Thank you all so very much for all your phone calls and emails to wish Chad luck on his Engineer tests. All the extra prayers and his hard work paid off. We found out yesterday that he finished #1 in the class! Not only is he in the top spot, but he beat everyone else by 4 points! He will officially be promoted on August 25th at a ceremony in Salt Lake. We are very proud of him and we just pray he doesn't wreck one of the fire trucks!!!!
Way to go Chad!!!!!

Well, it has been a very stressful month at the Doyle house. Chad has been going through Engineer school and we can finally see the end in site! He has been taking major tests everyday this week and will take his State certification test on Monday. He will then interview with the board and then, with luck, will be promoted the end of August. We are all very proud of him and grateful for how hard he works for us. He never complains about working extra shifts and spends all his extra time studying so he can get this promotion. He is such a good husband and dad... we are very lucky to have him!
Oakley went to Shriners on Monday to have a clinic appointment with her surgeon. The valgus in her knee is getting worse so she is scheduled, for now, to have a plate put in her knee next June. They have decided to do the surgery during the summer as she will not be able to wear her leg for at least 2 weeks and will need to be on crutches, so they dont want her to have to be in school and deal with that. We are hoping it doesnt get worse any faster, but for now that is the plan. We will go back to Shriners on Monday when she will be casted for her new leg. She has chosen a really cute pink and brown paisley material for this new one. We will post pictures as soon as it is ready.
That is all that is new in our fam right now. Again, I will keep trying to update every now and again, but I make no promises!
Love you all!!!
