Family Update

We are doing pretty well. This year of school is almost done. Thursday is the last day for Jackson and Lainey. Pete and I are still looking for work, though I am seriously considering going back to school for nursing. Pete has finished his meds and is doing better, his still trying to regulate himself back to what life was before.

He is definitely changed since the hospital. he seems more sensative to some things. We are both really starting to feel the stress of the current situation. I just need someone to take a chance on me or on him or both.

I have been going back to church more regularly and taking the boys. Jackson loves his primary class. Devri, you are wonderful for sending those quiet books and the board books and Legacy and the Testaments, I love those movies, and the support helps so much.

Pete says he will go with me if I need him to, but I don't want to make him do anything. He will come when he is ready.

It helps that one of the moms at Jackson's school that i have talked to quite a bit is in my ward. Those boys will probably hang out quite a bit. I still feel so out of place its crazy. Some of the older ladies have been telling me that my boys do a little better each week. They seem very supportive. Luckily I also know a few people from previous employment. Just a few familiar faces help. I have been sitting on a row either in front of or behind another family with small children. The books go back and forth over the bench. She shares with us and we share with them. I really need to get her name.

Hang in there, Em...job hunting is never fun, and with all the added stresses you've been experiencing, I can't imagine it's been a great experience. Hopefully you will be able to look back and see great blessings and goodness coming from this time.

What ward are you in? James' parents are in the 2nd ward.

Oh, EM!!! I am so proud of you! What a hard first step. But you did it! Be strong and you will be blessed.

Good luck with the jobs.

Good luck to you! You will definitely be blessed when you put the Lord first in your life. Also, good luck if you decide to go back to school. I think that is a wonderful idea!
