New Possibilities

I applied for a position and have gone through two sets of questionnaires and I have a phone interview on Saturday at 3:00. I am super excited about this position but I am extremely nervous about the interview. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated! Not only would this job be perfect for my type of personality, but it would be a great place to work as well as people to work for!

On another note, Pat is so close to finishing his BA!!!! I couldn't be more proud of him. He has done such an amazing job with school, family, work, and everything else life has thrown our way. He is my hero! He graduates in May with his BA and will possibly be going for his MBA immediately afterwards. He is still undecided on that.
I finish in June and I am SOOO happy! I feel like these last few years we have accomplished so much, but we couldn't have done it without God by our side! I have learned so much and feel like I have grown so much spiritually and mentally. I can't wait to see what God has in store for us this upcoming year. I am so excited!!!

Declan's head is looking worse (it's a HUGE blue bruise now) but the swelling has gone down so there is no longer a bump on his forhead. He's such a trooper. He told me that he was "very brave" for letting the nurse put an ice pack on his head :o) We are signing him up to play t-ball this spring/summer. A friend of ours is going to coach the team and Cohen (their son) will be on the team with Declan. He seems excited about it now, but we'll see. He still talks about wanting to do gymnastics, which he loved, but there aren't too many places out by us that offer that. Anyway, that's our life at the moment!

Today it happened

While out shopping, I got a phone call from Declan's school saying that he had an accident. At first I thought they meant in his pants, but they didn't. He was running into the bathroom and ran smack into another kid's head. He has a HUGE goose egg on his head, poor guy. They said he cried and they put some ice on it, they also had their nurse look at it. His teacher said that this looks good compared to what it looked like when it first happened. Here are some pictures of his first school related injury :(

It's that time of year again

It's the new year, once again, and even though I am a little behind I feel the need to list my 2011 goals. So here they are for your viewing pleasure...I know you're all just dying to know what they are:

* I want to give more to people that are in need whether it be financial, time, or material things

* I want to tithe 3% more than we did last year

* I want to lose 30-50 pounds this year

* Once I graduate I am going to put ALOT more effort into my photography business

* I want to go on a vacation with my family

* I want to go visit my brother and sister in law in CA

I know it seems pretty typical, but I am one of those people that always makes the resolutions and never seems to be able to stick to them. So far this year, we have been able to bless 3 different families in need with clothing for their children and I've lost about 3 pounds since the end of December. So far, so good. I will try to keep updating as much as I can remember to do so. I hope you all have a blessed new year, I anxiously await to see what God has in store for us this year!
