California, here we come!

Dave finally got the "official" phone offer from Aerospace yesterday, FedEx should bring the papers to sign soon. He's going to start June 11th for a 6-week internship. This came as quite a surprise, as we weren't really planning on internships this summer. But a guy from the company contacted him and told him they were still interested in having him come work there (they made an offer after we graduated MIT in 2004). Dave told him he's not graduating until next year, so the guy asked if he'd be interested in doing an internship. After talking it over, we decided it would be a good thing to do, so Dave could get a feel for whether he would like to actually work there. Seeing as CA is such an expensive place to live, we thought it would be a good idea to try it out and see how we like it before committing to move there. They are actually paying him really well for the 6 weeks, too, so it's a good way to add to our savings for moving next year. The kids and I are getting back from Germany July 2nd, we'll spend the night at an airport hotel and then fly out to CA on the 3rd. It'll be a bit crazy, but oh well. Should be a fun summer! :o)
