Whirlwind

I must apologize for the lack of posts lately, but there's a really good reason....we are without Internet right now because we've.....
MOVED!!!!!
3 short weeks ago, we decided on a whim to list our house on a Tuesday night, we had a house in mind that we might want to move to. On Friday our house was officially on the market and a family from out of town was coming to look! On Saturday this same family came to look again and made an offer. On the same day they made their offer, we found out that the house we wanted was not going to be for sale. Where were we going to go? Sunday evening, after a day at the lake we looked at a house nearby and fell in love!!!!! We accepted an offer on our house and made an offer on this house. By Monday all offers were good and closing was set in 2 and a half weeks!!!! We had a lot to do!!!! Last Saturday, with the help of lots of family and friends, we moved into our new house and we are so happy!!! I'll post before and after pictures soon, but there's some painting and knocking down walls and exterior work that needs to be done first!!!! It's been really neat to see God work in all the details!!!!
School also started today. I got some pictures of Emma Claire, but the boys were out the door before I could even grab my camera. I'll have to get pictures of them AFTER school!!!!

Here is our new 1st grader!!!!
With her teacher Mrs. Thompson!!!

How wonderful that your house sold so quickly! Blessings on your move! Emma Claire looks darling on her first day of school and like such a big girl! Hope she has a wonderful year. Our oldest starts K on friday and I just can't believe it!
