Well, it's the night before the BAR. I'm sitting here with a bunch of mixed emotions but overall, I'm feeling good about everything. Both Austin and I have been super stressed the past six weeks and when I say super...I mean SUPER STRESSED. We have had more trials the past 6 weeks that have tried to break us down, but I feel like we've come out on top.

A few days ago we asked a few family members to join us in a family fast on Sunday to help and pray for Austin on this test. I want to thank all of you who participated in our fast because since the fast ended our stress levels have gone WAY down. Austin and I both talked about how we feel so much more at ease, still nervous, but just in a more calm way. I know this is an answer to many many prayers.

I know that Austin has put his blood sweat and tears into studying for this exam and I KNOW that Heavenly Father will help him recall the information he learned and know when to apply it. The exam is three days long beginning tomorrow for 3 hours, on to Wednesday for 6 hours and ending on Thursday for another 6 hours.

For those of you who would like to, feel free to continue to keep Austin in your prayers throughout this week, we could sure use the added support. I know that all of you are probably sick and tired of listening to me fret about this exam, but after this week I PROMISE I won't whine about being stressed about the exam anymore (i'll only whine about the time we have to WAIT for the scores!!!).

Anyway, we love you all and we are so thankful for all you do for our family whether it be helping out with our kids or just including us in your thoughts and prayers. I'll be sure to keep you posted on everything!!! (you know I will!)

All of you will be in my prayers. I will especially pray for Austin to have great recall of all the information he has studied so hard and so diligently. I admire him for his dedication and I admire you for your dedication as well. You have stood by him, encouraged and have never doubted him. I will also continue to pray once the bar is over that you will have patience during the long wait and that the time will pass quickly.
