Hey Friends and Family!

Now that Stephen and I are living a little ways away from everyone, we wanted to keep you all posted on our exciting life in Midland! ENJOY!

First a little update...

How did we get to Midland, you ask? The first year and a half of our life together was spent living in beautiful Austin, Texas. Wynne was working for the Rodeo and Stephen was working as a Land Man for Clayton Williams Energy and was working a lot from home & on the road all the time! Right before the Rodeo kicked off, we got the call that they wanted him to come work with the "big boys" in Midland, Texas - so here we are. We moved May 16th and it's hard to believe we've been here 3 months already! We were pretty sad to leave all of our amazing friends we made in Austin & our church, but this is a great opportunity for us! Something really exciting is that we bought our first house!! We absolutely love it - it was built in the 1960s and has some real character. I think my favorite "room" in the house is the front porch. It is so nice to sit out there and talk or read. I'll post some pics of the house soon. It's a work in progress!! Also, we added to our family and got a puppy! This is something we've wanted for a while and it finally happend. We spent the weekend going to Oklahoma to pick her up, with a stop in The Falls - thanks Brynn & Ash - to pick up little Milly! She is absolutely precious and I'll probably blog about her way too much (She's sort of like our child) Oh, and I just got a new job as a teacher! I am SO excited!! I am going to be the assistant teacher for the morning and afternoon K3 classes at a private school in town, Trinity, starting August 20th! (K3 isPre-K -THREE year olds!!) And I'm going to be helping my friend Amanda out with cheerleading. I could NOT be more excited. I absolutely love kids/people and am so excited to be back in the swing of forming and building relationships with them. Is that not the coolest job ever?

So I think you are caught up - Stephen got promoted - we moved to Midland - bought a house - got a dog and Wynne got a new job. WHEW, it's been a busy few months!

I'll post pictures soon!
