I’m still here! But in a different place! We’ve finally moved, and that’s one of the main reasons I haven’t been around here for a while. We didn’t even have phone or internet for nearly a month!
So we’ve officially moved into a wonderful new home, to which my husband lovingly refers as a mansion. It’s not that large, but we have nearly 3000 sq. feet of space to grow into! We still can hardly believe we’re living here and are in awe that the Lord would provide such a home for our family. Since the actual moving took place much later than we’d expected, we had only a few days before we had guests arrive!
My mother-in-law and niece came for a two week visit! It’s been 4 years since we’ve seen them, so needless to say we were so happy to have them come, and we had a great time. We didn’t really do anything too special, but even just being at the house was enjoyable. All the kids got along well, and that always makes for a nice visit!
They left last Wednesday morning, and Thursday night my sister and her family flew in to town! We had them with us through the weekend. Their daughter is about the same age as my older kids so they loved having another playmate around!
So this week I’m finally trying to get settled into the house! We had all the important stuff in, but our garage is still full of boxes to be sorted through. Little by little we’ll get it all done!
We have a busy summer ahead of us. This week our church is having Vacation Bible School in the evenings, next week my husband will be away at Teen Camp, and then we’ll have two weeks of ‘normal’ at home. I say ‘normal’ because those two weeks will be largely spent preparing to leave for the Spiritual Leadership Conference hosted by Lancaster Baptist Church in California, and from there we will be driving to Oregon for a vacation/family reunion. All in all we will be gone for roughly 3 weeks! By the time we get home, it will be time to prepare for our next school year and I’ll be in the final couple of months of this pregnancy! I figure we should be all settled in just in time for this baby to make his arrival and throw us into another couple months of chaos! I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Yes, I typed his on purpose! We are expecting a little boy! All of the kids wanted a boy, so I’m happy we could accommodate their wishes :)
Many of my friends and family reading this already know the name we’ve chosen, but I think I’ll keep at least that much secret from the internet world until the big day!
Okay, I think we’re all caught up!
