weekends are amazing.

Here it is Sunday night and we are facing the reality of the glorious weekend ending and another work week beginning. We had a fantastic weekend. We met up with Tommy and Val (The Dallas Brannens) and went to the lake. They have an awesome boat and they are just a ton of fun. I have not been able to get any good sun time since our honeymoon so we went from darkies to ghosts. It was great to relax and soak up the rays.
The State Fair is in Dallas right now. Apparently it's a really big deal. The big thins year is fried butter..I can't think of anything that makes me want to gag more. Sick. Of course David will probably try it. We'll take some pictures and post them.
David and I are also trying to plan a fun summer because we both have it off. Colorado, Montana, Kanakuk and a sailing trip are in the works. It's going to be great!
The Lord is faithful. He is our Rock and Redeemer.



I guess reality has finally hit us..college was much more fun than working. I mean, we LOVE our jobs. We really do. We are so blessed to be doing things that bring us such joy. There is just a hard transition from an occasional class skip when you're just to tired, watching a lot of movies, and being constantly surrounded by your very best friends to having to work 7-4 every day. I guess the parents of the world are laughing now saying "I told you so" but it is still a transition none the less.
We booked our first flight together (minus honeymoon) to go home! We are going to be home for Thanksgiving and we are so excited. Being so far away from family has made us really miss them. We love Dallas and are growing a lot by having to solely rely on eachother. There is something about being home though...the smell of home-cooking in the oven, pies, the bed you grew up in and the people that love you so much. It is going to be a great week.
Teaching in a special ed class comes with a lot of perks. One of them being birthday parties! Friday will be my second one and they are so much fun. It's great to be able to live vicariously through a 9 yr old. Dora, princesses, crowns, pink, sparkles, Elmo..it makes you wish you could have the birthday party that a little girl gets to have. I got her a Hannah Montana microphone for her present and I am feeling so strong about it.
God is good, all the time.
"Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other just as Christ forgave you. Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love just as Christ also loved you and gave himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma."
ephesians 4:32- 5:2


the big move

Here are some pictures from our move to Dallas. It was filled with several bumps along the way but we made it, obviously!


Life in Dallas

The long weekend is definitely a much needed one for us after a long week. We are still both getting used to our new jobs (which we love). It's just a new sleep cycle, working, and getting used to things. We are still so thankful that the Lord has provided abundantly for His children. We are both doing something that we are loving. God is so good. We are looking foward to our family and friends visiting us in Dallas! There is an open invitation to anyone who would like to come!

These pictures are of David and his Booster team! The one of us is from Booster U in July.
