Fall is in the air and I am in love. This is my absolute favorite time of year. I seriously count down until the first day of Fall so that I can whip out my scarfs, boots, and cute sweaters. Plus this means many adventures involving crunchy leaves, pumpkins, and lots of Hot Chocolate. What more can a girl ask for.
But with Fall in the Air, it also brings many changes to my little family. First is that we our completely out of school. This past summer Jake was giving a couple of tests that he had to pass to continue his PHD program. He was able to pass one but not the other. We feel good about this though. We both feel that this is the path that we are suppose to be on. We are growing and learning and becoming better people. We know that God has a plan for us and he will lead us where we are suppose to be, even if it is not easiest or clearest path to take. So Jake is now looking for a full time job.
We are excited, curious, nervous, and everything thing else you can think of about this new adventure laying before us. It is strange to think that we could go anywhere. With Jake looking for a job and not continuing his PHD our goals have changes significantly. Now we are aiming at working for a couple of years and then going back to school to get an MBA. We are dreaming and scheming about the new adventure ahead, but for now we are trying to be patient with the job hunt and enjoy spending so much time together as a family. And we have been having so much fun together as a family.
Yesterday we were able to take Emma to her very first pumpkin patch. She was in Heaven, running around examining all the pumpkins, playing with the hay, and trying to convince us to take all the pumpkins home…. it almost worked too. Instead she got to take home her very own little pumpkin and one pumpkin that we can use to color and decorate. Here is a little peek into our adventure…
This was the pumpkin Emma originally wanted hahaha.changes, Fall, little things, Pumpkin, traditions
