And it’s hurricane winds.
But hoping it will all end up good. Some of the prayer requests lately were about this as we didn’t know where it was all going! Being in the dark, or going around a curve not knowing where you are going, is so scary. But it seems God is working things out!
After 6 years at his waiver house Chris is moving to a new house! This was years in the making and finally happened suddenly when we heard of an availability too good to pass up. (Everything had been too expensive!!) We needed to cut his rent in half and have just about done so. It is a cute place and I hope he adjusts well. Prayers appreciated! He also should be able to eventually have a roommate. We never successfully were able to get one where he was because the rent was just too high. “But the legend of the rent, was way past due.” Or about to be. (School of rock reference, haha)
Chris is doing very well right now, as he was when he moved 6 years ago, so hopefully with all our support and love and good staff he will do very well. He is still thriving at the workshop he started in September of 17.
On top of this change (4 days earlier!!) Ryan is moving to a new school. This came as a shock but is all part of planning for his transition years to vocational. This will have more music and art opportunities for Ryan as well. They even brought a guitar to class for him to play. They had an opening and thought it was a good time to transition since Ryan will be 17 soon. They have opportunities to work on job skills even making some money ahead of his post-high school years. We weren’t expecting to do this so soon but felt the opportunity was great for him. So he had orientation today and will be starting Thursday.
Please pray for him in this transition as well, and that our move for Chris is smooth as there is SO much to do and so much furniture and items to juggle! May our boys be blessed in this new season….
And in the middle of that our daughter’s store closed and she got transferred to a new one. THIS just happened a week ago. We are praying for her as well, so far it is going fine.
After working with Chris every weekend for SIX YEARS I did not proceed to get a position with his new provider in this house. it will be very strange but Roger and I are missing each other over the weekend, and this way we can all visit Chris together without me being gone 48 hours a weekend. As soon as we adjust to Chris’s move and Ryan’s new school I’m going to be on the hunt for a new job in my educational bachelor’s degree field. Not a regular teacher, as I don’t yet have license, but I have seen a lot of cool opportunities on the job boards!! I also signed up for a few freelance jobs that look good that also use the bachelor’s degree — one for tutoring and one as a web reviewer of some sort. I haven’t started either one, plan to look at that in November as well as start doing more data entry with roger.
As always, busy busy! God’s blessings and happy autumn!
