Isaac gets in

Son Isaac sent a group text yesterday afternoon informing us that he was accepted into the PhD program at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. We were very excited and not just a little relieved to find out his next phase of life.

He will be doing his work in the field of ethics, and they only took 2 candidates. So not only is it a pretty big deal to be at such a fine institution as Emory but it's pretty select company as well.

We were also happy that he got into the school of his choice (and in a paid position no less). He had intended to apply at several schools but given Ricci's love for her teaching job and the fact that Atlanta has kind of become home, he ended up just applying there. So I guess they/we can plan on at least another 5 or so years of them being in Atlanta.

The reality hasn't really sunk in to me yet. I can't imagine what it's like for Isaac. Just knowing where they will be and what they'll be doing, plus the fact that this will be the most money Isaac has ever made in his life. Not that they're on easy street or anything, but I'm feeling very blessed and happy about things. So, there's that.

Peace out, folks. And in.
