Scaling Back....

There are a few things I need to update on here, but I'll start with something that I'm/we're working through right now. If you know us well, you know that Dan and I don't function well being super busy and not having margin in our life. Well, for the past 6 months or so it has felt that way.

Dan has been more busy in his role as part-time principal and part-time teacher...surprisingly enough over the last 8 months or so my business has grown that I am working more and more all the time. What's my primary job? Graphic designer? Nope...wife...mom. To be honest, I feel like I have been spending more time working and less time being a mom. We are blessed that we now have the opportunity to make some changes. Why and how you might ask?

Last week Dan was offered an assistant principal position at West Fargo HS and he accepted. (HOORAY, this was a LONG TIME prayer request!!!) Initially we planned on having me continue working...after a weekend of craziness and God working on both our hearts, we sat down Sunday night to reconnect and talk and we came to the conclusion that something needs to change. God opened the door for Dan's job and we're so thankful for that and for this season while we have young kids I want to go back to having more focused time with them. It will be an adjustment again, but it's kind of a breath of fresh air!!

Congrats on Dan's job!! Yay! And really - I know all-too-well what you have been going through the past 6 months. It's SO hard to balance it all and frankly, I STINK at it. Right now, we've got to make it work though, so something have to go to the wayside. Glad you guys came to the same conclusion - that ALWAYS helps when you're on the same side of the fence :-)
