He's back!

So he's back and he had a good time for the most part. Apparently they were singing songs alot and his voice is very crackly! He sounds like his voice is changing though, I think its cute. He would hate for me to say that though...

He did pretty well. He got to be better friends with some of the other boys at school including one he was actually fighting with just a week ago. It's a wonder how relationships change when you are stuck in a cabin with someone for a week.

Apparently they were a little naughty though. He can sometimes get into trouble especially when you get him up in the woods.

He did post in his own blog today about his week. You can read it at his blog. Remember he has difficulties writting so sometimes can be difficult to read. I haven't read it yet though as he is writing it right now as I am writing mine!

Also Kelly gave his 2 weeks notice at work today for his moving up to Alaska. He was really nervous about it last night and most of the day. He wasn't sure how they were going to take it. It actually went really well. He waited till the end of the day and asked to speak to his boss. His boss did ask him if he could stay to the end of the month though as they are really busy right now. Which he said would probably be okay. Also his boss used to live in Alaska and still knows alot of people in the field that Kelly works in. He said that he would give him some phone numbers and talk to some of them himself. Also he said that if it didn't work out he would have a job waiting for him if he came back!

Honestly that last part was kind of a releif. This is what I want I really want to move, we just really need to get out of this state. I need to get out of my job and Izzak out of the schools here. Although I feel strongly that this is where we are supposed to go I still have that fear in the back of my mind that something could go wrong and just knowing he would have a job to come back to if that happened is a big weight of my mind.

Anyway I know that several of you are wanting me to post my wedding story. I am working on it and may have it done this weekend, no promises though okay!

Okay now I have a question for you. I really enjoyed the posts about Izzak growing up until now it was fun reflecting on his past. I think I would like to do that for the other kids but don't think that I would do it one day after another like Izzaks space it out more, you know? Anyway is anyone interested in seeing that also? The other kids really liked seeing my posts about Izzak and have asked if I will do it for them as well. I would probably break it up though to a post a week or something like that though.

9 people had something to say:

Anything you wirte, I am sure we would love to read! You seem like such a good mommy, and would love to hear about the kiddos!

Beccy said...

That must be a relief to know that you have a job to come back to just in case...

A weekly post about the children sounds like a great idea. You'll still have time to post about other things as well as having one day sorted with posts about the children.

So relieved your husband has an understanding boss and good to know there will be a joy still waiting.

Understandable your concerns for your imminent move to Alaska - I am so so envious. Both you and your husband have obviously thought a great deal about this move and one can only be delighted for you all - as you venture out.

Yes, I think it would be a wonderful idea if the other children too, had a similar set up of birthday events over the years.

It was so exciting to see Izzak over the years and can understand their enthusiasm for same.

Hope you all have a great weekend and chill-out from the working week.

I'm glad he is home ok!

If your heart is telling you Alaska- then I think that is where you should be! I'm sure things will work out for you there. (way too cold for me)

I think that is a cute idea about the kids. Give one day a week devoted to them or something.

sounds like a good idea! You have a natural talent for writing!! I enjoyed your stories about Izzak and I'm sure I'll enjoy the stories about your other munchkins!! (c:
I'm so glad that things are working out for you guys to move North. You'll have to stop in the Okanagan on your way thru to the North!! would be fun to meet all you guys!

Heather and Peter, while Kelly is leaving at the end of this month the kids and I will be waiting until August, just to much to get done here and Kelly can get things settled and get settled in his job up there.
Of course I will continue the blog scene, right now I couldn't imagine letting it go! I love blogging and the people I meet

Thanks Terri, so relieved - what would blogging be - without you!!

When a friend of mine chose to emigrate to Canada in the 1980s - I wish I had agreed too. One's regret now!!

I so admire you and your family
on such an amazing move to Alaska.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
