My sister is moving far, far, away

I couldn't believe my ears as my dad told me where my brother-in-law, Gary, was thinking about going to medical school. I had only called to talk to him about my brother getting married and our travel plans to attend the wedding. the conversation went something like this... Me: "Well we want to fly but will probably end up driving because it is less expensive. Oh and I'm going to stay about a week. Its right after school gets out and I haven't been home in a while." Dad: "Ok that will be fun. Logan will be the only one around besides me and mom. So that will be great for you to spend time with him before he goes on his mission. With Britt and Gary moving, and Tyler working you won't get to see much of them." Me: "Moving? What? Where?" Dad: "Oh you haven't talked to them. He got accepted to Ross University in the Carribbean somewhere." Me: "What!! The Carribbean! You're just joking....no your serious?!" Yep, school starts at the in May and they are probably leaving right after the wedding on April 25th. I can't believe my sister will be living in tropical paradise for 16 months. Thats a long time to be gone! She said that the island is not really developed its considered more of a country, so there aren't tons of tourists or anything. She posted a picture of the island and its absolutely beautiful so I've decided we need to plan a family vacation to Dominica, thats the island they are goint to. Perrfect I've always wanted to go to the Carribbean! But.....seriously......I will miss them so much. I still can't believe they are going.

Hey so are you planning on coming down for Bryce's wedding and that's when you'll be staying for a week? Or is that later in May? Gary won't be around, but I probably will be. I'm thinking about not heading out until after Logan's farewell. That's not for sure, but it's possible. Sorry you didn't have a heads ups or anything. We barely did! Attending the open house, applying, getting interviewed and then accepted all happened under two weeks. TWO WEEKS! Talk about being unprepared. Oh and I'm all for the vacation idea. I'm sure I'll be ready to see familiar faces after a while.
