The Start of a New Chapter.


Playing in the pool at Wisconsin Dells


She was not a fan of this slide! 

Daddy with his babies! 

One night we just had pie for dinner because Betty's Pies is the best!! If you come to visit us, we'll
bring you to Betty's Pies! 

This is what life is all about... growing up surrounded by your cousins! This was taken at a surprise retirement party for my
Dad this past weekend! 

Gooseberry Falls, MN... not too far from our new home

scrunched up nose, yup she's my daughter

So thankful my children have a strong, faithful male role model in their life!
Thanks for being an awesome daddy honey!

My Boy!

And so begins our new journey in Minnesota!




The boxes are all unpacked, all that is left to do is decorate and to get a few more things we need for the house. JC is still waiting to start work (we thought he would have been able to start last week, so we're a little frustrated about that) We have a to do list of things we need to get done to become residents of MN that I'm slowing chipping away at and have to wait to get paid to be able to do some of the things. Money is tight because a big move like this cost quit a bit to do, but we are trusting that God will continue to provide like he always has. Over the last 2.5 weeks we have savored all the family time we have had, I'm sad this time is coming to an end as I head back to work tomorrow morning. At the same time I am excited to start at my new store and get back into the swing of things. Thank you to those of you who prayed for our journey to MN from NH, we kindly ask that you keep those prayers coming as we continue to get settled and figure out everything that comes with a big move like this! The kids are adjusting well, but will be going through another big transition as they start with a new daycare provider next week. I will be doing another post with pics of our new home soon, so stay tuned! I hope your week is going well & that you're finding blessings in the everyday things!

Changes.

Wow, this summer has flown by. At the beginning of July I accepted a full time position at Walgreens as part of the management team. It has taken a lot of getting use to for all of us, we are still adjusting to mommy not being home as much. I'm enjoying the work that I'm doing and am excited about staying with Walgreens as a company long term.

Our little man is walking now and quickly learning to run to keep up with his sister! He's loving being able to keep up with his sister, he's such a sweet baby and makes us laugh all the time with his goofy personality! 


Kylie continues to amaze us with how smart she is, I swear she learns several new words daily! She just finished taking a 4 week swimming class at the ymca and loved it!! She could not wait to go swimming, daddy with able to be there for 2 of the lessons which was great! She is a typically 2.5 year and we're doing our best to try and teach her how to deal with her emotions!! 

We are so thankful for our babies and that they are happy and healthy... that is honestly the most you can pray and ask for! 

As we look ahead in the coming weeks, we are packing up the house and moving.... to MINNESOTA!! This move we thought long and hard about and spent a lot of time in prayer and the Lord has blessed us and supplied many things for us along this process! We will be moving to Two Harbors, MN and will be living 3 blocks from my oldest brother Brain & Sister in law Shannon (and their 4 awesome kiddos)! We will be renting a cute little house with 4 bedrooms, so the kids don't have to share a room anymore which is a huge answer to prayer! Our rent will be half of what we are paying for rent right now, so finically this is a very smart move for us. We are very excited to have a fresh start for our little family, JC has already spoken to the VW dealership in Duluth and will hopefully be starting work there within the first few days of us getting there. I am in conversation with the hiring manager with Walgreens for the Duluth area... so prayers that they can make room for me and that I can transfer as a manager would be much appreciated! 

As excited as we are to make this move, we are sad to say bye to family, friends & co workers here. So if you could just keep us in your prayers as these next 2 weeks are going to be very stressful with packing up the house and preparing to say goodbye. We are planning on leaving Sunday August 14th as our current rental agreement ends on the 15th. JC and I will be working until next Friday the 12th... so I'm trying not to stress about finding the time to pack with both of us working full time. 

We will keep you all updated as we make our long track from NH to MN on Facebook and Instagram! We were able to sell our car, so now we just have our santa fe that will pull a trailer behind it... this way we only need to pay for gas for one vehicle and we can all travel together as a family in one vehicle!! Prayers for our sanity as we drive roughly 26 hours with two young kids would be much appreciated!! ;) We brought Zeke to the humane society a little over a week ago (this was very emotional for JC and I as we have had Zeke since he was a baby and we got him shortly after our Maggie passed away) but we didn't think it was fair to him to move him half way across the country for the 3rd time. So for the first time since before we were even engaged we won't have a dog in our house... at least for right now! 

So these are the big big changes happening in our life right now! We appreciate your prayers and look forward to sharing new updates from our new home in Two Harbors, MN!!
