What a summer this will be...

Chris and I have been overwhelmed with everything that is coming this summer. We have a new baby, a move across the state, new jobs, and need to find housing... Housing is where we are stuck right now and it is driving us crazy.. I hope we can find something soon, it is really hard to find housing when you live six hours away and have such specific needs out of a home. We may have to give up on the home daycare plan because it looks like the only way to do that is to buy a house in Colfax... Not sure if we are ready to buy a house, so then we need to find a pet friendly house and a new way to make an income where Chris doesn't have to work much and I can bring the little guy...
We are excited for the move and really do like Pullman it is just a stressful time while we try to prepare, and have been trying to prepare for the last few months.

On another note we are into our last 10 weeks of the pregnancy! I am still doing good, my 8 hour workday has been wearing on me, I am really ready to go home at about 7 hours. Oh well, money and insurance are provided by my job so I guess I have to stick it out as long as possible :) The doctor reports that my pregnancy is nice and boring just the way he likes it. No complications yet and very healthy, and that is the most important thing!

Chris was able to get some grants for next year and we are excited to have some money for school that is not loans, it will ease our financial situation a little bit. Having a baby makes us much more needy apparently because we didn't qualify for any last year. A definite blessing!

We were also able to make it down to California this month and see Robbie and CJ get married. These are two really great friends of ours and we were very excited to be there for them. Chris was a groomsman, and Robbie and CJ asked us to be there Godparents over their marriage. We were excited and honored to accept their request!

While we were in California we were also able to see some family. Chris's Dad and Diana (step mom) flew down on Friday morning and had lunch with us in Hollister at the Ding a ling Cafe, it was great to see them and spend some time with them while we were close. Then Jeremy (Chris's Brother) drove down to pick us up and we spent time with his family in Sacramento. We even got to see Mandy and Mom for a little while on Saturday! It was a quick visit but better than nothing.

Chris is halfway through his Spring quarter and then has two classes to take this summer. Then it is on to bigger and better things at WSU. I am very proud of him for doing so well in school and working as much as he does. It is hard to go to school and work, and I know he feels it sometimes but it will be worth it in the end!
