Taking a break

I was thinking tonight after going to church that I really want to get closer to God. I truly believe that he has greater things for us, for our church, for our city, and for our country. I believe that God is good and that only he has the power to change our circumstances. I completely trust him, but I want to work on being completely obedient to him. So, over the next week, I will not be on facebook in order to allow myself more time to read the Word of God, and to pray and really focus on our future and what God has in store for us. I am excited, nervous, and a little scared at what is coming in our near future because I fully believe that it's bigger than even Pat or I can imagine. Please pray for us on this next journey in our life and that we follow the path that God has laid out for us!

For those of you that are unaware

For those of you who haven't heard Pat lost his job today so he is on the hunt. He will have a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with an emphasis in Human Relations. So, if any of you know of a job opening up, we'd be more than happy to know about it. We are not just looking in MO, but we're willing to move anywhere that God wants us. Please keep our family in your prayers. Thank you all so much!!!

Week 4

This week is the "recovery" week of P90x but so far, I feel like I've been working just as hard as the last three weeks. I am so excited to say that I have lost exactly 11 pounds in just three weeks! I am well on the way to my goal. I have been slacking in the healthy eating department. I have not been eating horribly but I've had some snacks here and there.

On another note, I went in to talk to my advisor the other day and instead of taking one class this cluster and one class next cluster to finish up my degree, I should just wait and take them together both over the summer. This way my grants will go towards my tuition instead of me having to pay for both classes out of pocket. So, I will be taking 3 months off and then graduating at the end of September! Pat on the other hand is finished in a VERY short 2 weeks! His last class for his BA degree is March 24th and then he'll be a college graduate...sort of. The commencement ceremony is not until May 14th, but either way, he's finished with classes!

We decided not to put Alaina in preschool this next school year. I'm going to keep her home with me for one more year and then she'll go to pre-kindergarten in the fall of next year.

Other than that, nothing's really new or different, just the same ol' same ol'
