What a difference a week makes... or two

Ben stuff- Plastic surgeon says no helmet. There is a scale from 1-6 of plagiocephaly. Ben is a 1. We just need to do everything we can to get him to sit up and strengthen his neck muscles. He thought that this happened because Ben was so low for so long before he was born. Drew and I can already tell a BIG difference. He is going back at the end of August to make sure it still looks good before his skull completely fuses, which he thinks will happen early because Ben has a small soft spot. Physical therapy has been scaled back to once a month with us continuing to do stretches, tummy time, and other excercises at home.
Job- I had seen 2, but neither of them panned out. Next week I'm going to apply for unemployment. I have heard that I can get 80% of what I was making or work part time and get benefits longer. Either way, I think it will be a good thing. After some prayer, I really feel that God is leading me away from the classroom for a while and towards something more Christian ministry based. I don't know what to expect, but I'm excited about whatever he has in store for me. I know it will be great.
