I hope it's okay that I go ahead and make the announcement... but it sounds as though son Isaac has accepted a full ride to study at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. We are very proud and excited!
He and Ricci took a scheduled visit to Vanderbilt earlier this week. He said it was nice - and Nashville would have been a nice place to live - but they drove from there straight to Atlanta so Isaac could show Ricci around the Emory campus and the city. This has always been his first choice among grad schools, they gave him the best deal, and I think maybe they both kind of fell in love with it. So yesterday he signed on the dotted line.
They are now looking for housing - hopefully beginning mid to late summer - and a teaching job for Ricci. She speaks both English and Spanish (having majored in both at Anderson University and living in Spain for two summers).
I'm sure there will be many adjustments, but I think this will be a really fun and exciting time for them. Proud papa (and mama).
