2 Biggies for Ricky

Rick has graduated! He received his BS in Exercise Science last week. We had fun participating in the graduation ceremonies, and we were extra happy to have Rick's parents with us.

and... Rick joined the Army! Their HPSP scholarship will cover all of our medical school expenses, and Rick will serve the Army for 4 years after medical school and his residency. This was a decision that we spent many hours pondering and praying about. We feel really good about it, and I'm very proud to say that he will be serving our country for at least 4 years. He was commissioned into the Army on Saturday.

Congrats!!! That's SO awesome that you've joined the ARMY. That's how my dad went through med school, too! And he also went to DC for school-so now you just need to do residency in Stanford:)

I'm excited for you guys!!
