** Ethan has been in preschool for about a month. He is adjusting very well and his language is really taking off! He is saying all sorts of things. The attention span on the other hand could be a bit longer.
** After a lot of thought and prayer we have decided to rent a house in a nearby city. We will be moving in about 3 weeks. So excited to move. The house is near our church, has a backyard for Ethan and Chatzski, a garage to store all of our stuff and we will have a washer and dryer (no more coin operated laundry). The story about finding this house is pretty cool. Maybe I will blog about that in a future blog.
** The dreaded March 15th deadline has now past (or will in a just a few hours) and I am relieved to know I have not gotten a "pink slip." Which means I will have a job for next year. Although I am deeply saddened as some of my closest friends and co-workers received "pink-slips."
** After months of searching and applying, my youngest sister found a job and it is in the San Diego area. So "N-Tee Sam" (Ethan's name for her) will be moving into our new house with us.
**Our youth group trip was a great success and the kids had a great time playing in the snow! Thanks for all the prayers.
** My mom and I celebrated our birthdays recently. It was really more of a surprise to celebrate her birthday. It was such a fun day. My mom had been wanting an updated family photo for a few years now. So we finally got around to it for her party.
