Who Dat?!

I'm getting settled into my new job, and I really think I'm going to like it! Funny story, though. I left my previous company because I REALLY like my new manager. On my first day, he tells me he's been promoted. SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!?!?!? We discussed the issue at lunch, and I feel confident he's going to replace his position with someone similar to his managing style...so that's good!

We've been praying for some time now that the Lord would show us whether Jared should resign from his full-time job and just concentrate on school OR continue plugging along with both. Without boring you with details, it was an extremely difficult decision to make. (Okay, a hint: Losing an income + losing tuition reimbursement...ugh!) God is faithful, and we feel called that Jared should concentrate on his studies in order to graduate next May...yes, I said it, NEXT MAY!!!! It has been a long and bumpy road, and we're beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know, I know...only to go into another tunnel in Ph D land. Nevertheless, we are coming out of one tunnel, and I will be thankful! We are encouraged to take this leap of faith and learn how our God will stretch us/mold us into the servants He has planned for our lives. Henry and I are proud of you, Da; You can do it!

Henry is growing more and more each day. We are so in love with his personality. We all watched the Superbowl game with some friends, namely YaYa and Justy. We were trying to teach him to say, "Who Dat!", but it didn't go over well. He would just yell, "DAAAAA" and look at Jared. Way to Go, Saints! Henry's "talking" so much more...we're really in for it ;) I'll try to post pics/videos soon. It may be while though...and it may be overwhelming!!!

I guess that's it for now. Although, I do ask you to continue to pray for our friends Lauren and Justin (Yaya and Justy), as they are still dealing with the previous mentioned emergency situation.
