This post is just an update on what has been happening in our family.
Bill continues to work loooong hours at The Original Mattress Factory. He recieved a promation in April and is now a production supervisor. He is enjoying "being in charge" of the day to day operations in the factory. He continues to enjoy landscaping, but has been too tired to do anything-those 50-60 hour work weeks will get you everytime.
Shelly is enjoying having a little bit of free time now that Jared and Allison are in school. She is trying to get Jordan on a napping schedule, so she can get things done around the house.
Jared is starting to adjust to 1st grade and riding the bus to school. There have been several mornings that he has told us through the tears"I don't want to go to school", but we remind him that this is his job and he needs to do it with a happy heart. Please pray for him, getting up at 6:15 to get on the bus at 7:00 has not been easy for him. He is very much like his mother-not a morning person.
Allison looooooves Kindergarten. Everyday she runs to the bus and can't wait to get to school. We are thankful that she is adjusting so well.
Jordan is enjoying the personal attention from Mommy in the afternoon while Jared and Allison are at school. He is so close to walking, but is under strict instructions from Grandma Lemponen not to do it until they come down in 2 weeks for his birthday. Sorry, Grandma but I don't think we will be able to hold him back. He has taken a few unaided steps to Bill, but nothing major yet.
