Well kids, sadly Aaron didn't pass the test. Tuesday was the testing, the written tests and then the physical test. Thursday was suposed to be the Oral Board Interview but he didn't get that far. He passed all the written tests just fine, and then started the physical test. He failed the bend and twist exercise, he had to do 15 in 20 seconds. You have to squat and touch an X on the ground, then stand-up and touch an X behind you to your left, then squat, then touch the X behind you to the right and so on. So he did 17 in the 20 seconds but he kind of pulled his back midway and so the last 4 he didn't touch the wall all the way so they didn't count them, therefor he got disqualified. Luckily he can retest next month, just the physical, he doesn't have to the written again.
When he came home and told me what happened my heart just broke. He was so upset and discouraged. My poor guy felt like such a failure so he's had a rough few days. But I told him to keep his chin up and it only delays us a month which I'm sure our Grandma's are just fine to have Tatton for another month before moving. Since we were in Vegas we decided to stay the next day like planned and have some fun before heading home. We hit the pools and then took a drive around town to apartment hunt. We found a really, really nice area that we fell in love with in Henderson called Seven Hills. We found an apartment complex that we also loved. It's just perfect! So hopefully it will all work out to move in a few months there. We left Wednesday night late so that Tatton would just sleep through the night while we drove. It took us so long to get down there with Tatton stops so we decided it would be much easier if we drove at night. We ate dinner at a very good Asian buffet on our way out... oh it was so good. I knew I married Aaron for a reason, we love stuffing ourselves with Chinese food. mmm.... Anyway, it was a good little trip and looks like we'll be doing it again next month! I'll post pictures later
