(This pic was taken on a hike where my mom first met David..we’d only been dating several weeks)

David is nearing the end of his second to last semester of grad school.  Or in otherwords he is nearing the beginning of his LAST semester of grad school.  How crazy is that?! It’s really not that far away.

I have a friend whose husband is just starting his PhD, they have 4 years left here!  I am excited for them and the adventure they are starting and I am sure they don’t look at their life as dreaded but man I certainly can say that if I was going to be in Logan for another 4 years all I would feel is dread!

OK OK, it’s not that bad…if I really think about it Logan isn’t THAT bad.  It would be much more tolerable though if David wasn’t in school.  I think I’ll always kinda love Logan actually because it’s where we met and had our two boys.  It’s where our life together started.  It’s all in your perspective right?

Truth is, we are so ready for him to be done with school we can taste it.  We ache and long for it.  You know the advice we always hear about living in the moment? Ya well we aren’t doing a very good job of that right now in the Sherwood home.  One of our favorite pasttimes is to talk and dream about what we’ll do after we’re free from school.

We have no idea where we’ll be with the business by then (the hope is it be able to relocate it) and his school research could be at a point that would be just silly for us to leave it.  I wish I could talk about it more but it’s kind of hush hush…I couldn’t do it justice if I wanted to anyway.  It’s biology, genetics kinda stuff.  Way over my head.  All I know is it’s a big deal and he’s feeling confident!

We are in the middle of making a major business decision that will completely change the course of our lives either way and we’re not really sure what’s going to happen.  Extra prayers and thoughts our way are always welcomed.  And I guess we’ll keep everyone updated!

Here’s to the end of the second to last semester!  Happy November and December!
