School has started and we have settled in to a fast paced routine, we call our daily life. The boys are settled in to their daily routines with school, and with any new routine comes some trials and tribulations, some failures and some successes. I also have many new aspects of my life that I have come to settle into. DH has accepted a new job, a job in the field that he went to school for and has his state licenses for, and has been applying for the past twenty years. So our lives have changed a lot but so far so good!
My Noah is in fifth grade and did not get the teacher we wanted but none the less he is having a great time and learning a lot. This teacher Mrs S is famous for being very passionate about science and area that Noah really loves. I am thinking he will have a great year.
Joel is a freshman in high school, and is a busy young man. He is on the pistol club and has started driver’s education and continues to participate in the high school band. I believe the only bad teenager is one with too much time on his hands, so far that is not something we need to worry about.
My DH is back in his chosen career field after nearly 20 years of trying. He has a set schedule and regular days off each week. We debated and prayed about this choice of accepting this position, while it is his dream job, it came with some draw backs, we lost some income, but in the end money is not as important as quality of life and a father being there for his family.
I have had to set up my income intake, so that is the big change in my life. I am currently a jack of many trades, and there are not a lot of full time jobs in this area. I have been pretty good about my meal planning, but when we are away from home I always make sure that I bring loads of snacks and our current favorites bars come from Zone Perfect.
that way we avoid the nasty expensive food from the drive through, and have something filling and nutritious.
