Our first veggie garden disappointment (and some cute pics)

We're been working outside...Cadie's work basically consists of keeping her hat on and carrying her Elmo ball around. Matt's working on redoing the beds at the front of our house.

I've been working on my veggies. My tomato and pepper sprouts are doing great; the zucchini looks good. I'm not really sure how everything else is - we've got sprouts but they don't seem to be growing as quickly as they should.

It was time to harvest the radishes this week. I dug them up to find...nothing. All scraggly roots, no radishes. Seriously disappointing. See? We had a couple of weirdly hot days that I think must have messed them up. Boo.

Cadence discovers PlayDoh

We needed something new and different to do after breakfast on Wednesday. Cadence had gotten some PlayDoh eggs during the egg hunt at our friends' house. I was hesitant to get them out because I made some play dough a couple months ago and she did not get it. But she was very interested to see what was in the eggs and once I showed her how it worked, she had a great time.

Her future's so bright, she's gotta wear shades

She's a cutie, our girl. And we certainly believe her future will be bright. We just have no idea where that future is going to play out. It's looking unlikely that Matt will find a full-time job in the area we live now. At least not anything anytime soon. Understandably, he's hesitant to take a church position that doesn't feel totally right, so he's already turned down one full-time position that we really felt he was not the guy for.

Maybe he can string together enough part-time stuff for us to get by and not have to move - that would be fine. He's got a job parking cars at the Furniture Market next week. And Matt's really enjoying helping out with the music ministry at the church we've been attending. The pastor would love to have him on staff, but they have very little money to pay.

Matt does however, have some prospects outside the area. He's interviewing this week in Chapel Hill and a church in Washington state would like to fly him out for in-person interviews. (I am not in favor of that. It's very far away.)

I know people are faithfully praying for us. Please continue. We want to make the right decisions.
