Weekend trip to Peoria, IL!!

So over the weekend we traveled about 3 1/2 hours south to visit some friends (Jake and Melissa) in Peoria,  IL.  Jake was Jeremy's first roommate, and great friend when he was drafted by the Mets.  They lived together in Brooklyn, NY.  Jake and Melissa have a one month old baby boy, Kipton, and it was good for Jeremy and I to get a glimpse of what life will be like for us in about a month.  Melissa gave me lots of good advise on must have things before the baby is born.  Jake is still playing baseball and will be trying out for the Dogders in Arizona in about a week, so they will be traveling a large distance with their new addition.  Please pray for safe travels for them.  Anyway, I am no 25 weeks along and still growing.  Time is flying.  I can not believe we will have a baby in 13-17 weeks.  Its getting more real and it is becoming more difficult for me to concentrated during classes because I have baby on the brain.  Pray I will concentrate during these last few months. Classes have been going great.  Here is a peom from Romans class.  Hope it encourages your heart.  Have a great week!
Near, so near to God, Nearer I could not Be,
For in the Person of His Son, I'm just as Near as He!
Dear, so very Dear to God, Dearer I could not Be,
For in the Person of His Son, I'm just as Dear as He!!

23 Weeks and Counting!!

So I am officially 23 weeks along!  Baby girl is moving like crazy.  She weighs a little over a pound.  We are very excited.  Dad and Mom were so gracious and bought us a stroller last week. We found a good deal on one at Sears. It could also work for a boy, just in case the ultrasound lady was wrong.  Haha! Jeremy is very excited about putting it together.   It seems like it is a good time to have a baby because so many things are on sale right now.  Also I have posted some pictures of diaper wreaths I have been making for some of my friends here at the bible school.  So many people are having babies around here.  I guess it’s the age we are at.  The diaper wreaths are so fun to make and you can go as expensive or inexpensive as you want to on them.  Anyway, we just finished up with 1&2 Peter and Soteriology yesterday, and will begin Missions in Church History and James/Jude.   We are excited to start some new classes, but sad to see the others go.  1 Peter was so great and it was so cool to see the grace of God throughout the book.  The theme was, “Steadfastness in the Christian life requires and accurate understanding of the nature of life under the grace of God. “  The theme of 2 Peter was “Living spotlessly and blamelessly in light of eternity.”  Both books were great to study because to be honest, I had never really read them before.   Well I have to do some cleaning.  Love you all!

23 Weeks and Counting!!

We made it through the Blizzard!

So I have posted some pics of the blizzard. It was so crazy. Some places in our area got between 16 and 17 inches. You could not even see outside because of all the snow falling and being blown. Hope you enjoy these crazy pics. Love Yall!!

Down town Waukesha! You can not even hardly see the stores from the street!

22 Weeks and Counting!

So this is me at 22 weeks. Jeremy felt baby girl kick on Sunday for the first time.  It was so exciting.  We can not wait for her to get here!! Also there is a blizzard coming to our area tonight! First time for us Arkansans to ever see anything like this.  We have already gotten about 7 inches of snow today and we are supposed to get another 7-12 tonight.  Yikes! There has not been this much snow here in 10 years. I made a big roast for dinner.  Sounded good with it being so cold and nasty outside.  Anyway classes are going great.  We will be finishing up with 1 and 2 Peter and Soteriology next week and starting James/Jude and Missions in Church History.  Well have to go check on my roast.  Love yall! Have a good week!
