So I was doing pretty well there with regular blog posts. What happened? What always does–life.
Mark has been crazy busy with work projects. One has a quick turnaround deadline, and it is sort of speculative. So pray he gets it done, and pray the $$ comes through.
Then there’s been all the kids’ stuff. The girls are taking swimming lessons; Nevin is taking wrestling; and Calvin only made it on the waiting list for fencing, but he’ll get in the next session in a month or so. Awana started for the the 3 younger ones three weeks ago, too. And, Evangeline has been to the dentist twice in the past 2 weeks. She had a toothache that turned out to be an abcessed tooth. She had to have it pulled, and she was very brave about it all. Then we took her back the following week for a cleaning and x-rays. It turns out she has 2 more cavities that will need to be filled. Oh, and the dentist informed me that we need to see an orthodontist. Yay! We have expected this with Nevin, but we were crossing our fingers that he would be the only one.
So in the midst of the nation’s economic crisis, life goes on. Nevin asked me today what we would do if the economic system collapsed. I told him we would be ok because we have practice with economic crisis. He laughed at my little joke, which I guess is a good thing since he understood what I was getting at, and yet it didn’t make him unhappy. (I also added that we would trust God and work for a solution, btw. )
