Air Force here we come!

So it is official.  We are now going to be property of the US Air Force for the next 7 years of our lives.  I have to say that I am so grateful for this.  Mike just found out that we got the 3 year Air Force scholarship.  Dental school is so much more expensive than I ever thought it would be.  Getting this Air Force scholarship means that all of our school bills are paid for and they will be giving us money to live off of each month.  There are always pros and cons to things like this but when they will eliminate $300,000 in student loans it is an easy decision.  We have talked to many people who have gone the military route and everyone seems to say that the Air Force is the way to go.  We feel so blessed and feel like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders.  Yah!!!

That is so awesome! I know Rhone's brother Shay did that when he went that route and I believe that has been the best thing for them. Good luck and I hope I get to see you guys when you come out for Christmas!!
