Our family is a growing!

By one car that is!! (please tell me I got at least one person on that!) And by car I do in fact mean Van.  That is right we bought a van.  There is a long list of stories that go a long with why so lets start back at the beginning :)

A while ago Derek had an interview with the Utah Grizz.  We did not hear back from them so we did not think much of it. 

About a month ago now he got a call asking him to come back for an interview.  So he went in and the job sounded perfect for my husband.  The job was to help the community love hockey and plan events for the games.  Go to schools and do assemblies.

They called him back and offered the job on a Friday and wanted him to start the coming Monday.  So we talked about it and got excited and then realized all the CRAZY amount of things that would need to be done to have him work.  We felt great about the job as long as he could wait a week to start. 

So he accepted and we had to find sitters for our daughters and another car since he needs a car for his job, and i needed a car to transport the kiddos.  So we went car looking and found HOW much car prices have gone up since we bought our car last year.  I was shocked.  So i decided why not just buy a van they cost the same as a car right now.  So we did it.  We want another kid in a year or it made sense.  I LOVE having a van can i just say! Its so nice to have a bigger car and one that can hold others if needed!

We were lucky and able to find some sitters for the girls and they seem pretty happy with them :) I switched my Tuesdays and Thursdays to half days so i could take Jackie to preschool and be home with them more.

Oh also did i mention, i got a promotion at work?  They made me supervisor which means my raise will pay for our extra car payment! YAY for things finding a way for working out.

Derek is still working his other job and being superman doing both....we figured why not we could use the extra money to pay down some debt.

This week has been crazy and hectic i DO hope it slows down a bit and feels more normal as we all adjust.  Good news is, my kids still love me :) they don't hate me for sending them to a sitters.

I am so grateful for the Lord and to know he is watching out for us. 

So to wrap up i am not pregnant, Derek has a new job, our life's are crazy but we are happy!
