Our Home is DC

We have been living in Washington DC since mid August of 2006 and it is really starting to grow on us. Everyone told us when we moved here that it would take about a year to really feel like this was our home and I guess they are right. It has been about 8 months and DC is becoming home. We live in a tiny studio basement apartment about 380 square feet. We live in NW Washington DC on the border of Bethesda in a very cozy residential neighborhood. Ryan has been attending American University since August and is studying International Economic Relations. Ryan will have his undergrad degree in Spring of 2008 YEAH, but that is only the beginning. :) He has been doing awesome in school and works very hard. He received a scholarship when he first transferred and has kept that and made the Deans list this last semester. I have been working for an orthodontist in Chevy Chase Maryland in the front office. Although it isn't my all time favorite job it pays me well and I enjoy the people I work with. I applied for several colleges for the fall semester of 2007 and got into my number one choice AMERICAN UNIVERSITY. We are very excited to be going to the same school this fall. WE LOVE SCHOOL! I will be studying Elementary Education; I have about a year and a half left depending on how many of my credits transfer. We attend the Chevy Chase Ward in Bethesda Maryland and I think it is the best ward we have ever been in. The ward has truly been a wonderful experience full of brilliant and very loving people. We are surrounded by so many talented people ranging from artists, historians, lawyers, government officials, and more; the ward is truly diverse and full of amazing people.
