Yesterday I finished the Wilton course 1. It's amazing what you can learn in 4 weeks!

News on Phil

Phil started the week of work today with a physical and PT (physical training). He found out there are 3 BM1's there and only 1 position open to fill. The other two have already worked on boat crews before and have more time in then him by a couple years. Please be praying that if this is where God wants us to be, that He will make a way beyond all this! Thanks!!

Phil's in Virginia

It hasn't even been 12 hours since we dropped him off at the airport and I'm already lonely. It has been far too long since we've hard to be apart. Not that I'm complaining at all! I've felt it coming for days and tried to do everything I could to make the time feel easier, but today none of that seems to be helping. We've already spent most of the day at church but we still came home to an empty house. Joshua is adapting well so far. He cried at the airport thinking we had "lost daddy" and Jeremiah hasn't noticed the change at all yet. Phil was fortunate enough to be bumped up to first class this morning! He has landed and checked into his room. He has a vehicle to use while he's there and has heard some good news about the possibility about getting this job. I'll update you all when we know more!

Update #1

I started this little ditty a while ago but never kept up with it then got to realizing the other day that this could be a rather effective way to pass along information about us at your own pace. I can put up as much or as little as I like without worrying about bothering anyone by filling up your email boxes.
Things are quite crazy right now as we are preparing to make some major decisions for the next year or so of our family's life. Phil will be heading to Virginia next week for what will probably be a rather grueling week of tests and interviews, working and PT-ing (physical training). I will be finishing up my first course of wilton decorating which was a lot of fun. The boys will still be growing and learning and mostly loving life (until Mommy says no cupcake until tomorrow). Please be praying that we make a decision that is good for all 4 of us in the long run. Keep checking on here for more updates! I'll try to put up some pictures as well in the future as the boys go about life having fun.
