So lots of changes in our lives these last few months. It's been an absolutely crazy summer! Originally, we were set to move to VA for Austin to attend William and Mary Law School. While we were waiting to hear back about a job for me, we decided to move into my mom's house since they are traveling so much. In June, Austin sadly had to tell W & M that I wasn't able to find a job and that we would be attending SMU. Well, August 1st I received an email from a school in Williamsburg saying I got a job. Unfortunately, after speaking with the dean at W & M and trying to get us re-admitted, she said they were over-enrolled and unable to accept Austin back into the program. Disappointing to say the least, but we have both been very prayerful about all of this and know it was meant to be. Austin started school last week and I've probably seen him a total of 20 hrs. He always studies, never sleeps, and has a to-do list a mile long. Poor guy! It'll be over before you know it. So proud of you Austin! I started school last Wednesday and I am so happy to say that I LOVE my kids. It is so refreshing after the year I had last year. Let's just hope those sweet personalities and hardworking attitudes continue. I am so thankful for how God has shown His faithfulness to us through all of this. While we wanted a fresh start in VA, we know that Texas is where are friends and family are and I truly think I am meant to teach these 8th graders this year. Looking forward to all of the wonderful opportunities to come at DZ and at SMU. Go Hawks and Go Mustangs! (Don't worry, I'm still a Bear for life! Just trying to be a supportive wife)

Happy 1st Day of Law School. So studious!
