I'm back!

My attempt at keeping up has flopped.  Here are the updates:

Nathan - still looking for a new job.  He has had an interview in Nebraska.  We drove down there a few weeks ago and haven't heard anything yet.  He has an interview in South Dakota this coming week.  God is moving!  We are just waiting for the door to open wider! 

Me - I am still doing homeschooling, quilting and started crocheting a little again.  I had just told Nate I was going to get rid of all my yarn and needles...maybe not quite yet. 

Jman - He has had teeth problems.  We went to Bemidji in January to visit cousins Rachel and dentist Bob.  He had one cavity filled.  He didn't' make it long enough to get both filled nor to have x-rays taken.  This coming Friday he is having same day surgery to get the cavity filled and possibly 2 crowns put on.  A pain, but he doesn't sit still enough in the dentist's chair to have it done in the office.

BG - He was uneventful until 2 weeks ago.  We had a run-in with the la-z-boy and ended up with a dislocated elbow!  He was down and out for about a day and a half, but he's back to his normal self!

Lulu- She's crawling like she's Michael Andretti.  She is fast!  I have to keep an eye on her...she can open up drawers and cabinets and likes to unroll the toilet paper now.  She doesn't have any teeth, but she is certainly working on them. 

The house - We have started the bathroom remodel.  Which includes attempting to make concrete countertops.  Attempt #1 was with the sink made out of concrete.  It did not work out.  (Nate is starting a blog about our home remodeling projects, so you can visit it once he gets it up and running!)  Attempt #2 was without a sink.  It didn't have as many pock marks left over from bubbles, but it cracked while we were taking it out of the form.  Needless so say, Nate was not happy.  We are back at the drawing board for the countertop now.  I'm ready to get the countertops out of the basement...we made them in the storage space.  ALL of our boxes and what-nots are out in the living room area.  I get stressed out going down there, so I'm avoiding it like the plague!  I need to get it cleaned up!! 

As for the rest, we are doing great!  God keeps blessing us and we keep praising Him!
