Life comes with good news and bad....so I'll start with the bad news first. Matt lost his job today along with many others. We were expecting this but weren't certain. He will receive a severance package so that is the upside. The other upside is that we are almost certain Matt is the only person interviewing in Dallas this Thursday with DSI(another pharmaceutical job). His territory is based in Monroe so this would mean we wouldn't have to move and the start date is July12....so this would be a HUGE blessing if he gets offered the job. We are continuing to pray for God's guidance and know that his plan is much bigger than ours!
The GOOD news is(drum roll please).......Jake is doing well is swim lessons. I don't expect him to be swimming by the end of next week, but would like him to feel a little more comfortable in the big pool(as opposed to only wanting to swim in the baby pool). He cried some on the first day as did Landry Grace but today was so great I called mom and had her come for the last 10 minutes. When I say they are doing great I mean no crying...they are still very apprehensive in the water which is good. Hoping LG is swimming by the end of the lessons. She is my water baby. I am also proud of Jake, too!
Here they are before we left yesterday:
Giving me the "thumbs-up" before going to the pool...LG is doing the number 1. She can't quite manipulate that thumb!
Another boy in their class was screaming(as lots of kids do at first) and this was really upsetting them. This picture captures their anguish....
Day 2........all smiles as they head out to Mrs. Linda's
And LG loved it too!
Sitting and waiting patiently for their turn........
