Some Great News!!

No people I'm not pregnant let's just get that out of the way right now :)  But, we do have some really great news to share. This. . .


 Nose Picking. . . 

 Tent building . . .
(in the family room no less!)

 Lego Loving. . . 

 Hardcore Hiking. . .

Super cute 
(I kind of like this picture, so I threw it in there)


dude just accepted his first "real man" job (I like to call it that because it sounds cool)!!!!! He'll be working full-time as a designer at a advertising/design firm called Axis 41 up in SLC. We are seriously so excited and relieved that it all finally came together. This summer has been a tough one for us, we've learned a lot about patience and faith through this whole job hunting battle, but we are grateful that everything always has a way of working out in the way that it needs to. Thank you to everyone for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers, you don't know how much we appreciate it.

For now we will be staying in our apartment here in Provo because I have to be on campus to teach and we only have one car, but we'll probably end up moving further north in either December or the end of the school year.

In other news, teaching has gone great so far this semester. I was super nervous for the first week, but now that I have gotten to know my class it's really been more fun than anything else! I teach a math class that Elementary Ed. majors have to take, so all of my students are girls. I honestly feel more like their friend than their teacher because I'm only a few years older than most of them, but I think I've done a pretty good job in helping them learn the concepts they need to while keeping class enjoyable at the same time.

Anyway, just wanted to fill everybody in on the good news! :)

I am so happy for you guys. Jared is lucky to have a wife who loves him so much, and has a gift for blogging : ) I love it when people get real jobs! Triple bonus points for getting one in his major! Love it when college actually gets you where you wanted to be.

Much Love,

Erin

Oh and PS we actually did just have a baby. She's only a couple weeks old and we are head over heels in love with her. Miss you much guys. I hope we can get together at some point. Best Wishes!
