It's been a LONG time...

I know it has been a really long time since I last posted anything so most people probably think I've given up. I haven't. There's just been A LOT going on! We're now at a new Post and still settling into our new home. We traveled over 4,400 miles in the month of December, from moving and then going home to see all our family for Christmas, and then back to our new home again. It was wild! I was about ready to throw a tantrum every time we got back in the truck. My body seriously ached.

We also moved ourselves...and had only one full day to unload all our household goods, by the time we found a house (also helped pack and load all the owner's household goods), before going to visit family 10 hours away. We literally unloaded everything, and headed out the next day. It was wild, but thankfully our daughter and her husband drove the 10 hours to come help us! I don't think we could have headed out when we did without their help.

Now we're starting over and trying to settle/adjust to a new area. The sunshine is awesome...coming from a very rainy, gray area! The most difficult part has been moving our twins, now freshmen, to a new school in the middle of the year, and in a totally different area of the US. Today begins week two and I spend a lot of time praying they will adjust well, and make new friends quickly. I also thank the Lord they have each other!!! What a HUGE blessing!

To those who still check in on me, thanks! I hope to get back to writing soon. I miss it! Your prayers for our twins would be wonderful. Thank you, and Happy New Year!!! (I still can't believe we're in a new year.)
