Scott has not had a traditional work schedule for the past 8 months. He is at home with us Monday - Thursday and works 12 hours days Friday - Sunday. This is a schedule we actually campaigned to implement into our lives. Since we home school Grace gets to see dad all day long four days in a row. A couple of months ago some issues were happening at work and we were worried that Scott would have to go back to a 5 day a week work - week/10 hours a day plus 2 hours drive time. Today we found out that he gets to keep his position supervising the weekend shift. This means we can still heavily garden this Fall and start putting more of our homesteading ideas in action. If the position continued to stay on the weekends through next Spring and Summer it will be even better for more gardening. We are all so relieved. Life can go on as we know it.
