Thankfully, our family is fine, we have our health, and everything is about the same.
The first item is, Musical Daddy did not get the high school band job for which he interviewed a few days ago. He didn't even make the second round. I'm glad that he was able to get in the door, because it means that there's something appealing about him on "paper" that caused them to invite him in. Even so, for him to have gotten this job would have meant an end to our immediate lifestyle worries. And would have also made both of us feel like there is hope for one or both of us in the teaching profession. With it only being the end of July, we have a few more weeks before we panic.
For the second item, we need prayers upon prayers, and if ever there were a time for a miracle, now would be a great one. There is a little girl, 10 years old, who has been fighting Wilms Tumor for about 4 years. She has received three different courses of treatment, and they have just learned that the cancer is back. They are a family who has great faith which is being tested over and over...please pray for Riley.
And hug your children.
