Back to Family...

So, Robert did not get the special agent position that he interviewed for. There were a total of 6 people who applied and interviewed, including him. 4 other agents from his office and one agent from the Vicksburg office. One of the other agents from his office, Carrie, got the position. Congrats to Carrie!

Robert was a little disappointed, but is looking on the bright side. Although he did not get the position (which would have meant day shift), he is still going to try to go back to days. Probably in the next several weeks!

May not sound like much to some people, but to our family we believe it will make all the difference in the world! You see, my hubby has been on weekend nights (Th-Su 6p to 4a) since Robbie was a little less than a year old. So going on 4 years now!!! His mother has agreed to help us out, and until Evan gets a spot in Head Start, she'll watch Evan for us during the day and Robbie will get off the bus at her house in the afternoons. It really IS time for us to be a family, 7 NIGHTS A WEEK!

I am looking forward to dinner as a family, where Robert is no longer rushing to get out the door. And, with him being on M-Th, we'll have weekends together (except when I have to work) and won't have to cut short a visit or turn down a party or outing just b/c he has to get ready for work. :o)

I may complain about him a lot more than I should. But I love my husband and APPRECIATE the sacrifice he has made for our family. My children have never attended day care of any kind. And they are just fine! Robbie started Head Start last year at GES and LOVED it! He has also transitioned seamlessly to his new classroom at D'Iberville (Gilbert Mason Center) this year. We are hoping that Evan gets a spot soon as well.

I am forever grateful for my hubby and my babies. I love them with all my heart!!!

Just a short post to say that I will always hold to my belief that e.v.e.r.y. thing happens for a reason. We may not ever know those reasons, at least not until we see our Jesus face to face. But they are still reasons nonetheless...

My heart is heavy for the family and friends who lost such a bright light on Friday. I did not know him, but I pray that all who have been affected by the loss of Latrell Dunbar are granted a peace that passes all understanding...

At the same time, my heart is glad for a different reason. Just when I had resigned myself to giving up on ever finding a friend I haven't talked to in YEARS, VOILA! Facebook to the rescue... I stumbled across a post where my best friend was now "friends" with this person. And so I am happy to be reconnecting and catching up with a friend who knew me over half my lifetime ago.... :o)
