Family together once again!

Kevin's home! He pulled in around 8:30 last night (Jeep still in one piece and an uneventful drive, praise the Lord!), and the kids were both still up. Hannah was fed, asleep, and just about to be put down, and Eli was still up and about. Eli's reaction to Kevin being home was AMAZING! No words can describe it. He was just SO HAPPY. Gave Kevin BIG HUGS every couple minutes, and kept saying "Daddy home!" He'd look at him and just smile as if thinking "he's really here!" So great for all of us! It's sooo good to have the family together again! We've spent the whole day in jammies, just bumming around the house on this cold and gloomy weather day. So good to see my hubby again! =)

a pic from today that shows just how happy these boys areAnd good news on the job front... Kevin heard from his friend Craig in Nebraska that if Kevin passes the test, he'll for sure be getting a job offer. And they're planning on doing the test the end of next week or 1st of November. So FINALLY things are progressing, and hopefully we'll be hearing something SOON! Kevin also got a call from eastern Iowa telling him to send in his resume again and he could probably do an interview AND test in the same day next week. Turns out they're hiring about the same time as Nebraska when we thought they wouldn't be hiring until April, so it looks like we might have a couple options out there for us! Very exciting!

Such a wonderful update to read! I'm glad you all are back together. I love Eli's response to having Daddy home.

Praise God for His timing and His care in this situation! The waiting is so hard when we want to know right now but it is comforting to look back and see how He had it all planned out.
