The Times They Are A-Changin'

I cannot believe that our last blog post was all the way back in January! So much has happened since then and I will try my very best to fill you in on our life (and I'll include pictures!)

Jason has been at his new job now for about 5 months and absolutely loves it! Things have slowed down a bit now that it's summer but he is excited to start a new school year in his new position. We are truly blessed that he was selected for this job!

Jason and I both graduated in May, Jason with his master of Divinity Degree and I with my bachelors of science degree!! We are so excited to be done with school and be able to experience marriage without night classes :-) Here are a couple pictures from our graduations:

We also moved into a new house since my last post! We are renting a cute, little two bedroom house in Pomona. We LOVE it here and really think it's starting to feel like home. It's so fun having an extra bedroom in case people come to stay, which we have actually already had our first guests: my mom and Marky Mark! It was so fun having them here. Here are a few pictures of the new house (keep in mind, it's a work in progress!):

Guest Bedroom!

Another transition that I am going through is the end of my job for the past two and half years. I have been lucky enough to be the nanny of the two sweetest girls in the world. Since Violet is starting preschool in the fall, there is no need for me anymore. The little girls outgrew me! I miss them so much but am thankful for the time I had with them. I'm also looking forward to next chapter in my life, a new career! I've applied for many-a-job but have yet to hear back from a single one.

Something else you might be interested in are some health changes that are going on. I, in my incredible clumsiness, tripped off a curb and fractured two bones AND tore the ligaments. I'm trying to think of a better story to how I got hurt, so if you think of one, let me know. So, it's no walking for 6 weeks for me. What a start to my summer break, right? Jason is also experiencing some health stuff. He has been experiencing some more heart episodes in the past few weeks. We are in the process of getting a doctors appointment and try to figure out what is going on! In the meantime we have decided to limit Jason's driving and so I get to be his chauffeur for awhile. I am honestly really thankful for the timing of all this. I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't like not being able to walk AND I hate Jason having heart pauses BUT if it had to happen I'm glad it all happened now. I am able to take care of Jason and drive him places because I am jobless and can't do much because of my foot. We are always looking for the silver lining :-) Oh and in case you wanted to see it, here is my swollen foot on the day of the injury AND a picture of my hurt foot compared to my regular foot a week after my run in with the curb (impressive, right?):

So I think that's all the updates for now! Stay tuned to a renovation update coming later today... I have a lot of time on my hands! Have a wonderful Thursday!
