Award!

Last Tuesday I came home from visiting teaching interviews to Chris staring at the computer looking a little confused. I ask him whats going on and he tells me,"I won some kind of award" Okay "what kind of award?" apparently someone nominated him (I'm assuming the Resident director) for the John Birch award. After a few days of investigating this award is kindof a big deal only eleven people in the Country get it so I guess it is a "great honor" as one of Chris' attendings tells us. Apparently it is a two thousand dollar scholarship to be able to go to the national Obgyn confrence in New Orleans. Crazy. We still don't know how exactly he got it but we are excited and proud none the less. The only bad thing is that the conference is May 3-7. right when we were planning on going to Utah because that was Chris' Week vacation. I guess we will have to tweek a few things, and hopefully he can get a few more days vacation, so he can spend vacation with family and not in lectures:)
