After my last post, Clayton brought to my attention that I had inadvertently lied. At that point in time, Clay had been accepted to two schools: University of Colorado and Georgia State University. We had already decided on CU, so I had completely pushed GSU out of my mind. However now we can add University of Nevada-Las Vegas(UNLV) to the list as well. We have now been accepted to 3 schools which makes Clayton feel pretty good. We are still planning on going to Colorado, though. The only school that would even make us reconsider at this point is the University of Utah. However school starts in about a month there, so we are not holding our breaths.

In other news...I'm graduating from BYU. Well sort of. I am walking this semester. I will still have 8 credits to finish up independent study, but that shouldn't take too long. But if you want to come and support, my convocation is on Friday, April 24, at 2 o'clock in the Smith Fieldhouse.

We have an apartment

Amber and I took a speedy trip to Denver this weekend to find an apartment. We signed on an apartment in Parker. Here is a link to what it looks like.

By the way that is not what our furniture looks like.

Apartment hunting

For those of you who haven't heard, we've decided on going to the University of Colorado-Denver for graduate school. Aside from it being the only place that we were actually accepted, it is also the best fit for us. While he was interviewing there, Clayton was very impressed with the facilities and said "It just feels right." We will be moving our stuff around the first of May, but will come back for a few more weeks so Clayton can work. School starts June 1st, and Clayton is ready to be a full time student again.

This weekend we are taking a trip to Denver to find a place to live. If anyone has suggestions as to what the "safe" areas of Denver are, it would be much appreciated. Right now we are looking at the Parker area and have appointments with a few of the apartments on Friday. Up until this point, it doesn't feel real. I can't believe we'll be leaving Provo and moving on to Denver in about a month. I'm sure once we find a place to live it will become more real.

I've include the link to a few of the apartments we're looking at, if you're interested:
