August already?!

It is hard to believe that summer is almost gone. I couldn't be more thrilled about that fact but in a way it's hard to believe. I got pregnant with Kate in the winter...been through spring, surviving the summer and shes arriving in the fall! Wow! We really are on the last leg of this journey! August is a very busy but very fun month for us. We are taking off tomorrow to Maui to meet my family there..we have been counting down to this trip for months! There are no words to describe how excited we are to get there! It will be our last hurrah before the peanut arrives... Don't worry, we already have 4 trips planned for next year. She will be quite the traveler as well! In other news, Chris had his review at the firm and......it went extremely well!!! I knew it would but it was better than we expected. Thank you Lord! It makes my heart so happy knowing that he is loved and cherished there. They are blessed to have him and we are blessed by that job. God's timing is so so perfect. I can hardly wait to be a stay at home mom and Chris is thrilled and so proud that he is able to support his little family (of all girls!) There is nothing in the world that I would rather be doing. It's so nice to be at a place of contentment. The world is always throwing things at you to make you want more and more and to be at a place where our hearts are happy and could not be more content is a blessing. It's amazing when we look back to where we were this time last year and where we are today. God's hand has never left us. We were both soo miserable in our jobs, money was so tight and the future seemed uncertain but, we trusted in the Lord and took that leap of Faith. He has definitely stretched us and is continuing to do so but sometimes those aches and pains are good to go through. They only make you stronger.
Now that I have totally gone off on a tangent I'm going to say Aloha for now, we'll see you in Maui!
