Potentially exciting news for Jarom's career

I have been invited for an interview with a medium-sized pharmaceutical company in Austin, Texas. It will be on October 30. I've been casually looking for the right opportunity through some recruiters, and they found this for me. I already had a short phone interview that went really well, and since they liked my engineering background and formulation experience, they invited me down! I'm pretty excited, though I'm not jumping to any conclusions.

As you may expect, Sarah is less than enthused about the prospect of moving to Texas. She understands that it's only a faint possibility at this point, though. We are excited about getting carpet put in the two basement rooms tomorrow! The kids will have some more room to run around down there, which is always good.

Sarah & kids at Hogle Zoo

We visited Hogle Zoo together with Lana, her sister Tara and her husband Gary, and their sons today! We had lots of fun visiting the reptile and rodent exhibit. Loranna loved the snakes and the meerkat. Nathan loved the maras (rodent that looks like an oversized rabbit). He was talking to it. :) Some construction was going on (carousel and eatery being installed). The kids also loved feeding the ducks and swans in the pond.

We also have some pix of tired kids, including a progression of Loranna asleep, waking up, and fully alert! They are getting so huge. Loranna is now fully potty trained. Sarah has worked so hard to make that happen--props to her.

Jarom is in the middle of a high profile, high priority project at work that is consuming a lot of his time there. He is also super busy with his master's degree, his church calling, and following BYU football.
