Needless to say, the blog has not been on my list of priorities lately. We still continue to pray and seek God for where and what he has for us. We are waiting for the results of John's judicial review regarding the loss of his job at the tribe. We are thankful that he was able to get a job at Les Schwab right away, although it is less than half the salary he used to make. We continue to trust that God will continue to provide and see us through this hard time of our lives. We are preparing to sell our house-hopefully soon-this summer. We feel confident that God desires us to declutter our lives, our homes and prepare our family for change. More specifically, we are pretty sure this includes moving....out of this house within the community, in another city, another state and quite possibly another country....right now our focus is on the first step of decluttering our lives and finances. This is scary and exciting all at the same time. We covet your prayers!
It has been very hard for me. John is working what seems like more hours, for less pay and its extremely physical work so he is beat when he gets home. This means that not only do I have my usual mom/wife things to do each day, but now I have tackled many of our household update/remodel projects. Let's not forget to add the college class and church obligations into the mix! It's been very stressful and taxing. I have been cutting back on many of my outside activities merely because I can't do it all.
On other news, the kids are doing wonderfully. The girls will be done with preschool this week and Jeremiah will be done with First Grade next week. Judah has been potty training and has done beautifully. He is completely out of diapers and his only accidents are when he has to seems it's better for him to stand next to the toilet to poop rather than sit on the toilet! Oh well! He will figure it out sooner or later. Jeremiah is loving Little League and he is doing really well. I just got Alison signed up for Whiffle ball for the month of June and she is so excited.
Well...we shall see how long it takes me to update the blog next....and what exciting things will have happened!
