We had not been back to Jack's since we moved out, mostly because we've been getting settled where we are at, partly to give Jack a break from us in his space! Jack's yacht club puts on the sailing program every summer for the kids, and he helps run it. Gabe did his first two-week session last year while we were still living at Jack's, which is right around the corner from the club. This year we are about a half an hour away, so Jack said we could stay, cut the commute, and have a mini-vacation. Totally great! The only drag is that the kids had just started house-sitting for neighbors, so we still had to come home every day to feed our animals and theirs! So we would basically trade off sleeping here and there so that we were only driving once a day instead of back and forth. Confusing? Sometimes! Where are my pj's? Augh, at the other house! Where are we sleeping tonight? I don't know! Next year we definitely will get someone to stay here!
I haven't really written a lot about this side of it since we moved, mostly because it's still a work in progress. It is coming up on a year since we moved to Santa Paula. I know we needed time to be settled. In the last three months Rob got a really good job, and just had his first review. We LOVE this county, our city, our neighborhood, and the friends and neighbors we have been blessed to know. We are so thankful to look back and see all that God has done, and even though we don't see what's next, we know that He's not finished with us yet. :)
