Changes!

I hate change. I don't know why I hate it so much but I always have. Christian thinks I am weird but I get scared when it comes to change even when it is good. We have some huge changes coming about in the next couple of weeks and I actually feel pretty good about everything.

Christian starts school at Stevens-Henager College on January 21st. He will go to school non-stop for 15 months, Mon-Thurs. from 6-9:30pm. He will have his Associates in Computer Technology and Networking. I wish I could say he would be done with school by then but he will then continue to get his Bachelors. Anyway, in 15 months he will have completed a 90 credit course. What does this mean? Only that he will have to work his butt off to get A's and B's! Ava and I won't see much of him but it is a sacrifice most of us have to make to succeed in the world! I am so glad that Christian is able to do this program because he is finally getting through school and is actually excited about it!

The next big change going on is that Christian got a NEW JOB with Direct Pointe!! Click here if you would like to see their website:

This is really exciting for us because it is a much better job with a reputable, honest company. He has been going through a hiring process for a few months now. He had 2 personal interviews, 1 online interview, and 1 technical interview. We were then invited to their Christmas party at the Grand America Hotel, which was so neat! He was finally offered the job and we are really excited. They will reimburse us for school if Christian gets good grades in school too! I am worried about this though because I hate waiting for the insurance to kick in. We only have to wait 30 days but I am still nervous.

Mostly good changes and we feel like these changes are right. The next year will be really hard but I know that what we do is not about the hardship of this life, it's about earning the rewards of eternity! Heavenly Father is mindful of all families with husbands in school and I know we will receive many blessings because of Christians sacrifices to provide for our little family!

That is all very good news!! :) I am with you on the school thing. Adam is working full-time and going to school full-time!! I wish we could get together sometime!! But it goes by fast and you just get used to it. And like you said the results are well worth it! (it's especially good for Christian to do it while he's excited about it). We should talk on the phone sometime. Hope everything works out perfectly!

That is so awesome about Christian getting that job! I had no idea he was planning on going to Stevens Henegar. It will be hard but Christian is a hard worker and it will be worth it.

Thats awesome about your husband. It is hard having a husband in school. It gets lonely at night, but it will be worth it!
