Well, so much has happened in the past year that I thought a new post was warranted.

Well, so much has happened in the past year that I thought a new post was warranted. Most recently, Andy accepted a job teaching High School math at Howard, which is where he REALLY wanted to be, so that is wonderful news. I am really excited for him to start in August. Howard is where our neighborhood and a lot of the surrounding neighborhoods are zoned for, so it will be really neat to be more involved in the community in that way. I can't wait to help him prepare his classroom and tag along to after-school events and hear about all his experiences! He's going to be an amazing teacher. I have no doubt about that.

In February, I started a new job with CSM. I am doing basically what I did before, but on a part-time basis because [new thing #3] we have a baby on the way! He or she should be arriving at the end of the summer, within weeks of Andy starting his new job. Needless to say, things are going to be a little crazy at our place this fall, but we are SO excited. For all of it. I've been tracking my pregnancy, etc. at which will basically be our family scrapbook from here on out, but I'll probably continue posting random thoughts and nonsense on here every few months/whenever the heck I feel like it.

As for the next 2-3 months, before the whirlwind begins, well lately I have gotten into the habit of repeating the phrase "These are the last days of our youth!" over and over again to Andy/myself. Because, let's be honest, times are a little scary and money is a little tight and the future is a whole lot unpredictable. Neither one of us really knows what life will be like in the fall, so we might as well sit back and enjoy the ride there, eh?
