Back in Gear

Well, my friends, I should apologize for the long break in blogging!

I hope to pick it back up, at least as time permits.

For now, I'll try to give a brief update of the last 7 months:

In July, we found out we were expecting our first child! This was a wonderful and humbling time, and we continue to thank God for the healthy pregnancy He's given us so far.

Our C.U.B. (cute unborn baby), due April 6th

In August, I worked at a girls Bible camp, then Jady worked at a guys Bible camp, and then we moved apartments (see previous post).

In September, we continued our move. This was a hard month, to be honest! With my morning sickness (a.k.a. all day sickness!) and exhaustion in full swing, I wasn't able to do as much as I had hoped with moving, cleaning, and getting set up. Jady was a real trooper as he continued with his own responsibilities and also took care of me!

In October, I was able to quit my job after being there for 2 years. I'm thankful to have had a job and for the opportunities and lessons learned there, but I'm so glad to be working around our home now and getting ready for the baby! Hurricane Sandy hit the week after I ended my job, so I was glad to not have to commute through the crazy aftermath of the storm.

In November, we traveled to Kentucky for my grandmother's funeral and then to Florida to spend Thanksgiving with Jady's family.

In December, we traveled back to Kentucky for Christmas with my side of the family and for a wedding of dear friends.

In January, we traveled to Florida for Jady's grandmother's funeral, Jady worked at a winter camp for the young people in the area, and we started taking Bradley Method classes for getting ready for birthing.

In February, we traveled back to Florida to attend a conference for Florida College camps and their annual Lecture series.

We are now glad to be home for more than a few weeks at a time, and we're excited to meet our little one soon!!! Pregnancy post, apartment tour, and more rejoicing in the Lord to come. Stay tuned. :)

Home sweet home
