And then...

We've just returned from West Palm Beach, FL. We worked most of the time we were there, however, we were able to take time to enjoy ourselves as well. Probably the most exciting thing we did while in West Palm Beach was watch the Leatherback Sea Turtles lay their eggs on the beach. After dark turtles begin to emerge from the beach... we were lucky enough to see three in various stages. They would crawl out of the ocean, find a nice spot, dig a hole, lay approx. 100 eggs, fill the hole and then crawl back into the ocean. It's really an amazing thing to watch.

Joe has now applied to medical school. There are 16 schools that he has applied to so far. He applied to several in California, several on the east coast and a few in between. He should receive his MCAT score tomorrow, finally, and we'll know at that point (we hope) if he's a good candidate for any of the schools he applied to. He may apply to a few additional schools, depending, of course, on his MCAT score. For those who are wondering, this is a long process, Joe probably won't even hear back from most of these schools for several months and he probably won't receive any acceptences or rejections until around Christmas.

Life is good for us. We're excited to spend a lot of time outdoors this summer - camping, waterskiing, hiking, and what not. We've got a few small camping trips planned and hopefully we'll find our way to Lagoon sometime soon (they have several new rides neither of us have been on).
