and it’s not because nothing has been going on at the Huffman house worth writing about. It’s that I don’t know where to begin!

The first bit of news I have to share is that my husband is changing jobs. I know that some of you are very sad about this, and there are aspects of it that make him sad as well. I know that he will miss the patients that he has cared for over the years. He will still be around though, helping out at the clinic and being involved in the community. He is very excited about being back in the hospital setting and is glad that he will be able to provide care for any of his patients that have to be hospitalized.

Now, may I tell you my favorite part about the new job? He will be on a 7 day on, 7 day off schedule. Now, I klnow that a lot of you have raised your eyebrows at him working 7 12 hour days, but 12 hour days are nothing new for him and that 7 days off is going to be great. He will be more involved with our homeschooling and he has plans to really get our farm up and running. The kids are looking forward to having lots of time to spend with their dad, and so am I. It is going to be a lifestye change for us and I am sure that some adjustments will have to be made, but we are excited.

We have a new little foster baby at our house. He’s so sweet! The question everyone asks me is, “How are you ever going to let him go?” The truth is, it will break my heart. I’ve had to let go before and it’s so painful. There really is no way to guard your heart. I have to hold on to the reality, which is, “This baby does not belong to me.”  At the same time, I need to love that baby like it does belong to me. (That’s the easy part for me) When it comes time to let go it will cost me a part of my heart, but I wouldn’t trade a single second of what I am doing.

So, job change, new baby and starting school next week. This year I will teach 5th, 3rd, and kindergarten. Yikes! I’m still having trouble imagining what it is all going to look like. The first few weeks will be a learning curve for me. I know that if we can get into a good routine everything will fall into place, so that’s what we will be working on. It might be kind of crazy at first, as most things are around here.

Well, this is short and sweet. There is much to do!
