Ukraine 2010!

So I have to take a moment and announce Chase's exciting news! He got accepted to do an externship in Kiev, Ukraine next Spring/Summer for Baker & McKenzie, a huge international law firm. He's so stoked to return to his mission and to speak Russian once again. He'll be gone for approximately 5-6 weeks and then hopefully will return to complete another externship possibly in DC. What will I be doing while he's away? Working :(, but at least it will keep me busy!

More exciting news...for one of his law classes Chase had to go through two mock interviews Wednesday night with two different companies to prepare him for future interviews after law school. He was super nervous, but walked away with high marks! Both interviewers were very impressed; one was especially impressed with his resume and the experience he has already had!! He said it was perfect for his future career goals. It makes us both excited for the opportunities he will hopefully have available to him after law school.

Here's a little flashback to Chase's mission--a peak at what Chase has to look forward to this summer!

I told you that going to BYU would open up doors only available at BYU. I am so full of myself right now! Baker and McKenzie is an awesome firm. I have only respected the people who have gone there for internships over the past couple of years. And from what I know, they are fairly discriminating (in a good way) so Chase must have impressed them very much. He definitely belongs with the big dogs!
