The Wheelers Roll On...

We've lived in our current house for almost 5 years.  We LOVE this house and have enjoyed putting all the little touches into it that make it "home" to us.  When we bought it, it was in need of some serious TLC and we've given it that and more!  It's a totally different house now and we see "us" everywhere we look.

Well, now it's time to say goodbye.

As much as we love this house, we have a strong desire to get out to some land.  To have a place where our kids can run, explore and raise animals.

But until that time comes, we knew we needed to get our house sold, so that when the Lord does bring the right property along, we can jump on it without the contingency of selling our house.

So, yes, in 8 days I'm due to have a baby.

And in 30 days we close on our house and hand the keys over to a new couple who just moved into town.

Moving day will be a bitter-sweet day.  We will be one step closer to our dream of living in the country, but we will also be saying goodbye to a house that we will have brought 3 brand-new Wheelers into.

We have so many memories here...

But our kids are so young, we know there are even MORE memories ahead of us and we PRAY that's out on land somewhere, someday!

I'll try to keep you all updated on the journey we're about to embark on, but I also wanted to let everyone know that after April 25th, we won't have internet access in our humble abode anymore. (A choice we're making to pursue simplicity and money savings!)

No worries though-I'll post pics of our new blessing before then!

Thanks for all the prayers and encouragements as we take this step of faith to follow the Lord as He directs our steps in raising our family!!!

Baby Number 5 is a....

I have so many WONDERFUL blog friends that are so faithful to follow me and comment even though I've been pretty lousy lately at keeping up with blog world!  I feel so thankful for each of you and wanted to be sure to share my exciting news with you all...

We're having another precious baby boy!!!

We found out a few weeks ago that the Lord is knitting another Warrior in my womb!  We are so very excited and can't wait to see his little face!

His name will be Ezra Grant and we're planning to have him right here in our home! 

We'd love if you'd join us in prayer for a healthy birth and healthy baby!

Around here, we like to keep things pretty interesting so stay tuned for part 2 of our adventure as we prepare to pack up our house and move to...well, we don't know yet, but more on that later :) 

And again, thanks so much to all my faithful blog friends, for your love, support and even the check-up e-mails some of you have sent me!  I look forward to meeting you all face-to-face some day...even if it's in heaven!!!
