Christmas Card 2019

So instead of sending all you guys this Christmas card in January (like we did last year… haha!) I decided to get it out by Thanksgiving this year!

This year started by finishing Dallin’s interviews for residency training: Albuquerque, Portland, Pheonix, and Tucson! We added on another 4,624 miles to our trip. We were on the road for three months traveling a total of 19,324 miles and completing interviews at twelve Universities. The kids loved it! We took the kids coast to coast to coast to coast! It was a lot of work but we are so glad we did it. We got to spend quality and quantity time with our kids. Both of our older boys were told to write their favorite memory as a school assignment and they both wrote about different aspects of our trip.

In March, we found out that Dallin “matched” at Indiana University-Purdue University for pediatric residency training. We found a house and bought it in April! In June, we packed everything up in a big 26-foot Penske moving truck. Dallin drove that huge truck the final 1,500 miles to our new home. We bought our house as an internet purchase so we didn’t see it in person until we walked in the door. The kids were professional travelers by the time of the move and they were super good on the moving trip. However, driving out of Utah was one of the hardest things I (May Bo) has ever had to do. Even writing about it reminds me of all the emotions I had that day!

When we got to Indiana we were greeted by friendly neighbors. To say that we love it here may be an understatement. We love the house, the neighborhood, the friends, the schools, and our church! Dallin LOVES his residency program. We feel super blessed.

Unfortunately, in March Dallin’s grandma passed away and then in April Dallin’s father passed away.

In October, we welcomed Cumorah to our family. Now we are adjusting to having a newborn around and enjoying all her cuteness.

We decided to ask the kids what they are grateful for and this is what they said:

Micah: My friends, my family, Jesus, Heavenly Father, The Book of Mormons, Veterans, People who died for our country, the computer, technology, the prophets because they teach us what is right

Quentin: Mom, dad, friends, family, our home, Christmas tree, video games, Santa, scripture study because it makes me feel lots of joy, toys, church because it makes feel peaceful

Emily: Jesus Christ died, pink blankey, Jesus is alive, sleeping, eating cereal, pink fan with butterflies, pillows that don’t fight, sharing, computer

Jakey: Toys, cars, trains, mimi, momma, dada, Micah, Quentin, Emily, baby, tree, cereal, chicken, apple, bike, nose, ears, eyes, hair, ice cream, belly button, toes, Jesus

Cumorah: milk, nini, mom, blankeys, being rocked (This is what the other kids thought she was grateful for… haha!)

We miss you guys in Utah. We also miss our friends we met coast-to-coast and overseas. We hope to hear an update from you all soon!

Love, The Hubbards

Indianapolis Indiana Temple

This is our new temple! This is the Indianapolis Indiana Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dallin and I are so blessed to still have a temple close by so we can meet our weekly temple trip. It’s definitely not the same as the 8-minute drive that we use to have but it is close enough. Every time I’ve driven to the temple it reminds me of the song that says “Over the river and through the woods…” because I am very literally driving over the river and through the woods to get to the temple. HAHA! It is a beautiful drive. I wish I can show you all!

Christmas Card 2018

Hi Everyone!

This is a little belated… OK may be it is very belated but we have been relaxing and enjoying our time at home for Christmas and New Year. We were just trying to catch up on life and sleep. We have been traveling a lot since October for Dallin’s residency interviews. We decided to home school our kids for three months as we traveled coast-to-coast. Dallin is in his fourth year of medical school which means he is entering the “National Resident Matching Program“. Every fourth year medical student, who decides to pursue a practicing career in medicine, needs to complete a minimum of three year residency. These medical students apply across the country for a residency in their desired specialty. Some people interview at only a few programs while others interview at twenty five programs or more! It really depends on the specialty they choose. Dallin decided to interview at twelve pediatric residency programs. About half of the programs he applied to have a special Physician-Scientist track for MD/PhD’s. Dallin has currently finished 9 out of the 12 interviews. After the remaining interviews, we will complete our match list and submit it. The programs also rank all their applicants. March 15, 2019 is “Match Day” when graduating medical students nationwide will open their match letter to find out where they go for residency. It is a fun and stressful time filled with uncertainty and much excitement. We are so grateful for all the family and friends who have helped us these last few months! We are humbled by everyone who has message us, taken us in, helped us when we lost our luggage (… Don’t worry we eventually got it back!), given us advice, babysat the kids on the road, filled our callings at church, fed us, housed us, and kept us going.  We have traveled approximately 14,700 miles by plane and roads. We couldn’t have made it this far without you guys! Thanks so much!

Love,

The Hubbards

Dallin, May Bo, Micah (7), Quentin (5), Emily (3), and Jakey (1)
