May 24 - Dantley helped me prune some trees. He is such a great little helper! Especially when we are working outside.
I screens hotted this text because I didn't want to actually send it to Jake because I didn't want him to feel like I was rooting against him getting the job in Kent. I just had had a feeling after he said that he had a voicemail that we weren't going to be moving. It was mostly a great sense of relief, but also a bit of sadness for Jake because it is never a nice feeling to know they chose someone other than you. In this case, they needed someone right away and Jake couldn't start for over a month, maybe two, the other guy could start the next day and wouldn't need to move as he already lived there. All in all, I don't think it was right for us to go, but it was right for us to go through the experience. Not sure why, and don't know if we will ever know why.
The kids invited the Scrivens kids over after school today. Tamsyn and Alanna have the most fun creating stories and their own little worlds with their amazing imaginations. Unfortunately today as they were sauntering out through the tall grass, Alanna had a reaction and they were forced to just play inside.
