My dh (Dean) is no longer working at the same church as before. Yet he *is* working at a church, as a Children's Director, helping a church revamp their Children's program. It is currently a 6mo. commitment. So while we are *technically* still a Pastor's family, the expectations & involvement are on a totally different level. I'll talk more about our beliefs regarding families and the church some time down the road ~ maybe :)
Did you know I was pregnant again? Yup, 6th lil' baby is on his way ~ due in July, but probably making an early entrance. It may just be the normal 1-week early that a c-section calls for, but it may be a few weeks.....it depends on the placenta. Due to this being my 6th c-section, plus the location of the placenta (near the old scar), it is possible we may be dealing with placenta accreta. I have a more detailed ultrasound planned for March 21st.

I refuse to worry until there's actually something to worry about! Well, I'm gonna try not to worry at all. There's nothing I or the doc's can do about it now anyway - we'll just keep an eye on things and possibly deliver a bit early (if so, there may be a hysterectomy as well...regardless, this will be our last lil' blessing by my womb ~ what a great God we serve!!)
|*New Business Cards*|
In addition to the part-time church gig, Dean has started a small business for Social Media Marketing (RTH Marketing ~ or check out his FB page) He is also starting with Primerica, an insurance company which "markets financial solutions to the middle market" by "providing common sense solutions to these families' financial challenges". (we so *definitely* fit into this "middle market" that it really hits home for us and we pray it will bless many!) Not to mention he is subbing at the local school systems & looking into other @ Home options, to help us simply pay the bills. He is a GOOD man and we are blessed to have him lead our family!!
What else? We are getting our upstairs insulation issues fixed next week (AMEN!), and then a painting project begins after that - do you have any idea how much damage one little 4yob & a ball-point pen can do?!? Ya...it's bad. Bad.
We are dreaming of spring, of summer, of bonfires & trails through the woods. We are dreaming of tree swings, tree houses & a possible pond "beach" with real sand! Sprinklers, lazy afternoon hammock time, and bike rides. Catching fireflies and caterpillars and tadpoles. Oh my goodness....warm weather, please come quickly!!
