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!!!

Wow exciting for your family! I know what you mean about leaving your home that holds so many memories, we just did that last summer and it was so hard for me.

So, without internet access, will you no longer be blogging or email?

I'm excited for your new journey! We bought our 20 acres almost 6 years ago, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the land. We love hearing nothing but the birds chirping, the wind blowing, and children laughing. I hope the Lord brings you your new property soon! I'm going to miss you and your blog updates so much. You're a bright spot in my day. ♥

Best of luck and I will miss you. Keeping you in my prayers.

I know about moving when we left Ohio 3 yrs ago. It was tough.

Oh Grace, you are such an encouragement! You're outlook on life really blesses me! How exciting for your growing family to move to land! :) Congrats on the sale of the house and I can't wait to see pictures of your newest blessing! I'll miss your posts!

Well bless your hearts...what a wonderful adventure! I pray God will help you find just the right country home for your kids to grow up in!

You are doing it the smart way...selling your house first. Then no worries of double payments.

Are you renting in the meantime!

Blessings with your new little one. Hope the delivery goes well and you will have an easy time of it. (:>)

You could keep your blog and update us once in awhile from the public Library computers. (Just a thought)

Congrats! You are so brave. My husband wanted to move, but the minute we found out about our baby we decided that moving and baby did not mix financially. Well, it sounds like everything is working out. Will really miss your wonderful blog posts. Yes, if you can use the library for occasional updates! Blessings on your new baby and new move. How exciting!
