The Tides are Finally Turning and Life Decisions

I'm very optimistic that the ukus are now under control. I know it hasn't been 2 weeks, but it has been over one and I haven't seen a live one in a few days now. I'm not ready to declare victory yet, but I'm close!

Other than that, there's not really a whole lot going on here - physically anyway. Mentally and emotionally our panties seem to be all in a knot as we're trying to decide what the future holds for our family. Now that I'm done with school we don't really have a hold on our life here in Hawaii, rent off-campus is way too expensive to just be "hangin' out" until we figure things out. Seriously, every time we make a decision, something happens that makes us rethink the choice we made. The mental seesaw of chaos is getting heavier and heavier by the day. But we have faith that the Lord has a plan for us, we just need to be patient in our waiting to find out what it is. In the meantime, I'm applying for teaching positions - mostly in Utah, but I have applied here in Hawaii as well. There look to be a few jobs available on the east coast, but as that's unfamiliar territory (well, at least in our married/kids lifetime) I haven't actually put in an application anywhere out there yet. I'm also waiting for my actual teaching license to be issued, that will be immensely helpful in the application process:)

So, nothing too exciting, just wanted to update you all on the buggy battle, as I know you're all waiting breathlessly to make sure that our heads are clean before we all may or may not visit you over the summer - I would be too:) I did take the perfect summer nap picture of Juliana the other day, but its still on the camera and I'm too lazy to go find the camera and the card sorry!

It was good to talk-I agree maybe not an emergency to make us again!

When we got your package-Mom and I decided-just to be sure --open it outside--I told her you said 24 hours not on a human head and they're dead, so we knew we were okay--but I was happy safe than sorry!! Mom was really impressed the amount of stuff you got in the TINY box! Tyler is obsessed with the Superman -well pjs but he thinks it's a shirt!

Okay I think I"m normal but typing for my blog and typing just now-it's just slower than normal with a TON of mistakes and it's just annoying!

Hope to see you guys the weekend before Mom and Dad go to the MTC??? I'll be in Utah...

Hoping that you get an answer one or the other as to what your family needs to do. If is awful when you are on that sea-saw and just want to know what needs to happen!

I'm on the phone with Julie at this moment. Update please! I hear you have a job! Hooray! I owe Cameron a letter, which I should get right on but know I won't. Life is busy and sometimes frustrating, isn't it?
