In other exciting news...our baby girl is expecting her first cousin in just two short weeks! My brother Joe and his wife Belinda are about to have a little BOY and it looks like he will arrive soon. We can't wait for our new nephew. I know that these little cousins will be great friends and I can't wait for them to grow up together. Just wish we didn't all live so far apart. It's been an exciting year so far and we continue to be thankful for all of God's blessings.
Thanks for checking in. More to come next week!

Life continues to move along at a rapid rate on campus. This is the 6th week of classes already this semester. I've been feeling so good, life hasn't changed a whole lot yet. We're JUST starting to think about the baby room (which is currently the "storage room" for student's things, Nav Night sound equipment, etc), baby furniture, what kind of crib and stroller and all those other good things that babies need! It's a little overwhelming, to be honest... But so exciting at the same time.
Honestly, I think recently the thing I have been the most amazed by is the fact that as I go about my normal day to day activities, not even having to think about it (though as I'm sure you can tell, I think about her all the time!), she continues to grow and develop and be shaped into the little person that God has and is designing her to be. I have absolutely no control over it. I can't change a thing. (besides taking care of myself, of course!) God is in complete control of her every moment. It brings Psalm 139 to life in a whole new way...

I am really learning to trust in God's ways in a new way...knowing that what He gives us is His absolute best, even when it doesn't always feel the best to us at the time. He is committed to making me like Him...
Lord, thanks for your goodness and the good gifts that you give... We're so excited for this little July gift that is on it's way!
