Yesterday, I started a new job back at our church, Stonebridge Evangelical Free as the Children's Ministry Assistant. It is part-time and I am very excited to be back working at a place that I love and using some of my gifts to further God's kingdom. However, it was also very hard to leave my job for the past two years, a barista at Wit's End coffeehouse. These two jobs are so completely different and yet I love both of them! It is at times of transition that I always am reminded that I do not do change well. I firmly believe that is why God made me a passionate person. He helps me commit and dive-in full board right away with things I am excited about so that when I get into what I am doing and think, " I can't do this," or "What am I doing," I realize that I need to forge ahead and it will go just fine! After all, God is the one in control and if he has given me the peace about a decision, I must be following His will! Below are two pictures of my last days at Wit's End! Such a great place to work with wonderful co-workers and customers!

August also means that Matt heads back into work at full steam. Since he works in education, we are very blessed to have a chunk of time out of the summer that he is off. We cherish that time and Caleb loves spending time with his "Da-da". This summer we were able to go out to Colorado for a week to visit friends and family. Below is a picture from our trip there.
Last but not least, Caleb is transitioning as well. He is no longer a baby but a toddler! He has his own likes, dislikes and wants to be independent. It is fun to see him develop but can also be frustrating at times. Matt and I are in a new season of parenting and it requires a lot of patience, prayer and asking God for wisdom! Many days we just look at each other and think...."We have no idea what to do!". :)
