That next morning, April 16th we left early!!! We were full of excitement, questions, and the thought that everything could change quickly. We were picked up that afternoon and drove to Mount Hermon in Santa Cruz,CA. Mount Hermon is impressive, it just is. They do everything to exceed your expectations. Andy had interviews all afternoon. I decided I would nap a half hour to rest from the jet lag and then explore. 3 hours later I was still in bed. That night we went out with a couple that had worked for Kidder and gave us the lowdown on the past 5-10 years. It was overwhelming and exciting to hear about the possibilities that laid in what they described as, ' the most beautiful place.' We came back to our room and Andy immediately crashed from an exhausting process of all day interviews and info. We got up really early the next morning (still on Wisconsin time) and took a hike. We talked and prayed and prepared for our drive to Kidder. It was a 6 hour drive with the person who was interviewing us and would potentially be Andy's boss, not intimidating at all... They talked while I tried to disappear from the process. When we drove into Kidder to say our hearts where taken back is an understatement. It truly is a breathtaking spot. Apple orchards with horses in them, with mountains and streams as the back drop. I think now a little of us fell in love right then. Who wouldn't want to raise their kids in that kind of place?
