Whee! What a week! I've had a bit of writers cramp, but no more. There is so much going on around here, its a bit insane, but highly enjoyable. Loads of cleaning, scrubbing and reorganizing. Getting the unneeded items out and into a garage sale, and then getting ready for school to start soon. Its been a fun, busy, and productive summer. Still hoping to get some sewing projects done before school as well. We'll see...
We are THOROUGHLY enjoying the record low temps that are hitting Nashvegas. Walks with the kids after dinner, gardening, cleaning up the backyard. Usually can't even stand to be outside this time of year, but we have had the windows WIDE open enjoying the breezes. Papa's been taking the boys on daily bike rides too. Hoping they will keep this up when the temps rise again - its good for all those boys!
Papa's been busy: joined a business networking group. He had been a member of the same group with our previous business, and had really done well with it. He was so excited to bring West Pole to them. Something new and totally different from where we were. Reception was very warm, and encouraging. Its finally something we feel like we can seriously pursue.
Why? We really have a passion for our family, and as entrepreneurs we can truly have the best situation to raise our children the way that we believe we should. It gives us the flexibility both with our schedules and our geography. Income possibilities are generally not limited but by your own efforts. It allows us to educate our children in the best way we can with lots of field trips and hands on experiences.
West Pole also allows us to get the creative input from others we love to encourage. We are looking for back-to-school, homeschool, and creation oriented artwork and slogans right now, so get your thinking caps on. Kick around your ideas to some other folks, and then send them on to us. Then get everyone you know to get on there and vote for you!
And speaking of creation-oriented, some of you may know that we are highly interested in creation science. We follow the websites, blogs, magazines, and the museum news actively. We look forward to one day supporting this creation message in a really big way.
I mentioned above a previous business we owned. We had intended to use that business to fund this new one. Arrangements were made, but God saw fit that they were not fulfilled. We are hoping West Pole may be the starting point to head into the future of being a beacon to those who are dealing with the stormy winds of an uncertain life. Here's to hoping that these hopes will flow out into funding for that message of intelligent design.
Okay, so we are fulfilling some of our first orders, and customizing them too. We got some really great new designs on the site, so check them out and vote. Get your friends and fam to get on and vote too. And order one of your favorites!
More jeans coming soon...
