Hi There

-Brennan's 11th birthday is Monday!  Where has the time gone?  He's so witty and smart.  We are so blessed by our eldest.  He has such a compassionate heart and just cherishes his littlest siblings.  He'll be a great daddy.

-Our family is going through some spiritual growing pains.  Jared wrote about it here.  I am super curious to see how it all works out.  The Lord is good regardless of circumstances and He cares for us.

-We may be living in Platte City for a time.  We'll know more come first of the week.  Right now we are examining all our options.  Good news is, as a buyer, the options are almost endless.  I know that people love weekends, but when time is of the essence, weekends really put a kink in things.

-I just want to take a bullet and thank you all.  I know that I've had a one track mind since May.  I appreciate so much those of you who have just loved me through it.  I know that if I'm tired of talking about it you have to be tired of hearing about it.  It has been a whirlwind of ups and downs.  More downs than ups honestly, and I have really needed encouragement and support.  As a stay at home, homeschooling mom my life is my nest and my nest has been in upheaval for months.  It has in turn affected me emotionally and mentally.  There's no break from the madness and world of boxes.  It's times like these that an organized cubical in an office building somewhere sounds like a spa day compared to living out of boxes in my own house.  Ultimately I know that it will end eventually, we will be settled again, it isn't a life threatening issue and my family is safe.  I know those things in my rational mind, but for now my irrational self is in the driver's seat.  Thank you for loving me anyway.

We love you guys. If we had our way we would take care of the problem for you, but then you'd miss the chance to grow closer to God. It's only worth it if it's hard on ya, (and doesn't kill you!)
Hugs.
I know a good rental company if you guys want to look that way for a while.
