Great news!!!

Chris was accepted into the train dispatch program!!!  Praise God!  He will be headed to Ft. Worth, TX for a 4 month program in 2 weeks.  (Not really looking forward to that part, but I'll get over it. :-)  Once he is done with the program, he will have a job in TX...the exact location will be known about 2 months into the program.  WHEW.

So...Chris is going to rent a place in TX and we will stay here in MS.  Hopefully, we will join him around January, once he has a job and can get us settled in somewhere.

More news...

Griffin was diagnosed with severe autism.

I'm not really sure how I feel about this diagnosis yet...

All I know is that I love him more than ever...

I'll blog about this once I can figure out how to express my feelings in words.

Lots of ups and downs this month... Lots more ups than downs, that's for sure.  Most of the downs have just been colds, migraines, a little fender-bender, etc. but we have our family, we are still chugging along... we are still stronger than ever!

Here are a few pictures for you!

Great job, Big G!

Trying to love on Little G.  LOL

Love and Hugs!!


  1. Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! A job is a wonderful thing! I'm so happy for all of you. Have you ever lived in Texas? I lived there many years ago and it was a great experience.
    On the other news - I am very surprised that Griffin has that diagnosis now.
    Really, though, it doesn't matter except for school. It may help you get services at different times in his future. But, we know he is loving and happy and a joy to be with. Right? Don't let "experts" shake you up.
    I'm keeping you all in my prayers and saying some thank you prayers for a job! :)

    1. Thank you! We are very relieved! We haven't lived in TX, so this will be a new experience for us.

  2. How are things going? I miss you! How is Big G doing at school? How are the littles doing? How are YOU doing?

  3. Hey, we miss you! Hope everything is OK. Autism can be tough, but I hope you have resources available to help you cope.


Tell us what'cha think!
