Time To Let The Cat Out Of The Bag

Well, today was it! Got married? Nope, already did that..mmmmmm 14 years ago. Pregnant again? Nope, not sure we'll ever be blessed like that again. Adopted a baby? Nope, that fell through in February.... at least for now. What could be our big news????? It was John's last day on his current job.

John is working on the farm now and is a full time, year around employee of our farm!!! We are beyond excited! We had been praying for some time that God would show us where he needed to be. His company was closing it's door to short hauls and drivers being home nightly and only doing longer hauls when my parents offered him the position. We are beyond excited that he will get to be home more, lots more and tuck the kiddos in EVERY night. It also means he will be learning some new skills (more on pruning, thinning, fertilizing, spraying and those things that he has never had much to do with, until now). He already knows how to pick, haul, deliver and such. We also will be buying our first cows and our horizons will be expanded! He did take a cut in pay but not by much and we will save gas money and wear and tear on a vehicle too. We sold our old mini van and are back down to two vehicles so the savings on auto insurance will help too!

His schedule is much more flexible and that is a welcome! He also will be getting on with the county as a school bus driver. That will help with insurance cost and bring in an extra almost $800 a month. We are so blessed!!!! So, here's to our endeavor!
