I sit here contemplating my beautiful life as Brooks pretends to color with some new markers and Conner watches Kung Fu Panda, fully delighted that I had the ability to get either things for my children. So many times in the past we have not. We have been blessed to have friends and family who have been incredibly generous to us, gifting us in areas that we could not provide in ourselves. Having the ability to do them ourselves is absolutely wonderful. Simple joys, big blessings.

There has been a lot of change and moving forward in our home. Sometimes it goes by so quickly I forget it was ever different. Other times I feel as if the change is teasing me with the idea of it. So without further ado I share our change with you.

After much prayer we finally found a church to call home. It is so exciting to be apart of a body again and Joseph and I are looking forward to our first Community Group this coming Thursday. Also the boys and I will be joining their playgroup tomorrow. Yay!

Our cats will finally be joining us in the next month! The past eight months have been full of, "we can keep them, we have to give them up, OH we can keep them, blah, have to let them go" to finally" WE CAN KEEP THEM" There are two big things we learned about what we will differently upon our next move. One of them involves our pets. We have been so blessed through out this all to have some wonderful women who opened up their doors to our fur babies even though they had never met us before. And because of them Nihko and Amber are finally coming home!

Now for the biggest change of all! Starting mid September I will become a nanny for three brothers that live a couple house down. This will be a big adjustment, but one I am thoroughly looking forward too! It is an awesome opportunity to love on a family that is in desperate need of it and to offer a worn down mother some good childcare.

Ok, for now that will have to do!
