I apologize that I haven't really kept this blog updated with stuff and Rory and me. It seems to be mostly focused on what Carter is up to. So I thought I'd have a little post about Rory. :)

Rory has been working hard to get certified as an actuary. He spends a lot of his free time studying hard. I think I mentioned it in an earlier post, but a couple months ago Rory passed his 4th test! Many people say that is the hardest one so we were ecstatic! Not only did he pass it, but it was his first try for that one too. Other people from his office took the test as well and Rory was the only one who passed. Some of the other people were taking it for the 2nd or 3rd time. These tests are NOT easy.

Right now Rory is working on his independent study course. He has to do 8 different sections and he has a test after the first five and then at the end. He's almost done with the first four sections. He's been working hard to get them done fast so he can start studying for his last big test that he wants to take in March. He usually spends about 6 months studying for each test so he's trying to work fast! :)

Rory is one of the most self-motivated people I know. I don't know anyone else who is so diligent about studying when they aren't in a class that makes them stay on top of it. I'm so proud of him and all that he has accomplished so far. He is so close to being a certified ASA (Associate of the Society of Actuaries)!

This September Carrie Underwood and Wicked are coming to Louisville. Two things that I would really like to see. For my birthday Rory got us tickets to Carrie! I was so excited to get them! She has been one of my favorite artists since she was first on American Idol and I have never seen her in concert so I can't wait! Rory also knew I wanted to see Wicked, but I knew that would be a lot to get both things for my birthday. Since I already had tickets to Carrie then I didn't expect to see Wicked. I was happy enough to just be going to one of them. Rory came home 3 days before I did from our trip to Utah. He had to get back to work so he couldn't stay any longer. When I got home Rory had gotten me a present. I wasn't expecting that! I was even more shocked to find out that they were tickets to see Wicked!!! It was the best surprise ever! I really hadn't said much about Wicked, but Rory knew how much I wanted to go. Isn't he the best?! :) I love you Rory!
