Things Change

I miss my blog. I miss having down-time to just aimlessly write and document the happenings of our lives.

Things have been crazy and constantly changing. I am sure that is the biggest understatement of my life. I will spare you all the details, but I do want to share some good news. We are NOT taking the government buyout on our house and taking a major $$ loss on this house like we had been preparing/dreading to do for several months. Instead, a sweet family that we know from the community is going to be renting our home for a couple of years. It seems like a no-brianer option now, but originally we had not even considered renting.

We hired a guy from church to do some repairs and last week he asked me if we would consider renting to him. After some praying and long conversations with Chris, we saw this for what it was....the last minute miracle we had been praying for!

 Now, we don't have to come up with a large sum of money in the next 10 days. We have peace of mind because we know our renters. My Dad lives close by and can keep an eye on things. They are paying just enough to cover our mortgage. YAY!

It is funny because a week ago, we still did not know how things were going to all work out, and then things change.

A year ago, I was preparing to tell Chris bye for a little while. Tomorrow is a year from the day he started working out of state. Today he is getting the new keys for our rental home in OH, and the kids are meeting him there. HE IS SO EXCITED! He has been waiting for this day for so long. Dylan really has missed him the most I believe.

Dylan and Daddy
(I could not crop Karsen out of the picture, it cracked me up that she just had to strike a pose because the camera was pointed in her general direction! lol~)

The kids are due to arrive there in a couple of hours. Here they are yesterday before they left....

They are starting school on the 25th, so they are going to have a little while together with their Daddy, time to get settled into the new house, and get familiar with the area before the new school year. It is what we have prayed for and wanted all along... for them to be able to start the new school year there! A couple weeks ago we did not know how this would work out, but things changed! They were both excited about going to be with their Daddy. It's been a tough year for all of us, but I am so proud of Dylan and Karsen and how well they have handled all the changes along the way.

Alot of tears, alot of hardships, alot of changes have happened over the last year. I am so happy that I can truly see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've already told Chris that I don't ever want to be away from him like that ever again. We will all be back together again by Labor Day weekend!

Yay for you!! God works in mysterious ways, doesn't He? I like to think about things like, the people that are renting from you were probably praying hard for their miracle too! God was probably smiling so big when the two answers to prayer came together!! I will pray that the next couple of weeks go by fast for you. Good luck to Dylan and Karson at school!! oh, and I have missed your blogging! :)
