So things aren't so bad!

Well, my last post wasn't that great. But things really aren't all that bad. Yes, things can get difficult at times, but God has us here for a reason, and because of that, we are confident that we are doing what he wants us to do and things will get better in time.

We are planning to go to my Uncle Darwin's wedding this weekend in Midland, MI. It's only about a 4 hour drive from here - only about half as far as it was when we actually lived in MI! Anyway, we are looking forward to a couple of days out of the house! :)

Jozie lost her second tooth this week - on Monday. The new one was coming behind the baby tooth so I pretty much had to pull the baby tooth out because it just would not loosen. It was a little loose but every night it would tighten up again. She cried and I almost did ( it's not fun being the one to inflict pain on your baby!) but it came out and hopefully the other tooth will come into place where it's supposed to be now. She is due for a check up and cleaning with the dentist so that's going to be a goal for next week - to find a new dentist and make an appointment for each of them.

Bob found a new job this week! It's still driving a charter bus but they only do local charters to Chicago so he won't be gone overnight like with the last one. And he gets paid by the hour which is better than the mile like before so that means that he gets paid to just sit there - unlike that other place that he worked at before.

We are still looking for a house, we looked at yet another one the other day, I liked it but Bob didn't seem to think much of it. It had 4 bedrooms - 2 up and 2 down - a 2/4 bath upstairs and a full bath downstairs, a small living room, an eat-in kitchen, a large pantry, and a 3 season screen room on the back. There was a pretty large yard with a shed in the back of it with no back neighbors - there was an ally behind the house. But there was no basement or garage or central air - all of which are pretty important to Bob so I guess we keep looking. It was another cape cod.

School is about to begin again in a few months, we are going to start ACE (accelerated Christian Education) PACES this year with the kids. I am really hoping to start them both in first grade this year but I'm not sure Luke will be ready for it. I still have to call them and find out more about it. If he doesn't I may just use Abeka again with him this year seeing that I have most of it from Jozie last year. I will just supplement with a different writing curriculum because Abeka starts with cursive and Luke isn't ready for that yet.

So, that's our week, and ok, so things aren't going so bad! I was just having one of those days! :)

Hey Cousin, Glad things are looking up for you guys now! How awesome that Bob got a job! Sometimes we have to endure those hard times to get to the good times.
