Well, it's official. We're moving to Kansas City, Missouri. We're scheduled to move somewhere between the 1st and 15th of July. We're all pretty excited about all the changes it will bring. The boys are looking forward to a new school and new friends. We'll be living on base and I'm looking forward to no house projects. We're also praying for great neighbors and lots of children our boys ages. That's not asking too much is it??? It would also be nice for there to be some kids Stephen's age at church. This last year he's been the only child his age. That can't be fun.
On a totally different note, we got a dog. As if five boys, a husband who travels more than I'd like, a small house, and a impending move wasn't enough. She kind of fell into our laps and we couldn't say no. A family at church was moving and couldn't take her with them and when we found out about her, she sounded perfect for our family. She is such a sweet dog. She is a border collie black lab mix. She likes to run if she gets loose, but other than that she's a great dog.
Speaking of additions to our family.......no, I'm not expecting, but hopefully by the end of the year or early next year I will be. Most of you know that Brandon got a vasectomy when I was pregnant with Seth. We regretted it the very night he got it. We've felt this whole time it was the wrong thing to do and we've finally decided to right our wrong. There are days where I feel like we're crazy for even thinking of having more children, but in our heart of hearts, we don't feel like our family is complete. We've done a ton of research and have narrowed it down to two Doctors. They are both fairly close to where we'll be living in MO. We'll spend some more time decided which one is the right one and sometime between this summer and next year, we should have corrected our wrong choice. Life, it's a funny thing sometimes. I feel like the Lord's hand has been a part of our life more this last year than any other time in my life. I'm so grateful to Him for all that he has blessed us with. I am looking forward to the future with excitement, peace and contentment. I'm sure some of you will think that we're nuts....and that's OK. Just know that you'll never have to live with us! Aren't you glad for tender mercies from the Lord??? LOL
