Isn't this SUCH a cool picture of Central Park?
Yesterday Nate left for NYC to attend an orientation (with his BFF, Josh Probert) for incoming students this fall. He had an interview with the Program Coordinator of the Music School (the same lady he met with when we went to NYC last November to look at the school) this morning. He called me afterward to inform me that we are receiving a very generous financial aide package, which includes his tuition and a stipend that will pay for our housing, which will be renewable every year. I wanted to cry when he told me. This is a direct answer to our prayers, and we couldn't feel more blessed and loved by our Heavenly Father. We are so grateful that we won't have to go into a tremendous amount of debt to do this. To top things off, we also found out that the lady he met with, the Program Coordinator, has asked Nate to be her assistant. wow!! I honestly could not believe it. I guess she is really excited about the direction that Nate wants to go with his music and teaching, and wants to work with him on it. She does early child hood development music, and Nate told her we have two little boys, and she is so excited to work with Asher. It all just sounds too good to be true, and I really don't think that we could have asked for anything more. It is all very humbling. It is clear that this is where Heavenly Father wants us to go... it's almost like he is shoving us to NY!
So, needless to say, we are now 100% positive that we will be moving to NYC at the end of the summer. crazy!! But we already have a couple of LDS contacts back there that have answered a lot of questions, and have been so helpful, and will continue to be. They have also helped me get way more excited, and feel a little bit more comfortable at the thought of raising kids in NY. If we don't get into student housing, I feel like we will have the help that we need to find "affordable" housing in a good area, so the whole thing is a lot less overwhelming.
Just wanted to share our exciting news!
