will be living the next three years in ---------->>>


 POCATELLO, IDAHO!!!


This program was our #1 choice! I'm so proud of Squire for all he has accomplished. The family medicine residency at ISU is a perfect fit for Squire and what he wants to learn to be a proficient rural family practice physician. He's so happy and I'm so happy for him! I'm looking forward to being able to keep pet chickens and try my hand at small town living! (We'll see if this hippy city girl will fit in!) Pocatello is a nice midpoint between both our families, too, so hopefully we will be able to see more of them.

It'll be quite the adventure to start from square one again. We will miss all of the dear friends we have made here in Tucson.  It's amazing how about 4 years ago, when we moved to Arizona, we knew nobody at all. And now, we will be leaving what has become home to us. It's a bitter sweet day. With blogs, facebook, and cell phones - we're really not so far away though, right?! Right?!

 Onward we go for a new adventure, my friends. Thanks for following us on our journey!

  2. It is hard to start over making friends, I know because I moved to AZ about 5 years ago. What makes it work is thinking of it as an adventure, and it seems like that's you're attitude. So, you'll do GREAT! Congrats to Squire for getting his first choice. Your pottery friend, Janice Pulliam

  3. Jami, congrats to you guys! It's been so long, but I still consider you a good friend. It's interesting that we are going through a very similar time right now, too! My husband is graduating from law school and we could be moving across the country or across the ocean (still waiting to find out). It is a little scary, but so exciting to embark on a new adventure. Thanks for this post. :)
