Am I really old enough to be an Aunt again?

Today my brother Tyler and his wife Brooke welcomed the newest addition to our family today Cooper! With my first nephew it just didn't seem to fit but it is definitely hitting me this time. Heavenly Father has blessed my family today. My daddy doesn't cry often but he did today. The big brother Aiden was at home when I got to the hospital so I spent some time with the new baby then headed to see and of course help entertain him. 
I love being an Aunt
it just makes me see children of my own in the near future.

Crunch Time

In a little over a month I will be moving across the country to a state I have never even placed a foot in. I am moving to Rexburg, Idaho. I will be attending Brigham Young University-Idaho to study Family Consumer Science with a Teaching Certification and a minor in Marriage and Family Counseling. I want to change lives of others. I want to make a difference and share the journey I have lived with others. I like to take the saying find someone in better shape than you found them. I cant believe that my journey here at home will be coming to an end soon. I have enjoyed my time here, but I sure do miss school and all that comes with it. I miss having to be independent. I have someone here who will call and make a doctors appointment if I need one,  someone to cook for me, drive for me, manage money for me, and so much more. I want those responsibilities back. I look forward to meeting to new friends, learning my way around Rexburg, growing spiritually, being a student that attends a university that is supported and funded by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and along the way scattering my sunshine and sharing my journey with those who choose to join.
