Getting Back To Blogging

Well, it's clearly been a while since I have posted to my blog. Mainly because life happened, and frankly I forgot my blog existed. Starting now I am hoping to get in the habit of daily updates (and sometimes daily venting) in an attempt to keep others updated, as well as something for me to reflect on.

As of now Isaac and I are both full-time students. Isaac is getting his Master's in Athletic Training at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center and I am still working on getting my J.D. at the Law School. We will both graduate in May 2011 with high (although possibly unrealistic) hopes for jobs. Isaac is currently working on sending out applications to most of the NFL teams for their athletic training internship program. He would of course prefer to work for the Dallas Cowboys (as any true Texan would) but who would turn down an opportunity to work for any NFL team? I have accepted an internship with the Harris County District Attorney's Office in Houston and am very excited. What an awesome opportunity it is going to be!

I have also recently been elected as Executive Symposium Editor for the Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal at school. Each year we hold a continuing legal education seminar which licensed attorney's attend in order to keep their license current. I am in charge of setting up and planning the 2011 seminar. This will be a great opportunity for me to get to know people in the Probate world and (details still in the works) comes with a scholarship for next year. It has been rumored that a full-tuition scholarship may be possible but nothing is final yet. This is such a great blessing to us and a wonderful opportunity for me and I look forward to what the year has in store.

Spring break is quickly approaching (thank goodness!) and we are looking forward to some time off from school. Both of our birthdays are that week and Isaac's parents are sending us on a mini vacation to a bed-and-breakfast! We are also hoping to go to Amarillo for a few days and spend some time with his family since we haven't gotten to see them since Christmas! (Back to the birthdays for a few minutes. I can't believe how old I (ok, we) are getting. Isaac will be 25 and I will be 24 this year. And we have been married for going on 3 years now.)

Needless to say, life has been crazy and wonderful journey over the last year. I am so excited to get back to blogging so that next year I can look back over this year and see what God has done for us!!!

A Month Under My Belt

So, school has been in for a month now, and I am loving every minute of it. Thats all I really know to say, I just haven't had time or energy to write lately so there is my small update to keep you going.

Here we go...

So, I survived Orientation last week, which really wasn't too bad. And thus far I have survived homework. I have finished two of three classes and have started the third and its only noon on Saturday so that is a good sign. Classes officially start on Monday and right now I am still excited about that. I feel like I am already learning so much. Sorry such a short entry but really all I have time for. Just thought I would keep you up to date!

Boot Camp!

Well, today I attended a "seminar" of sorts put on by the HLSA (Hispanic Law Student Association) and the BLSA (Black Law Student Association) as sort of a pre-orientation orientation. It was not required but Im so glad I decided to go. It was a chance for me to get to know some people going into orientation so that I would be more relaxed and also a chance to get to know and talk to some of the 2L and 3L students who have been in my position before. We got to ask questions and get a students perspective, no lies, just the flat truth of the matter and what we really need to know going into class. We also got to meet some of the students that will be in our particular section with us (we will have all of our classes together) and talk to some of the students that were in that section last year and have them give us tips and heads up about our specific teachers. That was my favorite part of the day because that was so relevant to exactly what I am walking into. It was very intimidating but I am so glad that I went. Tomorrow begins the actual orientation which will be three days long and then class starts on Monday. Tomorrow I am going to get my books so that I can get my homework done by Monday. Anyway, I am still really nervous but very excited and ready to get started and get into a routine! Wish me luck!

The End is Leading to a New Beginning

Well, here goes nothing. My last day of work for Dish Network is coming to a close, and Monday I begin my life as a 1st year law student. It's amazing how God continues to bless my life each and everyday. Please pray for me as I begin my journey and help me keep my feet planted firmly on the ground.

It's Almost Over! Yet We're Just Getting Started!

Well, here I am with only two days left at Dish Network, and I am thrilled! Friday is my last day and I am ready for that day to be here. Isaac is busy working with two-a-day's now with SpringLake Earth and loving being around football again. He's not enjoying the long days and waking up at 6 am but he loves being around highschool sports. I'm trying to get all of the last minute things done before school starts on Wednesday with orientation and am getting really excited about school.

We made a trip to Amarillo this past weekend to visit Isaac's parents and had a lot of fun! We finally got to see their new house which is beautiful. John says it's the same size as the house they had in Claude but I felt as if it was twice as big. It's a really great house for them and great location in Amarillo.

Other than that we are just hanging out enjoying spending time together before we both get into the swing of school. Life is good and we are very blessed!

I'm so excited, this weekend we are going to Amarillo to see Isaac's parents one last time before school starts. They actually used to live in a small town about 20 miles east of Amarillo, Claude,TX home of 1300 people. About a month ago (on our anniversary) they actually moved into Amarillo to be closer to work since Lauren graduated high school and is moving to Lubbock this fall. So this will be our first visit to their new house! Isaac is a little sad about not going back to Claude anymore, and thinks it is funny that we are going to have to get directions to his parents house. It will be really nice not to have to drive the 20 miles into town and back again everyday we are there so we can go into Amarillo...we'll already be there! And I'm also really excited because I have a hair appointment with their hairdresser Birdie on Saturday! I need a trim and color soooooooo bad!

Also...I only have 7 days of work left! How awesome is that. But that also means that school is only a week and a half away! Yikes!!! Isaac starts tw0-a-day's on Monday and will have to leave the house everymorning by 6:30 so he can make it to SpringLake in time for practice. Then he will come home and shower and eat and be at NorthStar from 2-5. We are gonna be one busy family, I tell ya! But we are really excited about where God is leading us.

I guess that's really all for now. I'll try to take some pictures this weekend and post them for you! Have a great rest of the week!
