Hey All

Hey everyone! Although our life here in the Springs is less exciting then everyone else's, I figured I better share at least a little about us. Jason and I are living in Colorado Springs where the rain never stops. Today we had a massive hail storm and then a down-pour of rain. I have to admit, I do love it, but it comes right when I get off work. So much for going swimming or doing something outside. Jason is working for an ad agency and is soon to move into the media department. He is way excited about that. Plus, he will finally work a regular 5-day week instead of his crazy hour schedule right now. I am working the last job I ever wanted to, but hey...it is a job. I work for LexisNexis as a content editor. The courts send us the documents and we publish them for the attorneys and such. I would love to be teaching right now, but no luck in finding a Family and Consumer Science position. They are getting rid of all the programs here, which is so heartbreaking. I am working with the Beehives in our ward and Jason is in the Elder's Quorum presidency. I just love it. I have way too much fun. That is about it....
Good to hear from all of you! Take care!

Hey Andrea!
Is Jason still thinking about going back to school to get his MBA? Because I was thinking that something that Jared did that really helped his reading comprehension on the GMAT and overall get ready for school was reading "The Wall Street Journal" every day. Maybe you could get a subscription for him as present or something? Just an idea! I don't know if Jason is looking at Purdue or not, but just so you know they really like Mormon boys and they give a LOT of finacial aid here! If you want to come check it out you are always welcome to come and stay with us! Good Luck! Applying is pure torture for the both of you. Hope it goes well.

Yes he is. He wanted to apply this fall and then go the fall of 2008, but everyone said that he really needs more experience or he would be wasting his money or at least taking a big risk. He never mentioned Purdue. His choices right now are Marriott School of Business, Penn State, Kellogg, University of Chicago, or University of Florida. Jason actually mentioned something about the Wall Street Journal. I think someone else suggested it as well. Guess that is a big hint if we get it from two sources. Although, reading comprehension is his best area, unlike me. Haha!! But thanks for the tip. I may have to do that. And who knows, maybe we will end up there.

It was so great to visit you guys in June! I'm glad to hear things are still going well. We are in the same position as you guys in the sense that Cody probably needs more work experience before reapplying to grad school. It is frustrating, but hopefully the work experience will be helpful! Much Love
