On August 18th Jason and I celebrated our 1st anniversary!!!!!!! We had so much fun reflecting on our first year of marriage...funny memories, high's, low's, lessons learned, etc. We also looked to the future and talked about where we'd like to be in 5 or so years. (Our parents will be happy to know that yes, babies are in that time frame). But the night was really special. We kicked it off with dinner at Cuba Libre, then went home and Jason had a whole deal set up. We watched our wedding ceremony DVD and exchanged gifts/letters. And then Jason proceeded to sing me a song he wrote for me! It was so sweet! Of course, I wasn't allowed to look at him while he sang it because he was too nervous...haha. He is hilarious. It was awesome though and I am excited for the many years we have ahead of us!!
In other news, there has been A LOT going on here lately. August 22nd was my last day working at CPS. It is weird to me that I don't work there anymore. When I left the office on Friday I didn't feel overly sad or overly excited that I was leaving. I just felt that I was moving on and that this was the next step in my life. I am thankful for that experience and all of the lessons I learned. I will miss my kiddos and co-workers, but I am excited to be a student again. I really feel that I have made the right decision to go to school full time. At times, I really feeling guilty or I was telling myself that I was a quitter for not hanging in there at CPS, but I know God has affirmed me several different times of this next step and I am grateful for that.
I will post again soon of my school experience (yesterday was my first day) once I've gone to all of my classest this week! I know I've been a slacker in the blog world lately, but the ending of a job, starting school, 1st year anniversary, and moving apts has kept us busy....Oh yea, and I will post some pics from the annual Sudan Family reunion we had on 2 weeks ago! adios!
