An Interesting Twist

Today Shauna was in the garage cleaning up a little. Chris was in there with her just looking at her. All of a sudden he said " Whatsoever you laughing at me?". We think the King James Version of the Bible is sinking in:)

Finally Back

Well, from all appearances our blog had been abandoned. Due to moving, dial up Internet, no camera and life, we have not been at all consistent with blogging. Hopefully that is about to change. We have found that dial up works great...from about 4:00pm to 6:30pm. Therefore any pictures that we want to upload have to be at that time. We will do our best to keep everyone up to date on what we're doing but this is a trial run. Our blog may end up "dead" after all.

Completely Optimistic,
Kayla

Moving

One of our many piles of boxes.


***



There's a lot to moving that we kids hadn't realized. Eleven years ago when we moved, our job was pretty much limited to playing "Pussy Wants a Corner" in the empty rooms while Dad and Mom did the work. This time, though, we kids helped pack, label, tape, clean, and carry for a couple weeks. The move took longer than expected because our old house closed first, necessitating a move to our friend's property for the intervening five days. We were very blessed by all of our friends through the move, with them helping clean, letting us borrow a trailer and storage space, offering places to stay, and moving us, even if it meant driving four hours in a day. Since we have moved, the Lord has also blessed us with meeting many fellow believers in our community who are very friendly and welcoming. In a later post, we'll show how we like the house:).

We're Back!

Hello, friends! No, we have not fallen off the face of the earth, and yes, we do still have internet in this far off farm. The internet, though, is dial-up, so posts will probably be coming a little less often (after I get caught up), and there might be fewer pictures. But for now, we are still blogging.

Walking in the Mud...

...has some consolations. We are enjoying the process of becoming country girls, and getting the new accessories!




We're Moving

As most of you know, we are moving "to a big home, in the country". The house we are moving out of is the place were everybody has lived the longest. The longest Mom or I had lived anywhere before was 22 months. Dad had lived in one place a little longer, but all of our lives were fairly mobile until September 1998, when we moved in here. It has been strange to see the moving boxes again, and actually be a help filling them (last time we moved, Mom, not impressed with an eight and ten year old's packing skills, sent us outside). So here are a few farewell photos of the house that has sheltered us for eleven years.



One of the quirks of this house was the electrical system. I don't think we yet have all of the switches and lights matched up.


Goodbye! May the next owners be as blessed as we were.
