Life Changes In Just One Month

What hasn't changed since this time last month. I started my new position at work! On June 28, 2006 I started as the investigator for the County Veterans Service Commission. On July 1, 2012 I started as the director for the County Veterans Service Commission. Back in December my boss retired and they replaced him with someone who just wasn't right for the job. He resigned in April. They brought Doug back in as the temp director until they were able to figure out a direction they were going to move in. Todd and I were out on a grown up date to the Japanese steak house when the president of my board called and asked if I was interested in the directors position. um YES! Since then they brought on a new guy as the investigator. I really like him! He has more potential than anyone I've seen in a long time! He's motivated, nice, funny and he WANTS to do well! That's HUGE! Our family size has...well you know, jumped from 5 to 7! Nothing is like it was! Not one thing in our life wasn't turned upside down by this! These little people are amamzing! Ryan is taking it all in stride and loves having the girls around. Although he does struggle with the idea of them going home. Lane and Ethan are being such good boys and are SO mature all of a sudden! It seems having the girls around has really helped them to mature. We also started football this week! The boys are so excited and are playing hard! The coach has already commented on their passion and drive and said he's excited to see what they can do this year. I'm so excited for them! Life is good. We're in a great place right now but we also know that at any moment everything could change.
