It really is not a habit that I want to get into….only posting once a month. What’s up with that? Will, the girls and I have been on a crazy adventure these past 2 months. We closed on our house, obviously by the last post. We have moved into our church’s mission house. Nice and furnished. We’ve been packing and visiting w/ friends and family. Trying to tie up loose ends w/ bills, changing our address, bank accounts and adjusting to being broke and homeless. ha!
It’s been a sweet adventure though…we’ve told some friends goodbye already and we have truly been encouraged beyond description by these sweet people. The Lord crossed our paths for a reason and I hope that we have given Him glory through it all. Anyways, before I start crying…..ha! Ok, so the last I updated was July 5th…Here is a quick rundown on what we’ve been doing and what’s going on w/ the girls as we go through this transition….
VBS @ CCBC! Maddie’s 2nd VBS and Bug’s 1st!
We went to visit one of my dearest friends, Kim, and her sweet family in Knoxville. We got to meet their fun little boy, Rev and we had a blast!
After the Knoxvegas trip, we moved into the Mission house and moved the girls into the same bedroom. Kinda shaky at the beginning, but they love it now! Then, my awesome South Carolina friends came for a visit in the Ville while William was playing his last Summit Cup golf tournament. It was a sweet treat to get to hang w/ them and laugh hysterically together (and not scaring Maddie w/ my laugh). HA!
Will’s 32nd birthday! Yes I did just post your age on our blog! It was fun celebrating w/ our dear friends, the Chung family. We also visited Big Willy at work for our annual birthday lunch with Daddy on the day. Despite the face in the picture, Maddie LOVES going to see Daddy at work. 🙂
Our last day in our first home….kinda sad, but we went out with some Krispy Kremes! haha…
We’ve had friends come over, gone to the zoo w/ Daddy, Catan night w/ some friends, a smashing going away party w/ our peeps at church, Bug got her big girl carseat (sigh!) and lunch w/ Grandaddy, Granmommy, Aunt Abbey and Pop halfway!
We’ve gone over to some friends’ house for dinner and we even went to the KY state fair for the first time! Whew! Will even ate that nasty Krispy Kreme hamburger….he claimed it was delicious, but about 20 minutes after he ate it, he had to sit down…ha!
I had a wonderful dinner w/ my Art chix (the art teachers I used to teach with) and they TOTALLY surprised me with a Canon Rebel T3 (whoa, I know!) So, we will be taking more pictures and updating more frequently, or off with my head!
We went swimming at Auntie Laura’s pool too! And Maddie had her first big dentist appointment to get her teeth cleaned – she did great! We were really apprehensive about it, but she did great until the actual dentist came in. HA.
Needless to say, we’ve been busy, but we wouldn’t have it any different in this chapter of our life…
