Great things are happening!

So, we've still got a lot to do before we are ready to move to Scotland... in 43 DAYS!! But things are moving along nicely so I thought I'd give an update.
First of all, we found out TODAY that Steven received a Scholarship from RSAMD. We are THRILLED about this! They also said that since Steven will be a Scholarship student that he will be expected to participate in certain events that will enhance both his and the academy's profile and reputation. So, this will mean only good things for his resume and for our budget!
Next, we might have found a flat to live in! Its a really nice flat, reasonably priced, in a nice area. We had some friends go check it out for us and they said that it was even nicer looking in person then the pictures show and that its surprisingly big. Its close to grocery stores, banks, subways, and a Primary School that Rhys could go to. All in all, its just what we need. We're working with the Realtor now, but hopefully we'll be able to put a down a holding deposit so that it can be ours. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
We've also found a Storage Unit to store the few belonging that we are going to keep here in Cedar City. Its a nice size, 8X10, and its only $20 a month to rent. I'm pretty happy about it. Its one of the things that has been on my mind to get, so I'm happy to check that one off my list. I'm starting to pack up the apartment, so now we can just start loading up the storage unit as we go. It will be a lot less we'll have to do all at once.
We're still working on Visa's, but its a continual process. Hopefully it will be something that I can report on soon.
We're just trying to stay positive and enjoy our last few weeks here in the United States. =)
