ups and downs

The last week and a half has been pretty busy, so I will try and play catch up. It's felt like a very long week and a half for us overall. The biggest reason, Drake found out that he has until the end of the month with his current job. Always so stressful to go through this as a couple, but this is the first time we have dealt with a lost job with Easton around, and it definitely makes it sting a little more. I feel confident with Drake's resume that God closed that door to send him another direction and just like every other big heartache in our lives, we will look back one day and see the blessing in disguise. 

Besides that big blow, we have had a handful of boring adult errands this past week-getting car stuff fixed, grocery shopping, Easton had a neurology appointment and I had workshops and things to stay late at work for. But between all of the hard, tough or boring things we have to do...all of the fun stuff in between makes up for it and helps you push through the not so fun days. So now... on to the awesome stuff that has been going on :)

We hung out with the Bennett family last weekend. Easton and Millie are on the same page with their priorities during a play date which include: running circles, hide and go seek, running circles, swinging and more running circles. 

Sweetest baby boy ♥ 
We also stopped by my grandma's house this week and her sister was in town visiting. Easton LOVED being there. 
and drum roll please...pre t-ball started this week! :) 
 Easton had his first practice Tuesday and has been asking to go back all week. I'm so excited he is enjoying it. We had practice again this morning and he was rocking it! 
After practice, we came back and grabbed some lunch and got cleaned up before heading to the zoo. We went ahead and got annual passes. :) Easton is so into it, I figured with spring and summer break ahead we will get a lot of use out of them. 


Looking forward to enjoying the rest of our weekend before re-focusing and taking on another week.

  1. sorry to hear about Drake's job that must be pretty scary. Though it sounds like he has a great background and probably will find something quickly. We also have zoo passes and love them!

  2. I'm sure Drake will find an amazing new company to work for. Still job hunting is stressful. Easton is so cute playing tball! Prayers for you all!

  3. The not-so-good trend of losing jobs seems to be everywhere. My dad's girlfriend got her notice last week, JJ got bumped off of his job a couple weeks ago (thankfully he is still with the company, he just had to find a different job) and then now hearing about Drake. It is so stressful so I hope he finds something he loves soon. I can totally see Easton being a baseball player, I can't wait to hear how his first season of t-ball goes!
