We Are Here

Hello everyone! We have arrived safely in Mobile. It was quite the trip down here!! We traveled through the terrible ice storm in Kentucky. We tried to stop three different times in order to not travel in it. All three times the town was without power. We continued travelling down I-65. Trees were down all over the interstate due to the heavy ice. It was a scary mess. We made it to Bowling Green. It was the first town with power. It took us over 9 hours to travel a little over 200 miles that day. The next morning we were up EARLY in order to make it in time to sign the lease on our house. We made it just in time!

I do have lots of pictures to post and things to talk about, but ..... not yet! We arrived here last Wednesday, but just got our stuff late this Wed. afternoon. It was a long wait in an empty house! So.... I have lots of unpacking to do. We also do not have internet at our home yet. It is taking a while to find the right company down here-- another long story I will not tell you. I have to use the church's computers right now. I don't want to load them down with our pictures, and I don't have the time to spend on doing much with the blog yet.

We do love it here and the church people have been EXTREMELY helpful and generous to us. They have been doing there best to make our time without any of our things as easy as possible. Lots of yummy homecooked meals and many, many other little extra things! I will tell you all about it as soon as I have the time.

Oh yeah, I had not seen my house before we moved down here. I was really nervous about that. We found it through a real estate agent and the internet. I LOVE it!!! It is wonderful and is located in a great quiet neighborhood with lots of kids our kids' ages!! Also it is a dead end street, so very little traffic---great for the kids to play! God led us to the perfect one. He is so good!
