July + August

So I've gone two months without blogging- failing at my once-a-month goal. It gets to the point where I have stuff to say and the longer I wait to share it, the more stuff there is, and then I become overwhelmed by the idea of updating the blog. So forget that- I am just going to make a little list of everything going on.

-I got a job! I am working part time at a rural hospital, about 25 minutes away. I am doing group therapy with the severely and chronically mentally ill. This is definitely not the job I had in mind when I graduated, but I am seriously so grateful for it. I am learning a ton, the clients are so nice, and the experience is invaluable. And I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

-Jon did a killer job on the MCAT, I am so proud of him! All of his hard work and dedication really paid off.  He is continuing with all of his applications and had chosen 29 schools to apply to. Here we go for round 2!

-Our friends are really wonderful. Recently we have enjoyed a fun trip home over Labor Day weekend, we went apple picking up in Oak Glenn yesterday, and tonight we are making apple crisp and playing games.

-Larue, our puppy, provides us with a lot of entertainment. She has mastered the doggy door and potty training which makes going to work easier. She is weighing in at nearly 9 pounds, three times her weight when we got her! She is missing all of the love and attention she got at home with our families.

-Jon got a new calling at church, he is a ward missionary. This seems like it will be a good fit for him and we are excited to see how he gets to be involved!

That is all I can remember for the time being. I am sure there are more things to update, but that is all the "big stuff" for now. We are looking forward to this heat to go away and into the cooler weather of the fall.
