Some days I just need to be raw here, and today I guess is one of those days.

Things with the new house are moving along, but not nearly fast enough for my liking.

I'm tired of not having my own space. I'm tired of living out of boxes and in someone else's home.

I'm doing the best I can to enjoy this time and to make it memorable for my kids, but it's hard some days.  

Some days are amazing, and we have a great day and all seems right in the world. And others, I just want to crawl in a hole and cry for a good while.

 I know that all of this is nessecary, yet some days I wonder why.

I trust God, and yet I often question where this is all leading.   What he is teaching me.

 I find that I often don't wonder WHY it is happening, just what it is he wants me to learn, and then when I don't get answers to that, I get frustrated.

Anyhow, friends, if you could just lift our family up over the next few weeks as this finishes up.  Pray for good attitudes, for more great days than frustrating days, for peace for our kids hearts.

Wow, the last month has been a whirlwind. I'm exhausted just thinking back on everything we've done.  

So, for a short recap... we packed up our house and put it in storage, and are staying with family for the time being.  

The kids aren't doing too badly with the change, and closing on the new house is set for 2 weeks from now. Pray with us that things work out smoothly!!!

We've been super busy with ball, the kids are loving it and we're loving watching them have fun!

The kids are doing great, and growing so fast! Hopefully we can update soon with pictures of the new house!!!
