For the past year, literally, Jason and I have been praying and fasting and hoping for two things: a baby and an internship. It was frustrating when we both felt like we were doing all we could and still letting the other down. Month after month, as things would fall through, we learned a lot about patience and strengthening our trust in the Lord. We really tried improving on spritual matters like better scripture reading and more temple attendance, hoping that once we could show the Lord that we were trying to do our best, that He would bless us with our desires. And of course, I knew that both our wishes would come true at the same time, and they did! Our baby is healthy and Jason got a paid internship with Alta Mesa Holdings in Houston! Thank you, Jeff, for all your help! We're so excited for an adventure and the opportunity to spend some time with the Gutke family this summer! The plan is for Jason to head down begining of May, while I have to stay and finish up teaching the school year, and join him in June. One hot and humid summer, coming up!

Congratulations on the internship! We are excited to have you in Houston. Be sure to bring your swimsuits -- I'm sure it will be a warm summer!

Mike is so jealous--he served his mission there--and he wants to know exactly where you're going and all about it! Congratulations! PS, I love your story of how things worked out; that was us this time last year!

I hope you get a maternity swimsuit. You'll need it!
