Just the summer we wanted....

            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.....


  1. It always seems that any change in schedule and blogging is the first to go! Since Simeon's surgery I've had barely any time to read blogs. I barely get one post out per week. Now that summer is here, I'm finding that same thing...a different schedule, places to go, things to do.

    Life takes over.

    SO glad things worked out for your husband (and for you)

    Love your header picture!!

  2. Kari,

    Your novel will be published soon!! That is so exciting. I can't wait to read it. You will have to share all your publishing knowledge with me.

    My NaNoWriMo novel is still languishing in a computer file somewhere waiting to be edited. I did get my other children's novel professionally edited though. I am hoping to get that published before too long. I hope your children will share it.

    I am wondering if you're missing having Tim home for the holidays now he is no longer teaching. It must seem strange having him away from home while you are all relaxing and enjoying the summer. So glad to hear things have got off to a good start with the new job.

    God bless!

  3. Jamie Jo-

    Thank you so much for your prayers for my husband and his unemployment. I am praying for you and your family as well, that God will be with you and bless you and those beautiful children!

    Thanks again, Kari

  4. Sue-

    I am not sure I have much publishing knowledge. God has put the right people on my life at the right time, so things have worked out without my really knowing how.

    I am definitely interested in your children's book and am anxious to purchase it. Please let me know when it is available.

    Blessings to you!

  5. Kari,

    I could probably have my manuscript ready within a couple of weeks. It has already been professionally edited. I just need to do the revisions. But... I think my sister is going to do some illustrations. This might take her some time but I think they will be well worth waiting for. They will really enhance my story. I'm excited by the thought of sharing our writings!
