our lives are about to change

Well, a new chapter is about to begin for us. I am going for a job interview tomorrow. I haven't worked a day in 8 years, and it's time! I feel so blessed to have been able to spend every day with my kids and watch them grow up but it didn't come without a price. The sacrifices that we have made financially have been big but so worth it. I think working will help me with my self confidence to finally have a paycheck with my name on it as proof of my hard work. Motherhood is hard work and yes, your kids health and happiness is payment enough, but it will be so nice to have money to contribute to the family, as well. Wade starts preschool this fall and it's 4 days a week, all day. He's so bored at home, now and I know he needs more stimulation and somewhere to direct his energy. I will have to have someone watch him for me on Fridays but I know Moms do it all the time. I am trying not to get my hopes up for this job, but it's really hard. I am confident that I am the best person for this job and I'm going to do my darnedest to prove it. :)
The kids just finished another session of swim lessons. Wade is on the brink of taking off all alone. He can already swim about 5 feet underwater. He is doing so well. Katie is ready for the second swim team. She has really surpassed my expectations. Well, I'm going for now. I'll post later about the job situation. In the meantime, if you are reading this, say a prayer!

So, if you are reading this.. I hope you enjoy a glimpse inside our home and maybe get a good laugh or two.. :)
