Hello! This last weekend Nate and I had the pleasure of taking the weekend off (something which rarely happens anymore) and heading to the South for Ali's wedding. Aside from the fact that it was obviously nice to get away for a couple days, it was also nice because we were able to see family members of Nate's side that not only I hadn't met yet, but also that Nate rarely gets to see himself!

Dave and Ali's wedding was a personal and cute affair and it's pleasing to see people who really want God to be a part of their life together.

While we split the drive up on the way down, we drove a grueling 12 hours yesterday. It was awesome being with family, but it also made coming home that much more painful; it's not easy living over five hours away from our families.

We look forward to the holidays when we will be able to again spend time with one another.

Missing all of you!

Hi! This week has been a busy week for us. As you can tell from Nate's previous post, he's started school and he definitely has a big course load. But I'm confident he can handle it. He's looking into working at one (or a couple?) of the campus dining locations on campus in terms of a part time job, and that will help us out financially - especially since his paid internship just ended. Lately I've been spending my free time at Eastern; I've really missed it and it is no secret that 'the real world' can be a pretty rude place... It's nice to come back to my college coffee shop and surf the internet and drink a nice beverage while my husband reads and studies for class. It's sort of a way of satisfying nostalgia, really.

On a different note, we had my second obgyn appt. today. The doctor tried to let us hear the heartbeat, but she couldn't find it, which made us concerned. So she pulled out the sonogram machine and got us a picture of the baby - and everyone laughed because it was literally DANCING all around. Like a fish out of water. SO WEIRD. With every sonogram and doctor appointment everything gets a bit more real.

We're in the process of making a few big changes, but we are unable to elaborate on them at this time. Suffice it to say that we can use all the positive thoughts and prayers you can spare for us.

On a lighter note, Nate's sister's wedding is coming up. We're going to be driving down south later this month.

School and Pregnancy

So, school started. Tough schedule, a lot of reading, but I'm feeling good about the semester in general. Typh's OBGYN appointment is on Thursday and we have already had our first ultrasound. Pretty exciting stuff. It's funny to think that my Bible professor, Dr. Mosser, will be having his 6th child in March, when we're having our first child that same month. We will be in touch- Nate
