Nothin's in Cement ... yet

I don't know why I can't blog regularly right now. I just feel so disoriented, I guess. But I thought you might be interested to see where we are right now in our lives.
We sold our house in June and have been living with my parents while we await a job option in northern Idaho. However, a couple weeks ago, we decided we really need to go to Provo so Shane can pursue a doctorate degree in marriage and family counseling down at BYU. So, we will probably be moving there. We are currently waiting to see if he can get a job as a counselor down there, but he may have to get licensed before many of them will look at him. If that's the case, we may move down there and put his mechanic skills to work. He can't apply for the program until December and it will start next fall. So, we have a lot of waiting to do. But we are eager to follow a new path and see what the Lord has in store for us.
In the meantime, I have been frantically looking for replacements for my positions at the preschool and also for my father-in-law. We have been keeping plenty busy, helping my parents put in a back porch and I have been involved with a couple blog tours for a few of my author friends and am putting together my own blog tour for the end of September. It's a lot of work, but I hope it will pay off in the end. (A blog tour is where I send my book to people and they read and review it - and sometimes add an interview of me - and then on their assigned day, they post their review of my book on their blog.) I've also been busy working on getting another book polished up to send off! So pray for that to go well!
All in all, we've had a busy but enjoyable summer but we are eager for school to start up again! Here are some pictures of the cement project.

Long time no talk (I'm Ruth's husband). If you have any questions about the MFT program at BYU, feel free to ask!
