Exciting Prospects

Some amazing job opportunities have opened up for Jacob just this week and we could definitely use your prayers as he pursues them. We are very excited about the possibility of them working out, but also trying not to get overly excited in case nothing comes of it. It is an answer to prayer just that we've become aware of these openings and they appear to be perfect positions for Jacob considering what he did in the military and the plus of having a top secret clearance, so we are really hoping and praying that it works out! Of course, that also meant that we were rushing to try to get a resume together since he's never had or needed a resume before. So Jacob started writing down all the information and I worked on putting it all together in a resume format yesterday....and as of today, other then needing a few things added and some tweaking it's ready to go and we can move on to the next part of the process. It could take some time for anything to happen, but we have a friend on the inside who is really working to move things along faster for Jacob, which has been really helpful.

Also, this coming Saturday we're having a little get-together with some of the couples from our church and we're pretty excited about it! It'll be a good way to get to know some of them better and also just to have fun playing games with couples our own age. :) I'm also making some cake truffles, so it won't take long before everyone is on a sugar high! It also means I have some serious cleaning ahead of me...not that I don't clean regularly, trust me, with kids I feel like I'm constantly cleaning....but when we're having company I like to take a little more time and do things I might not do every single day. Like going through the toy boxes and making sure they're all put where they're suppose to be and that there are no crackers mixed in! :) Today I'm working on scrubbing up any chocolate milk stains on the floor; I try to clean them up as they appear....and believe me, they appear quite often, multiple times a day if that explains things any better....but sometimes I don't notice them or in other cases they need more serious work. So, yes I have a busy day ahead of me, but I've still been able to hurray for me! Speaking of stuff to do....I better get with it!
