Go Regents Lions!

When Craig and I got married last June, and I moved to Oxford to be with him we were sure that we would only live here for 1 year - then on to seminary we would go! In October of last year, we had been married a short 4 months and we received a phone call that would change our life. The head master of Regents Classical School of Oxford called Craig and basically offered him the job as their first every Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. Regents is a wonderful private school here in Oxford that at this point had yet to really tap into the athletic side of an educational system. After several months of prayers and seeking advise from family and friends - we felt the Lord calling us to stay in Oxford and for Craig to take this job. Here we are, a year after that phone call - Craig just finished his first season of coaching football! He loved every part of it. Regents has brought so many blessing into our lives and we are so grateful to be apart of this wonderful school. The Lord has provided Craig with a job where is gets paid to talk sports and God in the same sentence. What a dream job! Thank you God for your faithfulness!

Patience


I had a doctor's appointment this past Monday because I was 5 days late but getting negative pregnancy testsI had an ultra sound and blood work done to see what's going on. The ultra sound was not very helpful because IF by chance I am pregnant, it's too early for an ultra sound to show anything. The lab was not able to get the blood work results that so they had to call me back on Tues - which happened to be my birthday! They called Tues afternoon. Sadly, I am not pregnant. The ultra sound showed I have a large cyst and therefore the doctor has recommended that we take this next month "off". Fertility drugs would only cause more problems to this cyst. I will have a check up ultra sound on Dec 1st and then a consultation with the doctor a week later to discuss our options and next steps available to us.

Happy Birthday Missy!

Yesterday was my 26th birthday! Craig surprised me several days ago with the news that we would be getting a puppy - and I would get to pick it out. Sunday night we drove to Blue Springs, MS to "look" at some chocolate lab puppies a breeder had. Our plan was to just look and then go home to discuss which one we would get. After driving thru what seemed like a redneck safari - literally right thru a herd of wild horses & past a little donkey family, we finally arrived at the puppy kennel. With only the beams from our head lights, we spotted him! Craig picked him up and  said "I think you should hold this one".That's all it took. I was hooked!

Needless to say, we went home with him that night!
