jaren got accepted into school :) woot woot! originally our plan was for him to attend salt lake community college. but come to find out, there mortuary science program isn't accredited yet! and they're having a hard time getting it. i know this because my father-in-law (who's been in the mortuary industry for 30+ years and also interviewed at slcc to be one of the professors for the mortuary science program) has been in contact with the program director there. he's been telling them they're missing classes, and FINALLY they believed him. so instead we're going a different route. he'll be going through arapahoe community college out of littleton colorado. they've been accredited for a quite a few years and also offer online classes for everything that he'll need to take. he'll have to go to colorado twice (2 days in the fall semester and 5 days in the spring semester) to do the lab work, but that won't be a big deal.  my father-in-law also works with 2 people who graduated from there and they liked there program and he thinks they know a know a lot more then the people he works with that are attending slcc ;) lol. this is pretty darn exciting for us.
