The last 4 years have been leading to this day. Match day is the most intense, emotionally draining, and stressful but wonderful day in medical school. All the hard work, long hours and countless sleepless nights have lead up to one envelope that you open with all the other medical students at the exact same time all across the nation. Josh had made his rank list and at the top was Mayo in Rochester Minnesota. And I'm EXTREMELY excited to announce that my hard working, dedicated, extremely smart husband got what he had been working so hard to get. We are moving to Rochester Minnesota to start a residency in radiology. Before we go to Rochester Josh has to do a transitional year. Most people don't understand what that is. It is like being an intern before you start your residency. Not all spoecialites have to do this, but radiology is one that does.
Josh's School! Go Texas Tech
Match Day is a big deal across the nation. Schools spend the previous week partying. Every night there was a fun event and dinner for us to attend.
Saturday: Dinner at El Paso Country Club. It was delicious and so fun to see great friends who I haven't seen for awhile. It was fun to get dressed up and eat in such a beautiful atmosphere.
Tuesday: Family bowling. Evelyn wanted to play so bad. Poor girl wants to be older then she is.
Wednesday: Park Day and Chick Fil A....and Janet flew into town
Thursday: Dinner at Carlos and Mickeys
Friday: MATCH DAY and luncheon

We arrived at 9:15 Friday morning to snap a few pics. We were soooo happy Grandma Janet could be in town for this momentous occasion!
Despite what this picture looks like Evelyn was not a happy camper. We now know she was sick :(
The school had treats laid out for the students.

Yes I was letting Evelyn watch Frozen while we waited.
The BIG moment!

What good friends.
So Proud of this guy!
After all was said and done we were pretty tired. I have never been so excited for one single event. We had a great dinner with Janet at Leo's that night then we all went home to relax...and rightfully so :)
