We have been very, very busy in the Richards' household. Mitch has finally finished all his credentials to become a school administrator, which was completed in June. He has also accepted a new position teaching 6th grade next year still with the Selah School District. I have also changed my career. After spending almost 6 years in public accounting, I received a job offer working in the private sector which I just couldn't resist. In June, I started working for Tree Top in the finance department which has been such a blessing to our family. The girls are really enjoying all the apple juice. We are finally started to adjust to our new careers but if things weren't crazy enough we decided to put our house on the market. Let's just say it isn't easy keeping a house clean with two kids playing in it all day.
Clare is getting very big and is no longer our "Little Girl" which makes her Daddy very sad. She is very independent and definitely has a mind of her own. Leah continues to be a very sweet natured little one. She is learning new things daily from her sister and is starting to hold her own with Clare. We love watching the two of them interacting with each other.
It is hard to believe summer is almost over and Mitch has to go back to work. He is very sad about this. He loves spending the days with the girls taking them to the library, on walks, to the duck park, and the many other adventures. Even though I'm jealous of all the fun things Mitch does with the girls I feel so blessed that they have the opportunity to spend time with their Dad. In between all this we have still managed to fit in various adventures that I plan on posting more about in the upcoming weeks.
