Jake and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving. We came to Tulsa on Tuesday and had dinner at Sierra and Jerad's. She is a yummy cook! On Wednesday we went apartment hunting. That is a very overwhelming task in Tulsa. But we think we found it! It's a little townhouse on 65th & Mingo. Not very big but it will do and is for a good price. Moving means we had to pass our kittens on to a new home. His brother took them in. Pet deposits are huge in Tulsa! We are excited about all this but moving is a big task. We looked at how much it costs to rent a U-Haul, just over $100! Yikes! But we need one so we know it will have to happen (stay tuned for more).
Wednesday night we went to his family's place. I sat in the kitchen and talked to his mom and helped her make dinner. I love feeling a part of their family! You can tell she loves having daughters around.
Thursday we drove to Broken Bow (3.5 hours south of Tulsa). My dad's mom lives there. We recently found out she has Parkinson's disease and has been falling a lot. It is scaring the family and making us realize that her time left may be short. So, everyone went down there. It was neat to have everyone together and this was Jake's first chance to get to know everyone. He fit right in and everyone loved him. It was a great and relaxing day.
Remember the U-Haul issue? As we were leaving my aunt gave us $20 for gas money and my Granny slipped us $100 for graduation money. Isn't God awesome? In every little way He has taken care of us. I hate leaving our church but I feel that this is what God wants us to do right now. So, Tulsa here we come!

It has been a few weeks, so I decided that I needed to post again.
Jake and I are 99.9% sure that we are moving to Tulsa over Christmas break. We will be looking for apartments (blech) next week. I do not look forward to the actual moving part. But I am excited as to what God will do with us. We haven't really broadcasted anything yet, I am scared to hurt people if anything changes.
I am loving my internship. I only have two weeks left. That makes me sad. I feel like I am a part of the school and this class. My current teacher has been really good in letting me handle a lot of what is going on in the classroom. I teach all but one subject now. It is fun and stressful :) She was gone for three days last week. So I was the teacher (there was a sub for legal reasons but I was in charge). It was a lot of fun and definitely the most realistic view of teaching that I have had so far. I go tomorrow to fill out paperwork with Tulsa Public. Hopefully I can get on for the spring! That would be a major blessing.
Jake and I are great. Sometimes it scares me how great we are. Does that make sense? Like this is too good to be true. Just you wait! Jake got Thanksgiving off at Wal-Mart (major blessing) so we will get to see our families. I am excited for the holidays to come.
Know that I am always reading your blogs. I don't always comment because I don't always know what to say. But I am thinking of you often and praying for you! Love you!
