Oregon, Here the Reed's Come!


PACIFIC UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF OPTOMETRY...we are on our way!!! So, for those who are unfamiliar with this story...last fall, Brandon and I decided to switch from premed to preoptometry...we also decided to take a long shot at applying a year early, and to only ONE school. So, right before Brandon's interview at the ONE school we decided we were interested in this time around, we found out that the school had filled it's Fall 2008 class, but that they were still interviewing for their alternate list. With flights booked, hotel reservations, etc. in place, we decided he would interview anyway. It's been a month now since Brandon interviewed out at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon, but today, we recieved a phone call from the head of admissions telling us that they had ranked their alternate list, Brandon was number ONE on the list and they were prepared to offer him a spot in their FALL 2008 class of Optometry students!!! Talk about unexpected! We are so excited, and I just want to say, BRANDON YOU ARE THE BOMB!!! (ha ha ha!)

I love how the Lord's plan for us is sometimes different than our own plan--and He definitely paves the way for things to work the way He wants! Anyway, congratulations!! I agree Jenny, Brandon you're da bomb!!
