Life will be changing quite a bit because of Luke's new job, so we are viewing all the changes as a fun adventure and enjoying every minute. For the next year, we'll be living at school during the week and then we'll commute every weekend to spend two days in Gettysburg. The drive is just about two hours each way. Slightly longer if you count our chick-fil-a breaks. One of the biggest blessings is that both sides of our family live out in that direction, that means we're going to get a lot of time with them this year.
I'm thankful for the past couple years we've had at school. We were a part of a great church and Luke had a job he really loved. At our church, we learned a ton and built great friendships. God developed my heart in ways I didn't know I needed. At Luke's job, we met such cool people and I got to see my husband work faithfully without complaining. He was a full time student with scholarships to maintain, a husband, dad, and an employee and he just did it with so much love in his heart. I love that guy - he is the coolest.
Another family update... I'll be finishing up my associates degree this year! I am anxious and excited about getting back in the classroom. Luke and I will graduate together in May. I also plan to keep working my part time job, babysitting for an amazing family, and to get more involved with kids ministry in Gettysburg. Lots of good stuff. Lots to adjust to and schedules to figure out, but overall we're just overwhelmed by God's goodness. I love this season for our family. It feels like tons of answered prayers coming together and we're just... overwhelmed. Haha. That's the only word for it.
And of course, I can't finish this post without sharing about our girl. :) Bekah is now 13 months old and she is still super awesome. She's a walker now! She takes just about 3-5 steps at a time before she plops down on her bum. Bekah loves her extended family and goes crazy when her little cousins are around. She is very "busy". She's constantly figuring things out, turning little objects over in her tiny little hands and inspecting them. She especially loves her daddy's car keys, the fuzz on her favorite blanket (when bored in the car) and the tv remote. Bek and I had a different kind of week together last week while Luke was chaperoning at a camp. I just loved my time with her. I know it sounds sort of funny, but I really appreciate that little girl. I love who she is and I love how she interacts with the world. She's my girl.
I think that's about all that's new with us. So, how are you doing? What's new in your life? Thanks for reading, friends!
