Catch Up

Hello all! We are continuing to have a good time in Florida with my parents. Jasen arrived today, which we are all thrilled about. Jaden, Adam & I drove up to Orlando early this morning to pick him up. The kids are very excited that Daddy is here, the hard part is going to be saying "goodbye" again :(

We have rented a 3 bedroom house in Nashville for 3 months beginning August 5th. The kids and I will take two days to make the drive. My Mom is coming along too, I guess she wanted to spend more quality time with us! 12 hours confined in a mini van with 4 small children, sound like fun to anyone??

Jasen is planning on joining around the first week of September, then the house hunt will commence. Until then we are enjoying our time here on extended vacation :) Love to everyone in Ketchikan, we miss you!

News from Florida!

I guess it has been a while since I have posted any of our activities here in sunny Florida, so here is an update for all you blog checkers out there!!

We have had a great week, with David Jenn and Abigail. It was so good to see them again after quite a long separation. Abby has changed so much, and is so much fun. It was great to see my wonderful sister-in-law and friend Jenn, and as you can see from this short clip the kids were obviously thrilled to see Uncle Dave.

Our adventures included trips to the playground, the childrens museum, fun in the pool, and an early birthday for David and the kids!

Well we can finally say, after all the prayer and encouragement...."SALE PENDING" on our house!! We are thankful to all of you who have prayed with us about the sale of our home. I know we and others have not only prayed for the actual sale, but also for the future owners, that they would be Godly people who would use the house as we have used it, for hospitality and ministry to others. Well, we are so thrilled to report that God has answered in all areas.

On Thursday of this week we received an offer from the Walker family, which we were delighted to accept. Jasen will be here through the summer doing a few extra things, but we are so excited to have an end in sight as far as our separation :)

We're Here!!

We arrived in Florida on Tuesday after a long and tiring journey. The trip went very well considering we had two connections and were flying through the night. The only thing that I could complain about is that within the first 30 minutes of the flight from Portland to Orlando Evan threw up his dinner all down the front of my shirt!! When I travel I always take a change of clothes for the kids, next time I will be packing myself one too! All in all in was a very smooth trip.

We are now getting settled for the next couple of months. The kids are adjusting well, although we have had a couple of challenging moments :) Here are some pictures of our time so far.
