This year there we have been blessed with so much! Where do I start? Keola and I have reached 3 years of a deliriously happy marriage, we were able to find a nice place close to campus so we could easily walk to school, he finished his first year in the counseling psych program successfully at UHH with a 4.0, we’ve been given the awesome calling of working with the YSA in our ward, Keola was able to stand in his best friend’s wedding line and watch him marry an AMAZING girl, and a couple weeks later we find out that we’re gonna be parents! A couple weeks after that, we find out that BOTH of our tuitions are fully covered, and ON TOP OF THAT, he received a $15,000 scholarship and several smaller scholarships for this year. I suspect he’ll finish this semester with a 4.0 as well, although that remains to be seen. He has had great classmates, great internships, and great faculty to work with. This is his last semester of classes. Next semester, he is going to focus solely on getting the 300 hours of internship required to graduate. Yes. GRADUATE May 15!
So if you’re reading this you’ve seen my Christmas themed blog background. Maybe you’re rolling your eyes thinking that it’s too early for Christmas stuff. I am certainly usually the first the criticize the commercialization of Christmas, especially when I walk into Walmart and see Christmas stuff before Halloween, but this year…
This past Friday (yes, Friday the 13th) my littlest brother Brandon hit 14 years old. For those of you who haven’t seen him in a while…well…let’s just say he’s growing up too fast! But he’s still my little bro.
Hello everyone. I’ll now be adding to the content of this blog so that you can have a better perspective on our family. Through the eyes of a Martian (men are from mars). Hopefully through reading my blog you may gain a better perspective on Martians such as I. I know my wife is still trying to figure me out. Martian out.
Hey everbody! Sorry I’ve kind of dropped of the face of the planet. I’ve just been SOOOOO busy lately with school and when I’m not busy with school, I’m busy being tired and hungry 🙂 Plus I’ve been doing weekly youtube video blogs, so it’s kinda pointless to say the same thing over again so check those out for updates.
BUT, I do have a fun bit of news that merits its’ own blog entry. This morning, as I was just waking up, Twix decided to give me a nice little “good morning mom” by kicking so hard that I could feel it on the OUTSIDE 🙂 This is a milestone that all mommies can’t wait for – the moment where daddy can also feel the baby moving. I’ve been feeling Twix for a couple weeks now, here and there, but NEVER from the outside. I put my hand where Twix was kicking and hoped for another kick. I got no less than 3 kicks that went right into my hand!!! I was so excited I freaked and shook Keola awake. He thought something was wrong but I just said “Hurry up! Feel my belly!” So I put his hand where I felt the kicks coming from but I think I freaked out so much that I scared Twix away because Keola didn’t feel a thing. I don’t think I’ll be feeling Twix that strongly again anytime soon. It was probably a really rare moment, but it won’t be long before I’ll be complaining about getting kicked in the ribs. Half way mark next week baby! Stay tuned for 20 week ultrasound pics!
