Well the bags are packed, the house is tidy, now just a few moments of calm before we wake the kiddos to head out on the next part of our moving adventure. Our time here has been so good. It was nice for the rest of my family to see the house we are going to live in, as well as the neighborhood we will call home. It may be the carrot we all need when things get a bit too cozy in our little TLF (temporary living facility) in OK.
We stopped yesterday and picked up a few gifts for our friends, yet they seem so inadequate. How do you find a "thing" that expresses how grateful you are? Seriously, what friend opens their home to a crazy, homeschooling family of five? Not just as guests, but cleared out portions of the house so we would have "our" space. This is the second time we have invaded these friends, they have been so good to us over the years.
It is really going to stink when they are gone when we get back. Although we have always followed a year behind them in all of our Air Force assignments, our luck ran out after Alabama. Now we are trading places. While we are in OK for the summer, they are moving to DC. (I think we are getting the better end of the deal this time ;).
Oh the shower just turned off. Now it is my turn. . . and we're off for the next phase of the adventure! Thank you for showering us with your love and prayers. We have felt them every step of the way. Keep them coming, and stay tuned. We are going to be seeing some really cool stuff this next week. I can't wait to share it with you.
