Today has been a bit of a whirlwind. This afternoon St. Louis University called Zack and offered him a spot in their Fall 2011 class. This was certainly unexpected. We were shocked, floored, surprised, and excited. Of course this happened after we sent in our money to The American University of the Caribbean and put a deposit down on an apartment there and even booked our flights..he even had a scholarship to AUC. Murphy's Law right?! They told Zack that he had until 5pm today to get back to them. He called about an hour later and told them yes! The shock is still setting in. In our minds we were so set and so ready to live in St. Maarten but we are thrilled that this opportunity has come about. Although St. Louis doesn't have perfect weather we are excited to live there. I was born in St. Louis and lived there until I was 5 so I am excited to get the chance to know my birth place a little bit better! Although we won't have a lagoon to wake up to, this view is still pretty great, right?!
We met each other in high school and have been married since 2008. At the end of 2010 we welcomed our little girl, Elise and in 2013 we were joined by James. We are currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin while Zack attends The Medical College of Wisconsin. He is in his 4th and final year of medical school and works very hard for all of us! Emily is lucky enough to stay home and take care of Elise and James.
