House-side Fishing

ED9A2868The temporary housing we are living in right now, has turned out to be such a special place. While I look forward to getting into our own home, the charm of living on a farm has been really special.

The trailer we are in is at the back of a 100 acre farm… and we are not only surrounded by horses on both sides and the front… but we also have easy access to a beautiful pond.

Saturday Travis took the boys fishing there… and while we didn’t have much luck ;-) – it was still really cool to just be able to walk there and enjoy the outdoors. One thing we are learning though, is in South Carolina, if you intend to do anything outdoors… do it before it gets to hot. Seems like before 10am here its already 90F… gets so hot, so fast.

I want to invest in some insulated water bottles for the kids too… they complain about being thirsty constantly now, and plastic water bottles just don’t stay cold long enough. I was hoping to find a bottle that had some sort of SLING for the kids to wear it across their chest? Does anyone know of something like that available for children? That way I don’t have 4 water bottles shoved into my purse… Id love for them to have something THEY can carry on their own.

Below are a few more photos from the morning :) Enjoy.

Wifi is on!

After a couple weeks without Wifi, I can honestly say, we are glad its back on. :-) While it is nice to disconnect… with a business… and little ones, it is nice to have a wifi signal. Not to mention we have used up an insane amount of data on our phones. Even just lookingContinue Reading

Letting go

The last few weeks as you all know have been a little harder than normal. Lots of changes happeningā€¦ the natural trials with moving a family of 6, selling our first homeā€¦ and on top of it all sickness making its way through our family and then crippling myself for over a week. Not atContinue Reading

Sickness and Roadblocks

Thought Id type up a quick update while I had the ability. We have no internet but im using my phone as a hot spot to do a little “house hunting…” yup… you read that right. We may very well have to look for another house to buy. Out of respect for the seller ofContinue Reading

Farewell Canyons

A place we tried to go to on occasion here… was a place called Canyons. Its a burger joint in downtown… on Mondays they offered $1 Kidmeals with no limit! So we could all eat for relatively cheap. :) The kids loved it especially because they had a FREE balloon man there every monday. AlwaysContinue Reading

Less than a week

In less than a week we will be moved. Well, sorta. We pack up the moving truck this weekend, on the 4th of July no less… I guess you could say we have no plans for the 4th… :-\ – although I do hope we can do some sparklers or simple fire works with theContinue Reading

Look back

I have a book I made after the 1st year we had here in Atlanta. A book I wanted to fill with memories of that 1st year… One my boys could look back (esp. the older two) and remember how God moved throughout a circumstance that was less than ideal at the moment. He knewContinue Reading

Few Packing in betweens

In between all the packing we’ve been doing. I did try and break out the camera some. Tomorrow we will have the realtor’s photographer come in. Its part of her percentage she takes, so despite being fully capable of doing the photos myself, I’m handing that rope off to her photographer and sitting this oneContinue Reading

Rest of our Easter 2015 Pics :)

I totally meant to post these already… but im behind. Here are the rest of our Easter photos. We celebrated Easter with our old neighbors (who we lived beside for two years while in our City of Refuge Home). We have spent I believe every Easter with them since we moved here in 2011.
