Catch up

So, a little catch up is in order. For starters, my sister, Caryn is doing alright. Unfortunately, there is a medical issue, and it's the cause of her miscarriage. However, we are hopeful that, based on the numbers we're seeing so far, that she will recover without any aggressive medical treatments, and be able to try starting their little family within about 6 months to a year.

In other news, we are on a job hunt again. Dave's a contractor, and the company he is contracted to, decided to give him an out date about 3 months earlier than expected. Ok, so we look at new jobs, THEN they decide, never mind, we'll have you stay until the original date. THEN, they kind of, so to speak, guilt trip Dave into maybe staying, since they fought to keep him. Well, in my humble opinion... that's BOLOGNA. You don't tell someone their job is ending in 2 months, then make them feel bad for setting up interviews. Jerks. So, at any rate, Dave had an interview today that we are hopeful will possibly work out to be one of those kinds of jobs that you actually stay at for a LONG time. Like, one you could even see yourself retiring from. So, we'll feel our way through the mystery and trust God to open and close all the right doors.

The kids are great. We are ALL so happy for the nice spring weather. Hannah and Spencer are so happy to be outdoors again. In fact, I think Spencer's favorite new pass time is to swing. He probably played on that swing for 30 minutes straight after school today. They've also figured out how to JUMP off the swings...so I predict we'll have our first broken bone this summer at some point. :)

I've gotten so sub at Mom's Day Out a few times this month. It is a super fun job and I am really looking forward to working there
next year. I love getting snuggles from the kids and some of the things they say are just priceless. And getting paid to play with 4 and 5 year olds for 6 hours a day, 3 days a week, isn't such a bad job, ya know? :)

Okay, I think that sums up a lot that's happening around here. Toodles.
