That's what we are up to right now- waiting. Waiting for a house, waiting for the job to pick up, waiting on a slower-than-dial-up-internet. Waiting.

We have looked at every house in both Lamesa and Brownfield and have found some promising one, but nothing that was quite right. Well, one was, but they refused to come down on the price. So we said we would be patient and wait for something else to come on the market. Well, one came up that is not even on the market yet- just a lady we heard about that was going to put it up for sale soon. So we went and looked at it and it is a contender. It's big but I would want to change so much about it. So we are just trying to decide if it would be the best option for us. I think we may put in an offer and if they go above what we want, we will walk away. Pray for us on this! We are still trying to figure out which town we should even live in! I'm so thankful for my parents letting us live here. I know it can't be easy!

Daniel is still in training at BE Implement. He's still not exactly sure where or what he will be doing permanently, but he is hanging in there. He gets to go to St. Louis on Monday for work, so that should be fun! The kids are also doing pretty good. They have broken a few things already, but thankfully the grandparents are forgiving!

Please keep praying for us as so much in our life is still up in the air!

Our Temporary Home

Well, we are here in Welch. It's been a crazy few weeks, but we made it. Leaving Round Rock was so hard- harder than I even thought it could be. Miss you Round Rock friends!

So we are here at my parents until we can find a place to live. We decided that we are going to go ahead and buy a house because it's a good time to buy and because we are tired of moving! We were hoping to find a place that is large enough for us to grow into and make our own. All the houses are older and need some updates, but we are ok with that. There was one I had looked at online and thought we would like, but it was way out of our price range. We looked at it and really thought it had potential, so we made a really low-ball offer and are waiting to hear if they accepted! It's got a lot of square footage and is really well-built. And it has a ton of closets! I think I counted 12 or something. Crazy. I will post pictures if we get it!

Please pray for us as we continue to transition. So far Daniel is having to be patient with the job as he learns the business, Addalie only has boys to play with, and the kids are not sleeping very good. But I know it will all get better. We have already loved spending so much time with family and I love seeing my kids bond with others. Asher has taken to his uncle Kanyon and both the kids love the animals that are always around! We will keep you all updated on the happenings!
