8 Months

     Today we have been married for 8 months!  I cannot believe how fast the time has gone.  My life has changed in so many ways and I could not be happier.  It has been a fun adventure and it just keeps getting better.  I am excited to see what the next 8 months has in store for us.

This past weekend we went to the an ethnic festival.  They served food from all over world.  It was neat to see people from so many different cultures.  Jacob got food from Turkey and I got food from Samoa and then we went to France and ate crepes.

White Coat

     Jacob's white coat ceremony was on Saturday.  I am so proud of him and all of his hard work in school.  He is so dedicated to his learning and such a hard worker.  He amazes me.   He has done great and it makes me so happy to see him succeed.  His parents came down and came with us to the ceremony.  It was fun to see them.  Afterwards we came back to our place and made our favorite salad.          
     The weather here has been insanely hot this summer.  Over 100 almost everyday.  It finally cooled down a little bit (maybe to like 80) saturday night so we were able to go out and play ladder ball, one of our favorite games, and spend some time together.  It was a wonderful day.

A little update

     I have started at my new job.  It has been a lot of fun.  I am a nanny for two kids.  One has been away at camp since I started so it has just been me and William.  He is 10 and we have had lots of fun going to the pool, movies, arcade, museum, and lots of other fun adventures.  We even road go karts one day.
     Jacob had a two week break from school at the end of July.  We were able to spend a few days together before I started my new job.  We went to his parents house and celebrated a belated birthday for him.  He was so busy with school when his birthday came, so we just decided to wait until he had a break.  We ate dinner and played games with them and we stayed the night.  They live in St. Joseph, about an hour away so it is nice that we get to see them every once in a while. 
     We've had a few other adventures that we've squeezed in between all the studying and work.  We saw the new batman movie.  We both really enjoyed it.  I finally finished my online class and can now say that I have officially graduated from BYU!  It feels so great to have that done.  I have absolutely loved watching the olympics.  I love cheering for the USA.  We love Tuesday nights at buffalo wild wings for $.50 cents wings and we've recently started watching Boy Meets World starting from season 1 and we are now on season 3.  It's such a great show!
     It's been almost 8 months that we have been married and lived in Missouri.  Time has gone by so fast.  It has been a crazy fun adventure and I have learned so much!
