There has been a lot going on. Nothing all that huge, but there is always something that keeps us busy!
Last weekend we had a garage sale at my mom's house. That is always a project. It was mostly my sister Lana's things, but i had a couple garbage bags of things to get rid of so I priced them an added mine in.
I had a thought that perhaps Lana & I could start a project and make a little money repurposing some furniture. We found couple of old chairs at a garage sale, cleaned them up, I showed her how to chalk paint & we had a project day where we painted some things she had been wanting to paint and these two chairs.
We have had zero interest from anyone in purchasing them. Sigh. I guess that wasn't an idea that will take off.
I got some more furniture at garage sales this weekend I want to paint up. James & Brooke might take some if they have room in their apartment after the wedding.
The wedding is just 2 months from today!
Graduation is this coming weekend!
The pursuit of entry with the Indiana Police Academy has been cut off. James got the notice this week that he wasn't moved on to the next level. So, he is job searching. Brooke has a job set up in Mishawaka where they think they are going to start out.
Lots of prayers going up for this.
Zach returned from his trip to California for 2 weeks. It went well. He is doing okay. He is moving slow, but God is at work. He is saying lots of the right things. Just praying for the grace to keep going forward.
Leah has prom this coming weekend. And I will miss it because I will be at James' graduation.
Things have been rough with Kiahna. I was talking to a woman at a garage sale last weekend about her. I made the comment that I was considering talking to Gateway woods about if anyone would be willing to keep her for longer periods of time for respite care. She commented on a family I should call. I did that on Saturday & I am meeting with them on Tuesday to see if they would be willing to keep her for a long weekend. Like this coming one. Or the wedding one. Hoping an answer to prayers that I am not sure that I even uttered.
Photography is going slow. Praying for that too.
