I haven't posted in a while...because we moved...again. We were not able to sell our home and Kris and I have been having the feeling for quite a while that the Lord wanted us to move back. Our house had been on the market since November 2012, and we had many people look, lowered the price $10,000, but zero offers. We had just put in new flooring throughout most of the house, and had updated so many things...but no offers. We feel like there must be a reason for us to come home...now we are anxiously waiting to know what God has planned for us here. Kris is commuting for a while, but had an interview in the local store just last week. I know there is a plan for his work too. Our move was so amazing...our Impact church family helped pack us up the giant U-Haul, and in the same afternoon, our church family here helped us unload it...I tell you...God was in the details...we are so blessed.
The kids have adjusted beautifully to the move. They are just content to be home. In fact, we drove in the driveway after following the above mentioned giant U-Haul for 2 hours, and Claire shouted from the back seat, "Home! Home!" We have been working on getting the kids enrolled, school physicals done, and unpacking boxes one by one. There are so many things about this home that we forgot that we loved so much. I love being able to hear the kid's conversations because they aren't 2000 square feet away...and being able to do laundry and fold it and put it away all on one floor...and not rationing the amount of times I can adjust the décor on our walls because of too many nail holes (ha, ha!). It's simple things...like the way you can hear the peacocks from the park from our backyard, and the way all of the trees in our yard shield and shade us...so thankful for those things. We love this home, and if houses could talk, I think ours would say that it loves us too. We are so happy to be home again!
