Update

Wow! Matt has updated our website and did a great job! Hopefully we will be much better about updating our website and blogging a little more.

We moved back last fall into a quiet subdivision just north of Chattanooga. It is great! We have a large backyard that the kids can play and run around in. We love it hear. It is a little bit of a drive into work and church but well worth it.

In January, Matt's position with the company he had been with for almost 10 years was eliminated and he spent over 5 months looking for work. Thankfully, in June he got a job with a company and is able to work from home now. This was a short term contract that will be up at the end of August but we are praying that it becomes more permanent within the next couple of weeks. Working from home has been very helpful this summer with Caleb being home.

I am still working and will be there four years at the end of this month. I enjoy my job and am thankful that God has blessed me with this job. It does get a little lonely driving into work by myself, but it gives me quiet time and a lot of time to pray. :)

Caleb starts school tomorrow (I don't think he is all that excited about it). He will be in 5th grade and he is starting a new school since we have moved into a new school zone. We met his teachers last week and I think they are going to be great! He enjoyed spending some time with his Papaw this summer riding his new 4 Wheeler thanks to his Papaw Albert. He was also able to go spend some time with friends and go swimming. In June I took him tubing for the first time and he loved it! He actually ran off and left me. LOL

We are trying to get Nathan into pre-k with the county here but we have to take him back for another evaluation and wait on them to make a decision. We are praying that they approve him to start pre-k so he can be ready for school next year. On Friday we took him for a hearing test and found out that he has mild high frequency hearing loss. We knew this was a possibility when he was a baby because that was one of the risk from a chemo drug he was given. It didn't make it any easier to hear though. Thankfully this will not impact his day to day conversations. We just have to go back every 3 months to have him monitored and to make sure that it doesn't get worse.

Anna is growing and doesn't act like a 2.5 year old at all. She is so mature for her age and doesn't have any problems keeping up with her brothers. She loves shoes and clothes. Her daddy thinks I have a lot of shoes... He is going to be in some serious trouble when she gets older (he actually already is). We are hoping to get her potty trained soon! I do worry about her if Nathan does go to pre-k because she has always been with him and she misses him when he isn't at daycare with her.

We are so thankful for all that God has done for us and what He is doing in our lives. We have so much to be thankful for!

I pray that each person reading this is doing well and may God bless you!
