I'm excitedly moving into a different stage of life this week. As most of you know, I'm a SAHM, but I'm also a soil scientist. Since having children, I have a home office and I work part-time. The situation has been ideal since Michael went back to school full-time and we really needed the extra income.
As you can imagine, adding homeschooling to the mix, and with Josiah getting involved in more things, it has been pretty tough to get my hours in everyday. However, God's timing is perfect in our lives. With Michael graduating soon, it is taking some pressure off. Things have been slowing down in my job, so I called my boss (he's the greatest boss and such a blessing) and asked if I could work on an as needed basis. That worked out great for him, too. He doesn't have to give me busy work, just to keep me working and I don't have to work unless I'm needed. He said when he did have work for me, I could work it into my schedule however I wanted. PTL!
For the last two days, I've enjoyed working in the yard, doing a few crafts with my son, really focusing on some new homeschooling concepts, and playing soccer in the backyard. It has been wonderful! I've even folded laundry in the middle of the afternoon instead of in the evening. It was so weird, but I can get used to it. I know we are going to have to be even more careful with our finances, but it will be worth it. God will work out the kinks if we are faithful with what he's given us. Just had to share my good news.
