I cannot tell you how many times I have started a post but then haven't finished it. I guess there really isn't much to tell. Life keeps going whether we are ready or not. It feels as though this summer went by so incredibly fast! But no matter what, God blesses us. I'm tearing up as I write about this. In my Personal Progress the last thing I did before the summer was about tithing, and to pay tithing consecutively for three months. It came at such a poignant time because Jon's job ended for the summer and he didn't have another one lined up yet. I was still teaching piano and voice for the summer and so that was our only income, but I knew that if I was still paying tithing we would be blessed. All I could do was go on faith. Jon had several interviews, and even second interviews, but none of them ever panned out. It was really frustrating and toward the end of the summer we were starting to get a little worried. Thankfully, some things came into play and all within a week, Jon managed to do some hard work for my dad that he paid him for and Jon got a job, AND school started and so financial aid came in! I find it really interesting that my experience was for three months and it was almost exactly three months before everything seemed to work out. How grateful I am for this gospel and for the peace that it brings.
Now, Jon's new job! He is working in the call center for a company called AvantGaurd, which is a security system for medical, fire and burglar alarms. Basically when the alarm goes off Jon is the person on the other end dispatching help. It came at such a wonderful time, and we were so grateful for him to have found a job that is close to Weber that will work with his school schedule. It's about a mile away from Weber State and so he will drive to work and then he's been riding his bike to school. I'm a little nervous, just because winter is coming soon and so I'm praying that he is safe everyday.
Liam and I have been having quite a fun time everyday, waking up and getting to be his mom is the greatest blessing anyone could ask for. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be his mother. He is such a sweet little boy. If not a bit of a prankster... the other day, we were eating breakfast and he started making this choking noise, and so I jumped up and hurried to help him and what does the little stinker do? Starts laughing! Yes, my little jokester of a child thought that it was funny. So I sat down and a couple minutes later he started doing it again! It's not like I can't not help him! So I jumped up again and he again giggled. Yesterday we went over to my parents house and Liam, Rachel and I swam in their pool. Liam is learning to love the pool! We were having such a fun time yesterday! The water was really nice, It's sad that the summer is coming to an end. But fall is wonderful too! I love seeing all of the leaves change and stepping on crinkly leaves.
Well, that's really all about that we have as far as updates. Life comes fast but we are trying to stay on top of it.
