Frist Meal In Our First House


Tonight was teacher delivery night at MES. It is an annual fundraiser where teachers and staff deliver pizzas ordered by students and their families through Papa Johns.  My kids love doing this every year, and how perfect that we had a new house to show which ever teachers delivered our dinner.

Now, since I have failed blogging for 2017--I probably should mention that the new house will keep Thomas at our beloved MES, and it will move Gracie to Chickahominy Middle School (better) for the 8th grade.

We ate on a fold out table and folding chairs, but the kids loved it.

Our first official meal in our first official house!

We Bought A House


17 years in the wanting, and dreaming, and hoping, and waiting...it is finally ours.

Our own 4 walls,
our own yard,
our own space to love and nurture,
paint and work,
grow and invest in.

We waited...

He answered us in His time as He always has.






***Thank you Grace for coming over and taking some family pictures on our big day for us--and for being our first official visitors!! **
