Match Day = We are moving to North Carolina!!



Thursday was the day we've been waiting for... Matt found out where he "matched" for his residency.  We were excited when he opened his envelope and saw that he matched with Duke!  In a few months we'll be on our way to Durham, North Carolina where he'll be an internal medicine resident.  We will definitely miss our friends and family in Houston... but we both loved our visit to Durham and look forward to 3 years in another part of the country.  After being in Peru and Guatemala for the last few months, North Carolina doesn't seem that far away from home!

Roy was born and raised in Durham and was a cheerleader at UNC and other than the fact that Duke is their biggest is their biggest rival, that is a great school!!! AND, maybe when we come to the beach to visit family, we can see yall! How exciting. Jack and Sam will see the Carolina beach for the first time in the summer of 2009, so be ready! Pappy can hardly wait to show his little guys what a beautiful place it is! Maybe we should bring giggi and pawpaw along too!!!
Hugs!
