Well, I went ahead and posted some pictures and wanted to give a quick update about what we have been doing. The beginning of this month was 4th of July picnic. About 5 of us couples met up at a park and grilled out. We had so much fun eating, playing catch, talking, etc. Unfortunately our fireworks got rained out so we did not get to see them. But we had a great time anyway!

The next week, Tim traveled to Kansas for a couple of interviews. Needless to say, we are still in the waiting process of a job for Tim so it was not a profitable as we would have liked, but Tim did have a safe trip driving a car all the way there so that was such a praise. During the weekend he was gone, I was able to go to Williamsburg and hang out with Dan, Karis, and the girls. It was so much fun to be with them and have something to do while Tim was away. (Was I ever glad to see him a few days later. I think I smiled the whole day!!! We were able to spend the whole day together the day he got back and it was wonderful!!! I really missed him.)

That same weekend, we were able to get together with G, Amanda, and Gretta as well as John and Bethany. We enjoyed our time with them. The boys of course loved playing the WII and the girls did what we do best...talked!! It was so much fun seeing them again and catching up.

That next week was VBS at our church. Dan and Karis came for that as Dan was teaching, and they all stayed with us a couple of days. We had so much fun with them and playing with the girls. Kayla just made us laugh and laugh. She got so excited every time she saw one of her Uncles or Aunties...she just loved playing with everyone!! And Krista is such a content baby...they are just so much fun!!!

July has been a great month thus far and pretty busy. We are planning on moving sometime in August...We are not definite on the date and will keep everyone updated, but we are starting to prepare with finishing up our jobs and packing and such. We are still obviously praying for a job for Tim, but are really ready to get out there and start our ministry at the church. We are so excited, but also sad to leave our wonderful friends here. We will keep you all updated as we continue to plan out our departure!!

Below, I have a slide show of Memorial Day weekend (yeah I am behind). I will not comment too much on Memorial Day except we were able to get together with Dan & Karis and girls, John and Beth, and James and Laura. It was so much fun. We went to the mall, grilled out, played softball, etc. It was so much fun being with family!

The next set of pictures consist of our 1 year anniversary trip!!! We celebrated our 1 year anniversary on June 16th!!! We ended up going to Luray, VA. We stayed 3 nights in a bed and breakfast. It was so awesome. We were able to go to the Shenandoah National Park a couple of times. It was beautiful there!! We went on a hike to a waterfall which was fun. It was not a really long hike, but let me tell you, the way back was all uphill. I could tell I was pregnant and had put on some weight. It was not as easy as it would have been before pregnancy, but we made it!! We also went to Luray Caverns, walked along a River, went to a lake, watched movies, ate and ate and ate (not good for a pregnant woman as I found out the next time on the scale...oops..), and just relaxed. It was so much fun to just get away and spend 3 full days together! I really enjoyed our first year of marriage. God has been so good to us, and Tim has been a wonderful husband!!! We both agree that God has shown Himself faithful, and we are so thankful that we are going to be able to depend on Him the rest of our lives!!

Tim also got to celebrate his first Father's Day...although Megan is not here yet, we still celebrated it. I gave Tim a New York Mets photo frame that says...Born to Be a Mets Fan!! WE can't wait to put a picture of her in it!!

The last set of pictures is one of us at the beach with James and Laura and Dan and Karis and girls. We enjoyed spending a couple hours there as well.

Not much is going on other than working and such. I am doing well and feeling great! Tim is going to Kansas next weekend for a couple of interviews so we are really praying that he is able to get a job from one of these. Hopefully after that, we will know when we are moving!! We will keep you updated.
