I am so anxious that fall is right around the corner. It's one of my favorite times of year...take that back. It IS my favorite time of year! There's just something that sparks when you say the word "harvest". I love the colors and all the changes. The smells, the sights...did I mention the colors?! It's no wonder that we got married in the fall. It was such a beautiful time of year. To catch you up to speed on what's been going on in the Jacobus household I'll give you a little update! We're still waiting got hear about disability for Nate. I just called today and they're sending Nate's case to another psychologist for further evaluation. I'm hoping that's a good thing. I get to call in two weeks to see how things are coming so more on that then. We're just praying that he gets it because it would really change things for us. Aiva, Nate and I are going to preschool on Friday for orientation. She is so excited! Actually I don't know who's more excited, Aiva, me or Nate. She is so ready to learn more that it's been so hard to control her. Aiva and I are going shopping on Friday for some new school clothes and then we're going out to Friendly's for dinner. It's a mommy/daughter date. I try not to talk too much about it because she gets frustrated that she can't go NOW! Sound familiar moms? We just took Nate's truck today to trade it in and we finally got the check for the buy back. We got a little over 11 thousand for it. Amazing...it's truly a God thing. He's totally been blessing us! We test drove some cars today and Aiva and Ana made their choice for a new car well known. They picked the Honda Odyssey which has a DVD player with headphones in it. Wonder why they picked that over the CR-V??? I think we're going with the CR-V though. We like how it rides and we like the MPG. We're waiting for the check from Nate's truck to clear before we purchase anything though. Hopefully next week. Nate's already in mourning from his truck. He sounds quite pathetic. He's already asking how he's going to hull hay and a dear if he gets one. If he thinks he's gonna put it in the new car he has another thing coming!! I'm getting ready to switch to full time in two weeks which I'm so stoked about. I know when the time comes I might not feel the same way but with Aiva bouncing off the walls I'm more than ready! Things have been going great with the job. I've made some changes and implemented some new things so I'm looking forward to what's next. OK...I think that's it for now in our little world. More updates soon. Please keep Nate and this disability thing in your prayers. We would greatly appreciate it! Have a happy fall!

Well it's been too long since my last post so I have a lot to update you on. Nate is currently able to drive now. He had an EEG and it came back fine. The meds seem to be working just fine so praise God! He enjoys staying home with the girls but I can tell he's getting antsy! He's ready for something else to do besides childcare! We're still waiting to hear about disability. He had an appointment with a doctor for an interview for disability benefits so we're just waiting to hear if he qualifies. More on that later...We did find out that his truck is being recalled and Toyota wants to buy it back from us! Yeah!! We're in the process of trying to figure out what car we want to replace the truck with. I love having a car almost all paid off! Aiva is doing great. She is really looking forward to preschool. Every time we go to church she always asks. She is so pumped. Two more weeks and counting. She's also excited that her school is at my work. I think that makes her feel like a big girl that she gets to go to work with mommy! She's had a good summer. Nate took the girls to Nashville to see Grammy & Grampy for a week and had a ball. She looked so much older when she came back. I couldn't believe it. I almost though, "Where is my little girl?!" It was good to have her back though...did I say that out loud? I'm kidding. It was nice having a week to myself. And boy did I live it up! I had a ball...if I get the chance I'll fill you in! Ana is growing like a weed and talking up a storm. Her favorite word is no...surprised?! She is going to be pistol! I think Nate is looking forward to spending time with just her by herself. She is becoming quite the big girl too. She has almost caught up with Aiva in clothes. Hard to believe but true. OK...I must go. Olympics and Michael Phelps is on...More later!
