Long Time No See

I haven't updated my blog for a long time. A LOT has happened in that past couple of months. Let's see... So in May my Grandma Ila Rae Riley passed away. One of the hardest times in my life. It was really fast and no one saw it coming. We found out that she had cancer. 3 or 4 different types of cancer. Ovarian, Uterine, and colon cancer. They were able to get two of them earlier but one of them spread throughout her body. She did chemo which made her really sick.She got an infection in her leg that she couldn't fight. She passed away May 17, 2015. She was a wonderful women. I miss her so much. A little after we found out grandma had cancer, We found out we were pregnant. We were so so happy!!!We have waited a long time to hear this wonderful news. A couple months went by and we found out that we had lost the baby. My heart was broken into a million pieces. Another one of the hardest things I have ever had to go to. I felt like crap. I thought I was broken. There were so many people that comforted our family. Unfortunately,  there were some that were really rude and not compassionate at all. You never know what someone is going through and how they are feeling.   I definitely found out who really cared about me. This was a loss. A huge loss. I never thought it would happen to me. It did. I have definitely learned about myself and the love from heavenly father. They helped me understand that everything will work out. I had to put so much faith in God to get through these events that were so close together. I am so grateful for the plan of salvation. I am so happy that I have this wonderful gospel in my life. I am happy that I get to be with my family FOREVER and see my again. WOW. This gospel is wonderful. I love this gospel. It makes me sad that there are some people that I know that don't believe in our church anymore. It makes me really sad.  There are times when things are thrown so hard at us, but the Lord will never leave our side. He is the one that carries us through. My testimony has been tried, but it has been strengthened. Stronger than ever!!!
In July, Preston and I went to Washington DC. It was so much fun! I had so much fun showing Preston around :) I will post about our trip later!
Before our trip,  Preston and I put an offer on a house. A couple of days later, we found out they accepted our offer!
So we closed the on the house the day we got back from our trip!
We LOVE our new house :) We will post pictures soon! I will write about our story when I have more time. But I just wanted to give an update. We also went to our ward the first time, and it was actually really good. I was worried.  But it was good!
August, I started my teachers training and we start school at the end of the Month! Can't believe school is already going to start! LETS DO THIS (Again)
