Congrats to the Future Dr. Nygard!



December 1st is the first day that dental schools send out acceptances and Eric got two of them today. I got this post all done with just the acceptance from USC. Within a half an hour of posting this, the UW admissions lady called offering Eric acceptance! I am so proud of how hard Eric has worked to make this a reality. We are so excited for him and he is going to make such an awesome dentist.


On Saturday, I had the chance to play in an alumni game at Big Bend in Moses Lake. I played there from 2001-2003 and it was so fun to go back and play again. We (the alumni) played against the current Big Bend team. I wasn't in as good as shape as I wanted to be and there were a few times I thought I was going to throw up, but it was still so fun to play again.
This is the picture we took almost 6 years.
