I haven't done this forever!!

Wow! I can't believe how long it has been since we've updated this! We've had some life changing things happen in our family...all which have kept us very busy, thus blogging has taken a backseat. Let's see...first of all Drew has been given a full tuition scholarship and an assistanceship to attend Virginia Tech in the fall! He'll be in the MBA program and then continue on to get his PhD! He wants to be able to teach business at a university. It'll be a long, hard road but the reward will be totally worth it! It'll be exciting to eventually be on a salary (rather than commission) and have the schedule that he'll have as a teacher! So..with that said we'll be moving to Blacksburg in a month! We've been living with Mom and Dad Hebdon since the end of April because our lease was up on our house. They've been so generous to let us come and destroy their peaceful house!

The other news is that I'm 23 weeks pregnant! After my 3rd miscarriage I gave up all fertility medicine and had come to terms that this wasn't going to happen for us. That month I got pregnant! It has been a roller coaster ride of emotions...lots of fear that we'd have another miscarriage...but things are looking great! And, I can feel the baby moving all the time now which is very comforting! And...we found out that we're having a BOY!!! We're so excited to welcome him to our family! I'm due Oct.7th, but I'll probably have a c-section earlier than that. The timing is not what we had planned, but we'll have two wonderful little "mothers" to help us out! It'll be interesting with Drew being in school...but we'll make it work. So that's our update! Hopefully I'll do this blogging thing more often...
