I've decided to join the rest of the world and start "blogging". It's been kind of fun to create a mini-website devoted soley to ME (and joe)! I figured now is the best time to figure out how to maintain a blog, because in a year (hopefully) we'll be moving far, far away. Right now, however, Joe and I are excited to enjoy our first school free summer since we got married. We're even thinking about another fun trip (since it'll be the last of it's kind for about 10 years).

Joe has already began the long arduous process of applying to medical school even though he won't begin submitting applications until June 1. We should receive the scores from his MCAT (medical school entrance test) on or around June 15 at which time we will have a better idea of which schools he is well suited for admissions to. Some of the schools we have considered are UCLA, UCSF, Dartmouth, Tulane, Duke, Mayo Clinic, Ohio State and many, many others. We will keep you updated as aplications are turned in, requests for more information are received and hopefully (in about 9 months) acceptances received!

Unfortunately, my life is no where near as fun to talk about as Joe's right now. I work 30-40 hours a week, read books, work out at the Field House and do whatever else come's up. Which, for those of you who wonder regularly, does not currently include getting pregnant. I can, however, refer you to several cute babies if you need something to ogle (consider: Madison Spilker, McKenzie Atkin, and many, many Johnstun/Barrett/Jack babies). And, if that doesn't satisfy you ask Joe - he'll descibe the physiology of babies, pregnancy and the like and probably bore you to death while he's at it!

So, for anyone out there interested in what's going on in our lives, check back periodically for more news and information from Heidi & Joe Atkin.
