Welcome 2009

Happy New Year to all who read here. Wednesday night after church we had some folks over from church for a little New Year's Eve party. We ate party food and played games to bring in the New Year.

New Year's Day we went to Aaron's aunt's and uncle's for our last big family gathering with everyone before our move. We had a good long day enjoying just being with family. We came for lunch and didn't leave until after 9:00. We had lots to talk about. The kids played and played. They played so hard, and we got home so late. Asher got up at 9:30. Chloe got up at about 10:30. Justus woke up long enough to get some more milk and go back to sleep. Abbie still hasn't stirred at all. She is okay; I have checked on her.

Today, I have been painting the bathroom, and now I am about to begin some touch up painting in the foyer. I am taking advantage of the stillness around here with the kids barely moving around. We have had a few inquiries from people interested in renting the house. Pray that we will find and recognize the right renters to rent the house to. We really want a good family in here that will take care of our home.

I love this house. I am really going to miss it! I have always wanted a big old house like this one. I was so excited when we found it. It has such beautiful wood work and character to it. I just know that if God is moving me away from it, it is because He has something better for me. Something I will love even more.

Enjoy your day. Hi! Ho! Hi! Ho! It's off to work I go!

Hi Rachel,
Sure, I wouldn't mind taking one Monday a month. Write me and tell me how to join the group, and all that stuff.
Praying for you as you move.

we do have a couple of homeschooling families in our church - our church does not umbrella them, but i think they each use a different church/organization for that
i'll e-mail you with their names - and, if you want me to, i can ask them for their e-mail addresses and if they would mind your writing to them...
are you going to be homeschooling after you move? I am assuming -yes- because of your question :D
