Match Day

Today was the long-awaited Match Day, where all of the 4th-year medical students find out where they are going for residency. We have looked forward to this day for a long time now, really excited about the certainty that it would bring. It is hard for me to believe that it's already here--it really does not feel like it's been 4 years since we moved to Dallas and Clint started medical school....but I digress. The important information is that Clint matched at his first-choice program--UT Southwestern here in Dallas! Yep, we are staying put. :) We are all very excited about staying in Dallas and about the incredible training he will receive here. And Charlie and I are SO proud of Clint for all of his hard work. What an accomplishment! We had another bit of good news today as well--my brother, Sam, matched at UT Southwestern as well, so he and Audra as headed to Dallas after the honeymoon. We are SOOOOOO excited to have them here. I can hardly believe it!

Here we are at Match Day. Charlie was a bit overwhelmed with all of the excitement and not on his best behavior. He is very active lately and not loving situations where we don't let him get down and crawl (notice his very mad face :).
Still trying to force his way down...
Pensive, waiting for the results...
Charlie and Holden (the son of one of Clint's good friends) had so much fun playing together. They were very happy to get down and crawl. Charlie resembled a little monkey that had been cooped up too long (and by too long, I mean about 10 minutes :).

After the match, we took Charlie out to feed ducks and relax. He loved it!

We had to get some swings in, of course. :)
Congrats to Clint, Sam, and all the others who matched today. We are very proud of you all!
