There are lots of NEW things happening!
1. We are living in a NEW place. We moved from the ghetto! Jacob had a classmate that decided to go to a different school. He needed to sell his contract so he wouldn't get stuck paying for it all year. Lucky for us we were able to get out of our place by paying two months rent. We did not feel we had the money to do this, but when his friend said he would pay the fee, we were all over it. We packed up our stuff and within 2 weeks we were in our NEW place. It is a super cute duplex. It has 3 bedrooms and it is in a cul-de-sac. It is fairly NEW and we love living here. We had been looking at lots of town homes and duplexes so we could move somewhere great once our contract was up and when this offer came we couldn't pass it up. The price was right and it has so many other great things about it.
2. Well because we have a NEW home, we now have a NEW ward. There are so many young couples and families. I have met a few and I can't wait to meet more. I am really trying to get out of my comfort zone and meet NEW people. I get nervous doing things by myself, but I went to the relief society activity last night and I met more awesome women. I was so happy I went. We have only been in the ward for 2 sundays now, so we don't have callings yet, but I'm sure we will soon. We are looking forward to being in the NEW ward and getting to meet NEW people. Our church building is in the same parking lot as the brand NEW temple. It is so wonderful see the temple every time we go to church.
3. Last, but not least, I have a NEW job! I have been working with kids with emotional and behavioral problems since the beginning of the year I was really enjoying it until this summer. I was really excited to be a group leader, but things just weren't working out. I had a tough bunch of kids and I was ready to try something new. So i quit. I was really nervous about quitting because I didn't know how long it would be until I had another job and it is scary to not have money coming in regularly. I had signed up on care.com hoping I could find a nanny job. Well I did and the job is awesome! I will be the nanny for 2 kiddos a 10 year old boy and 11 year old girl. I met them on wednesday and they were so wonderful. I wasn't sure if this job would work out during the school year because the kids would be going back to school and I need a full time job, but they said they would still use me full time during the year to help run errands. The pay is great and I absolutely loved the kids after meeting them. It was truly a blessing to find this job and I am so very grateful and excited for it.
