NASA Budget Looks Grim

Ries sent me the link to an article from the Wall Street Journal this morning. The NASA budget has been under review and we have been waiting to hear some news. We knew it would not be good, but it is worse than I thought it would be.

Ries currently works on the Orion project, one of the things rumored to be on the chopping block. Much of the local economy here is tied to NASA and I know there are a lot of families in the same situation as us. When you work for a government contractor, this situation is not unique or new, but it is worse than usual because the shuttle program ramp down means that there were already a lot of people who were going to be let go and these new cuts are on top of that.

We are both going to start brushing up our resumes, just in case. We know that God provides in all things.
Please pray for all the NASA families.

Prayer Request

Just a quick note. Gideon woke up from his nap, but I wanted to get this posted today and I may not get anymore online time.

Tomorrow, Gideon will see a specialist for positional plagiocephaly, a fancy name for “my baby has a flat head.” Though his case is very mild, I think, we are going to see a specialist that will tell us if his head will even out on its own or if he will need to wear a helmat or headband to reshape his head. It is likely insurance will pay for the helmet, if certain conditions are met.

I do not want him to have to wear a helmet for 23 hours a day for 4 months or so. I think his head will even out on its own. I think his case is due to being in the hospital and being squished in the birth canal for so long. Please pray for us, for guidance in dealing with this issue and that it can be resolved with as little intervention as possible.

I will post tomorrow and let everyone know what the doctor says.
