This has been one of those busy seasons of life for our family. I haven't really been sure exactly what I wanted to write about it, either. Delaney has been having some profound struggles and we have been working as a family to figure out solutions, being stretched all along the way. I think I am getting better at not completely shutting other people out as I hunker down through a difficult patch, which I guess is an improvement! There have been some great things happening along with the hard things, too. Ava and Sadie continually surprise me with their eagerness and capability when it comes to their schoolwork. Josh has been enjoying his start into Boy Scouts. All of the girls are thorougly enjoying their time at dance class.
Another interesting tidbit is that we are awaiting news about a home we are trying to buy as a short sale. Still in the neighborhood but already has most of the upgrades we were wanting to do to this house, so it would save us a lot of labor. It is on a much better lot, so that would be nice, too. We probably won't find out if we get it for another two months or so.
I am really looking forward to General Conference this weekend. I was reading an address from the last one that was timely for me. "We cannot and we must not lose focus on the things that matter most." I think that Heavenly Father gives me that test over and over. Maybe I'll pass it one of these days. ;-)
