We're Back!

Hey everyone!
Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. We have been back for 2 weeks and it has been a whirlwind! We have already moved into our house (seeing as how we weren't expecting to move into the house till August sometime) and have been to Dallas and back with our truck.
We are enjoying our vacation time but it is going by way too fast! We haven't had just one day to sit and relax really or go somewhere to camp or 'explore' but things should be slowing down pretty soon.

As far as jogging as been, I have been about 5 times with Sarah and have been trying to motivate myself to get back into the habit! We average 2.5 miles now and she is doing so well! Today we did the Greenwood trail and it was so beautiful. Jake goes with us also and he is such a great motivator to the both of us.

I might as well let ya'll know about our little puppy we were going to bring into our family this week. I had been in contact with the breeder since March. It has been a wonderful and anxious 4 months of waiting and planning to be able to meet Copper. I know this may seem silly to you all but Jake and I had already fell in love with him.
Monday I had called the breeder 5 times and left some voice mails because we were going to come out to the farm this week and meet him but I could never reach her. I had been to TJ Max and bought some items for him and already painted 'his' room in our house. Tuesday was our move in day with the movers and that morning the breeder called me with the most devastating news. She said that the puppies didn't make it. She was very upset and kept apologizing and I kept saying it was alright, I mean what else was I going to say? After we got off the phone I just balled. I knew I looked silly but it hurt so much to know that our little puppy that we already fell in love with hadn't made it. The vet said that it had just been to hot for the little ones.
I know it wasn't our little Copper and one day we will bring Copper home but it still hurts me even right now as I type this I just want to crawl into bed and cry. I know when I tell people it is just really awkward because they just look and me and think it's 'just a dog' but really, it wasn't. Not to me.  This morning on the trail, Sarah and I ran by an older golden and my arms just started to hurt from wanting to just drop down and hold it.
Please don't think I'm pathetic...I'm just so devastated...

Anywase, after that happened I have been just up and down this week. I know God had a plan for our little family but right now it just hurts so much.

Besides all of that we are happy to be home and are excited to see where God is taking us.
Hopefully talk with ya'll again soon.
Sorry this was a depressing/random post!
