Easter weekend

We made a quick trip to the valley and it happened to be Easter weekend. My youngest brother ended up in the hospital with seizures (first time) and the funny thing is that the next day was to be his Eagle scout project. Well, so we went down to help out with the project while he was in the hospital. The project was successful and he was fine, new diagnosis of epilepsy, but fine. The girls looked super cute in their Easter dresses. I had bought their dresses even before Addie was born. Hallelujah they both fit at the same time and were appropriate for Easter! We also ran by our house while in town. We decided we wanted to sell it instead of renting it out. The neighborhood just didn't give us a warm fuzzy and seeing the broken window in the house next door, the trampled on plant in our yard and all the trash in our yard, we knew pretty much instantly that we wanted to be done with it. Fortunately, we know a good realtor so now we are in the process of doing the short sale. Now, instead of me working so we can pay 2 mortgages (ours and our current landlords), the money I earn can be put towards finally paying down my student loans. Nate will have his loans paid off by the IHS loan repayment program, yippee. Hopefully in 2 years we will be free of student loans! What a thought to be completely debt free! So exciting.

Hello! I stumbled across your blog while doing research on the IHS program. Would you be willing to email me and talk about your experience with this program? I just began looking into this and would love to hear the good, bad, and the ugly!
