Well Jason finally made it home a week ago Saturday. We didn't tell the boys he was coming home, only that they had a surprise that night. A BIG ONE. The boys were beyond excited when daddy walked in. Brazos and Beckett both yelled "Daddyyyyy!!" And ran up and jumped into his arms. It was too precious. I videod the whole thing. I've watched it a dozen times at least.
Jason had the first week home off so he relaxed and we had a coffee date and lunch date during that week. It was so nice to have him home. Despite already having a little family drama...living with your parents just isn't easy! Especially Jason and his Dad's dynamic. He officially started his preceptorship today although he went in and covered for the front desk yesterday. He did his first adjustment yesterday on a patient and the dr he was with said he nailed it! Dr Marcy wants him to build up his patient base during this time so he can be up and running by the time he starts working in January. They discussed his contract last week and Jason feels much better about it now that he understands the pay and she worked with him on the non-compete. It's a great deal and will be really nice for him to have a steady base salary!
Things at work are going well. Still with my same company although I have been looking at jobs at the university. I applied for a couple really good positions that would be a step up for me but have not heard anything yet. Pam assured me that things move really slowly and that no news wasn't necessarily bad news. Praying that everything works as it should.
We are beginning the process of thinking about buying a house. Trying to decide whether to buy or have Tom build us something. Tom building would really be the best value but finding a lot so far has been hard. We haven't talked with a realtor or anything yet but I'm not finding anything for sale in the area that we want. I'm determined to get in the school district that I want/a great school district for the boys so I'm not settling on any old place for our house. Unfortunately that means more expensive homes. It will be at the very earliest next spring before we could do anything so we still have lots of time but trying to get a game plan in place.
So far life has been pretty great down here and we all seem happier. I miss my family a lot and am ready to see them already. Hoping to make a trip to KC for work soon and gonna squeeze in visits to everyone.
