The Final Letter!



Yeah!!!! Heath got accepted to University of Colorado Denver today. We couldn't be any happier! Heath went to orientation at Portalnd last week to check out the program! It was a great experience and will help with our decision. I absolutely LOVE Denver!!! I've been there two times before. I've lived in the snow before so I know what that's like...but not with kids. Any advice? The downtown is vibrant, the mountains are incredible, the outdoor adventures are endless. I would be absolutely happy to live there. At first I was sceptical because of the snow, but after doing research....Denver gets more sun than San Diego or Miami, Florida. Around 300 days of sunshine vs. Portland's months without even a spec of sun. Heath ultimately needs to decide which program is best for him. We'll let you know!

In the meantime, take the poll to help us out! Thanks. :)

Hey I voted for ASU just because I don't want you to move - but you need to go where it's best for you. I'm excited he heard back from Denver - now you guys can pray and feel really good about your choice.

Congratulations! I totally understand the boat you're in!! Its great once you the get through the deciding part though.
I love the line you have for Denver about the downtown, the mountains and the outdoor recreation because you could probably say all the same things about Portland! Looks like those things are in your future no matter what!
Good luck on the decision process!!

Yeah Denver is where I grew up it is awesome there. You would love it, but yes it does snow there a little bit more then Utah, but always sunny. They have great lightning storms there too, I miss that.

I was a little bias with my vote...my heart have never left CO!! And that is one of the biggest misconceptions about Denver; all the snow! One day you could have a huge blizzard that could close down schools and the next day, no joke, it will be 60 degrees and the snow will be gone by the end of the day!!! And the summers, my gosh, they are pure perfection! I'm so jealous but if you do go, this means that we can come visit you when we are there to see my family! Good luck making a decision!
