She ate meat!

Claire is a very picky eater.  I don't make her special meals or cater to her, but that is just how she is.  She has to try one bite and if she doesn't like it she doesn't have to eat it, but she doesn't get anything else.  We have 3 meals and 2 snacks per day so she doesn't starve, she just waits for the next mealtime. She especially doesn't care for meat.  She will eat chicken nuggets or bacon, but that's about it.  I think she doesn't like the texture. 

Tonight, dinner was roast chicken, potato pancakes, biscuits and mixed veggies.  She ATE the chicken!!  AND said it was good!  I'm in shock. 

Excuse me while I go get some smelling salts ...


Well, Daddy has not found a job yet.  While back for Easter he had a call from an old client asking him to do some work on her house.  What a blessing ... so he has been doing that for the last week. 

While in Charleston he talked to many, many companies and did not have any offers that he could support our family on.  So now we are stopping and thinking.  We felt very led to move, the doors seemed to be opening ... were we wrong?  Do we just need faith?  Or do we need to focus on where we are? 

It does seem like as soon as we started getting ready to move we started finding things here.  We are still looking down there, but nothing looks promising at the moment.  But we need to figure out something.  We told our landlady that we were planning on moving and she said she would like to come back here and live in this house.  Whoops!  I guess I need to back either way and just pray, pray, pray.

We had a wonderful Easter weekend.  Daddy was home and had a fun egg hunt in the yard and enjoyed a delicious meal at my grandmother's house.  Just had a few pictures to share!

One Week Without Daddy

It's been one week. 

We are adjusting.  Well, mostly.  Chandler has been more emotional then usually.  The last two days have been multiple tantrums and extreme affection.  Claire has been very verbal with missing Daddy and everytime we talk to him on the phone she asks when he will be home.  That kills him.  He's missing us very badly.  He really relies on us as a support system and it's hard for him.  But bonus is he's coming back for the weekend!  Hurray! 

He's search has been going well so far.  He has talked to numerous companies and handed out many resumes.  He has two men who said they would try to call him today to set up an interview and two who said next week.  Praying that one of them pans out!  I'm to thankful for his brother who is letting him stay there for free while he is looking for work.  I just can't wait until we are there with him!
