What have we been up to?

I created this blog a while ago but again got wrapped up in family, school and life and left it to sit  until coming back to it recently. The biggest event our life since my last post has been finding out on 11/29/2012 (yes, the night we arrived home from our honeymoon) that we were expecting a new baby!! This news has been so exciting and just 5 weeks ago we found out we are expecting another healthy baby boy--more on that later.

I also have been doing the stay at home mom (SAHM) thing since December and went back to school for my M.A. in Organizational Leadership in October--PHEW!! Andrew has been working on his Master's through the University of Texas at Tyler and will be finished in a few short weeks. He then will begin a PhD program through Tyler that begins in June. We anticipate by spring 2014 we will BOTH be done with school for a looonngg time.

A few last great triumphs in the Scott family plan has been the purchase of our first home and finding a church home in Shakopee, MN. In December 2011, we finally moved into our new house.This home has opened so many doors to great new friends and connections to a wonderful community. We are so grateful to our neighbors who invited us to their church, Brookwood Community Church shortly after we moved in. Wewill be attending their membership class this coming Sunday.

These achievements and triumphs over the past few months have allowed us to reflect on how crazy life can get, yet how thankful we are to receive such different gifts of family, friends and community. Now that everyone is up to speed we hope to start sharing more as these events unfold.
