Exchange Student

WOAH I CANT BELIEVE how neglected my blog is.
Sorry about that!!!
Well I just wanted to write down that we have an exchange student
from Brazil this year. We are so happy and feeling extremely blessed.

I wasn't sure how it was all going to work out, or how I would do being
a host mom to a teenager but it turns out it's not as hard as I thought.
It helps that she's a great girl! We love having her in our home so far, and
although its only been a week and a half I can tell we are going to enjoy having
her in our home. Timothy already asks for her all day long when she's at school.

We hope to give our student Mariana, a great experience. I hope to also document her
stay through here. Hopefully I can remember to log in more.

This is so exciting! Can you tell Chris and I are thrilled to have someone else in our home.
She's so sweet!!!

I will pictures in the next post :)

Have a great week.

Our new callings

I am super duuper excited about my new calling!!
I am a primary teacher for the 7-8 year olds and I couldn't be happier. I have a huge class and  I am still getting the hang of it but I know it'll just keep getting better and better.
When I got baptized as a member I was 12 years old so I've always felt like I missed out on primary. Now that I have this calling I'm loving every minute of it. I am learning so much, specially those primary songs.

Chris is the an assistant ward clerk now! He was a little sad/bummed about being released as the ward librarian. I know he will love his calling because that's just the type of person he is, have I mentioned how much I love him?? He's such a wonderful worthy loving priesthood holder.

We feel extremely blessed right now. Good night.


Baby someday...

Lately I've been thinking about lots of things. I will share with you what I've been pondering about lately by making a list of what I've been thinking:

1. Family vacations
2. Temples
3. Our Future
4. Schooling
5. More babies?

Since I haven't blogged in months I will just do a brief explanation of why I haven't written much.
It's been a busy year for us! It feels like with a blink of an eye we start one month and next thing I know it's ending. I can't believe how busy we stay and how days just seem to cruise. Right now I am loving playing with Timothy and Analicia almost everyday. We have a blast! It's challenging at times but I absolutely love being able to watch them grow and learn.
Out of all the things going on in our lives and our plans for this year we have something very important that's been on our minds. We have been thinking a lot about whether we want to really try to have another baby. I think I'm not 100% sure at this moment but I know that I want it to happen sooner than later. Honestly though, Im scared! I know that's a lame excuse but I just need to keep praying and fasting to ask Heavenly Father about what's the next step and if I need to pursue something right now. I just feel like this is an extremely hard topic because it's a beautiful but trying experience for me. I just hope that if we decide to continue to pursue it this year that it'll come true when it needs to. I often have to remind myself that I'm not alone and that Heavenly Father and Jesus are right them to hold my hand through anything (and of course my amazing husband).  Not only do I need to trust in Him more but I need to remember that it's not on our time but his. I pray that our family will be sensitive to the Spirit and that we may keep growing and maturing spiritually because it will help us with anything that comes our way. Have a great week my friends :)
