Tuesday Letter.....

Dear Husband, PLEASE stop beating me in Boggle!!! It makes me so angry! Dear Jonny and Davy, I think we have finally come to the point where I can't understand half of what you are learning and therefore don't know how we can continue our teacher/student relationship. Dear Jesse, when will you stop saying your r's as awwww instead of arrrr?!! Dear Reuben, PLEASE let me sleep one night completely through without having to get up three times to take you potty!!! Dear self, why in the world did you agree to an 8 week challenge when you can barely make it through a day without sugar?! Dear mailman, thank you for all the packages this week....mail makes me happy. :0) Dear ARMY, thank you for taking such good care of your Troops! Unfortunately, you are taking my husband away for a year because nine months will throw off the balane of the entire ARMY deployment cycle! For that I don't know how I feel about you right now!

Tuesday Letter......STOLEN from Bek!

Dear Jonathan, must you always get a teenage attitude when I ask you take the dog out?! Dear David, the nose sniffing is REALLY getting annoying. Dear Jesse, when will the screaming end so I don't have to spend my days breaking up fights? Dear Reuben, you are going to be the death of me with the potty training. I don't know how many more nights I can get up two or three times and take you potty! Dearest Husband, I still refuse to believe I was the one who ruined your laptop. I can't help it that everything breaks when I touch it. Dear Credit people......HOW IN THE WORLD did MY social security number get all messed up?!!! Will it ever be good again?! How long must I run to and fro getting copies from the Social Security Office proving I am who I say I am. On a side note, how cool to be two different people with an alias! I could totally do the spy thing. Dear Chewy, could you please quit waking me up in the early morning hours with your barking to go out?! Dear Chocolate, I miss you and don't know how to live without you! I believe today is an eat lunch and go to the park day. I will post pictures later!

Before and After

So, here are some pictures of the new house. Just a few of the new things we've gotten. I will take more pictures as we get things put together. It isn't all that fancy right now and I probably won't hang anything on the walls. We will have to patch all the holes and stuff if we do that. I don't want to have to deal with that. So, I am going to decorate on tables and such with candles. Maybe the more places we live the more decorating I will do but I'm just not sure yet! Enjoy!

WOW......It's been awhile!

I am sure most of you know that we are moved now! We are getting settled into a house on post. I am enjoying it! It has it's down falls too but for the most part I am happy we have a place to call home. We are still working on getting beds. We were blessed to meet our new neighbors who let us borrow a queen size air mattress. WAY better than sleeping on the floor.

I am working towards getting paperwork done for the kids school, the dog has to be registered and micro chipped, and we have a few more papers to take to the housing office. The little neighborhood we live in is quiet and there are lots of other kids for the boys to play with. LOTS of women I've met in passing are curious about homeschooling and want to talk to me more about it. The schools down here are terrible.

We went to Phil's bosses house for lunch the other day and met his lovely wife. She is one of the sweetest people I've ever met. The LORD didn't give them any children so she spends her time blessing people in ways that I never could. They are a wonderful couple and also Independent Baptist. It was a blessing to spend the afternoon with them and my boys are absolutely in love with them. I think Russ and Sheryl when Josh and I were little!

I have learned how to get from our house to the Commissary and Exchange. We found the Library which we will be taking full advantage of at some point. I drove on the Interstate once and it was about all my heart could take. That was when we bought Phil's sporty little car. WHICH I AM IN LOVE WITH!

I am thinking about joining a running group down here that is a nation wide group called Running to Remember! They run to remember the fallen men and women who died protecting our freedom! I have been praying about it. They help you train for different things like marathons which I have always wanted to do. The Seattle Marathon is in July and I would really like to run it!

So, there is an update of sorts. Things are definitely different in some ways and it will take some more adjusting. I am sure though that our life here is going to be wonderful as long as we keep our focus on the LORD and his work!
