He Got IT!!

That's right folks, Brad got the GA (graduate assistantship) he wanted. He'll be a mentor for the international students. The glory of this GA is that it is 10 hours a week, four of which are study hall hours where Brad can do his homework too. It'll cover a large portion (if not all of tuition) plus a stipend to live on AND (here's the kicker) a new laptop!!
Brad is super excited and so am I. I'm already day dreaming about what it will be like to have my husband back. This year has been super duper quadruple hard with Brad trying to work and go to school and do church stuff not to mention be a dad and husband. He'll cut his work hours in half and we'll be way better off! Wahoo!! Now, if we can just make it through August, the glory will begin... I hope time flies!!!
(p.s. less debt for tuition means the sooner we'll pay off tuition debt which means homeownership just got closer, ah the dreaming and scheming continues!)
