"...I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air..."

We are going to...
BOSTON!!! Yea!! We have been awaiting an answer as to where we are headed next and last week we finally got it. We were either going to Monterey, CA to the naval college or to Boston, MA to Massachusettes Institute of Technology (MIT). We were hoping and praying for Boston, as MIT is an amazing school and a dream for an engineer like my husband. Also, we both were excited about the prospect of all that Boston has to offer, historically and otherwise. Technically, MIT is in Cambridge, which neighbors Boston. Anyhow, we are SUPER excited and will be moving there in about 2 months in order for Carl to start his Masters program for the Navy. Another great thing is that we will be there for around 3 years, which may be the longest we ever stay anywhere! We wonder if our baby boy, who will learn to talk there, will pick up their accent...So Praise the Lord for allowing us to go there and allowing Carl to get into MIT. What a privilege. Speaking of praises and prayers--if you remember, please pray for us to find a good church there soon after arriving. Thanks!
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
