We have been in a season of preparation and waiting since April. First, we prepared ourselves for the news of Cory’s interview. Would he get the new job or not? He did. Then we prepared to move. That preparation was probably the most physically taxing! We cleaned and packed and prepped. Then we made the move. We returned a little over a month later for another round of packing and cleaning.
Once in our new/old state, we worked on settling in and finding some sort of routine. Not easy! Then we prepared for Cory to start his job and find yet another new rhythm without Daddy at home during the day. With that mission accomplished, we prepared for a second year of homeschooling. It was important me that I have a clearer plan this year, and I feel pretty good about that plan.
We are still in the process of selling our Florida house, and we are making progress on finding a new home. This waiting and preparation is hard emotionally and mentally because real estate is such a roller coaster. But we are doing the best we can to wait and prepare in an “it’s out of our hands” kind of way.
And now…we are finally ready to prepare for the most exciting change of all. We are getting ready for BABY #4. We are sorting and washing and organizing as we prepare for our newest baby…
