I've got a sweet little guy snuggled up on my chest for the night. My hubby is out at Wal-mart buying a new TV for our bedroom (Merry Christmas babe!), and my other 2 littles are snuggled up in their new rooms.
We did it! We moved. It wasn't across the country like I thought. It was just 3 miles north. But oh, how it feels like home.
I can't really explain it. My babies sleep good here. We sleep good here. It is just us. And it feels good.
I loved our other house. And when we moved in 3 years ago, we thought it would be our 20 year home. We didn't know the Lord would grow our business the way he did, and grow our hearts into wanting more babies. We didn't really know anything then. (And we still don't know anything for the record.)
But I do love it here. We see turkey everyday.
This is our backyard. We have 3 1/2 acres and a creek back there. (There will be a pool soon enough!)
Luke and I saw 3 deer in the backyard one morning.
It's just like a little slice of heaven.
It's a mess. Don't get me wrong....I have had a moment everyday since we moved in of being completely overwhelmed.....moving is absolutely crazy. I'm ready for everything to be in it's place and for us to be settled. I want to get back to work and to some kind of normalcy and schedule. I know it's going to take a bit of time. That's okay.
I can't wait to host here. Christmas is going to be a blast. There is so much room for the kids to run and play. And we finally have a house big enough to comfortably host the Dalke clan!
My kids are already exploring. Daddy took them on an adventure exploring the creek yesterday. Oh, the adventures they'll have back there!
What can I say? Life is good. I'm beginning to see the end of the moving madness approaching. And life will go on.
It's not what I thought it would be, but it's still the beginning of something new. And I can't wait to see what happens next.
It's always an adventure.....
