The kids and I are still living in Michigan. I moved us out of our rental house on the 19th with the help of several of my aunts and uncles. Drew was of course in Florida during the move, my two brothers live out of state now, and my Dad was in Uganda so I was wondering who was going to help me move all of our stuff into storage! Thankfully, some of my wonderful extended family stepped in and offered to help. One of the perks of having a very large and close knit family!

A message for Isaiah on an especially hard day:
|A letter from Daddy!|
At this point we are planning to move down to Florida mid August. Drew and his Dad are going to drive up and then we are going to pack up all of our stuff into two trailers and hopefully be able to move it all down in one trip.
Once in Florida we will be staying in an extended stay hotel until we are able to secure more permanent housing for us. We are not crazy about spending 1-3 months living out of a hotel but we have decided that we need to be together again as a family, especially for the kids' sake and this is the best way to do it.

|He sent me back this picture and said, "Missing you while running!" Way to make me feel great about my decision to eat ice cream for dinner!|
Putting a letter in the mail for Daddy:

Although it's been a bit difficult and we are anxious to get back to "normal" we are so grateul for the way the Lord has provided for us throughout this move. We are extremely blessed to have such wonderful friends and family walking beside us. The Lord is FAITHFUL! He has been with us every step of the way and He will not leave us now. I saw this on Facebook the other day and it really resonated with me:
I'm so thankful that God's got this all under control and that I don't need to worry about how it will all work out!
