Finally Blogging

So I guess I will finally end my blogging hiatus. I wish I had a good excuse for not blogging, but I have no excuses. At first we were really busy, but really I don't have a good excuse after that.

The biggest thing in our lives? Aaron graduated from Willamette University College of Law!!!!! Yay!!! I am so proud of Aaron and all that he has accomplished. He has worked so incredibly hard these last three years, and has made so many sacrifices for our family in getting to where he is at at this point. Graduation was Sunday May 17, and on Monday May 18 we packed up our stuff and headed on our way to Salt Lake City.

Aaron and his sister Andrea. Andrea also graduated from UCLA law school, just the week before. Runs in the family I guess.

Our next adventure was Aaron preparing for the bar and me finding employment. I was really feeling doubtful about finding a job being pregnant and all, but I did find a job and went in for an interview and they didn't even know I was pregnant! I think they were a little shocked with the handicapped people I worked with noticed before they did. This job has been a nice break for me, it is not a very stressful job and so that has been nice. I do miss my paychecks, but really am just grateful to have a job to help hold us over during this transitional time in our lives. As for Aaron, he spent all of his time putting his nose to the grindstone studying for the bar, and he finished this about four weeks ago. We have another month or so until we find out the results of the bar, so that has been kind of nerve wracking.

After Aaron finished the bar, we decided to take our last weekend trip out of town before baby Piper arrives, so we went up to Jackson Hole and had a FABULOUS time. It was so beautiful up there, and so relaxing, and so much cooler up there than it was down in Salt Lake. We drove up Friday after I got done with work and when we got into town, we walked around town and went into all of the shops. On Saturday morning we went for a short hike, since I'm not up to too much at this point. Then we went on a picnic by the river and rode the gondolas up at the ski resort at the Jackson ski resort. We had so much fun just relaxing and enjoying each other's company and enjoying the beautiful scenery. It was so great to get away after all of the craziness of the last few months.

Anyways, I guess I will try and do better about blogging now.
