I thought summer time would afford me hours and hours to read blogs and write blogs and surf the ‘net to my heart’s content. As it turns out, summer has somehow been both busy and relaxing, so far. The kids and I are keeping busy with books and crafts and friends and fun. There is no strict schedule to keep to, no big to-do list to work through, no real agenda dictating our every day. Still, there has been little time for blogging and even when I have had the time it seems there is so much I could write about I am slightly overwhelmed by it all.
So for now, just a quick update to assure you we are doing well--
Tim is well into his second week at his new job and he is really enjoying. He is much, much busier than he ever expected and is working late some nights to try to get on top of all the projects they have for him. The work is definitely in his chosen field and is giving him valuable experience and interesting challenges. Just as I should have known all along, God knew what He was doing sending Tim there.
I have some very exciting news concerning my novel but I think I will hold off on any official announcements for another day or two…suffice to say publication is coming SOON!!!!
The kids are all keeping themselves busy playing amazingly imaginative games and making amazingly imaginative messes all over my house. They are getting along pretty well, and are thoroughly enjoying their summer break from formal school work.
Overall, we are having just the kind of summer we were hoping for.... one where the bills are paid :), the kids are happy and healthy, and Tim and I are, for the most part, content with life.....
