Well, the livin’s not so easy, but it is summertime and it is quickly fleeting. After July 4th is over, you are just on a fast track to school starting.
Speaking of school, we have finally worked out the school plans for our 3 older children for the coming year. We are sending them to a Lutheran school about 5 minutes from our home. We are really glad to have worked out some things with them to make it more affordable for us, and we think it will be a good fit for our kids. We are thankful for God’s provision in all this, and now we can talk openly with our kids about where they will go, etc. Since we were uncertain for about 4 months, we have tried to just not confuse them with all the possibilities.
I am also gearing up to do some work. I hope to market myself for some writing projects that will bring in some helpful income. While I am working on developing some new software skills and getting together some marketing plans, I hope to work for a temp agency. I applied with a local one today, took their skills tests, and I am officially on their list of people to assign to temp jobs. We’ll see . . .
That’s what’s on my mind this week . . . Oh, and Mark and Calvin are heading to Mexico on a missions trip with a group from our church. They leave Saturday. Please pray for the entire team to have a safe trip and effective ministry opportunities while they are there. You might think to pray for my sanity while they are gone too.
