Pete is a Pistol

For those of you that did not already know, Kevin and I got a new puppy a few weeks ago. As if we need more to do, right? He is a doll and has become the new entertainment in our lives. His name is Pete and he is a Boxer/Lab mix that we adopted from the Tulsa Boxer Rescue Foundation. We picked him up in Stroud on the same day that we got home from a trip to Chicago and he has been a trip since then. We really wanted a new puppy and when Kevin found Pete and his litter mates on a website he declared that we had to get one! Kevin came up with the name and it suits Pete very well. He is all black with a spot of white on his chest, his back feet, and right under his bottom lip. He looks most like a boxer and we are very anxious to see what he will look like when he gets bigger.
He gets along with Sophie quite well although it did take a little while for her to warm up to him and he seems to get along with my parents dog even better. We thought that it would be a good idea to get Sophie a freind now that she is older and especially because the baby will be here soon and will take up much of our attention. He is truly a daddy's puppy! I have never seen a dog become so excited about seeing someone as Pete gets when Kevin comes home from work. He loves to chase and pounce and will eat anything that he can get his teeth on.
I am so glad that he came to be with us and I am very excited that he will grow up with our baby! I will post a picture as soon as possible, unfortunately all the pictures that we have taken are on mom and dad's camera. I'll get one up soon!

A post for Matthew

So, it has be brought to my attention, by the people that love me the most :) that I have been slacking off on my blogging duties. Seeing as how I have many people out of the town of Tulsa that need updating on our exciting lives, I thought that it might be time I clue everyone in.
Most of the reason that I have not been faithful to this thing is the overwhelming test that I had to prepare for and take on Friday. One of the hoops that I have to jump through in order to graduate with my degree is spending an entire day in a room with other potential graduates pecking away at a computer to answer questions that cover material we have learned throughout the entire program. I have spent the last month preparing for this test and to my surprise and relief, it was not nearly as bad as I had made it out to be! It should be 4-5 weeks before I get the results and if I pass then the only thing I have left to complete before graduation in December is an independent reading with one of my professors. So, I'm one step closer to the end of the road, thank God!
I plan on adding to this blog each day this week so that I can catch everyone up on all that has been going on. Check back for more fun news! Love ya all......Jess
