A True TGIF!!!

Finally the news we have been waiting for 2 months to get. We close on our house on Monday!!! It has been a very exciting and stressful time for us. I am so glad that it is all coming to a close. Now the fun part more packing and then the moving. It is our first home and we are so excited and can't wait to get started decorating and even unpacking, I guess that will have to be in reverse order though. I have been on the phone switching over and setting things up. There is so much to get done and so little time!! Happy Friday everyone!

Here we are at the beginning of another week, a fresh start. This past week I have learned or at least been reminded of somethings. There are things we can't control no matter how much we want to or how hard we try. All we can do is our part and we have to let God have the rest. For a control freak this is very hard at times. Everyone needs strength and confidence that things will turn out the way they are supposed to. It is really easy to remember this when things are good but when things are not going so good it is harder, at least for me anyway. It makes me think of that saying be nice to everyone because everyone is going through something. That is so true your stuff might be way worse than mine but to the person going through it, it is everything to them. Your extended kindness could make a difference that you never realize. Pray for your friends and family and all those who need strength sometimes people are too afraid to ask for prayers when they need them most.

Update on Life

Well a lot has been going on around here since my last post on Colton's birthday. We have all taken turns being sick. We found out we were going to have to move and started looking for a house to buy. We have found one and after a few bumps in the road it seems as though everything is on track and we should close on the 21st. We are very excited and can't wait to get in it, except for all the packing. We have started but still have tons left to do. This is our first house to buy and boy is it fun!! The end result is fun but the whole process has been so stressful. I was making myself sick with all the worry, stress and anxiety so I am so thankful that things have turned out good and that it is settled for the most part. Colton is playing soccer and loving it. I have pictures to post but I have been so busy that I have not even put them on the computer yet. I hope everyone is doing well. I will try to post pictures later.
