The blog front has been somewhat quiet lately.  We've been busy! 
 We are moving a week from tomorrow into a little house that will be perfect for us...once we get rid of a TON of stuff.  But who needs stuff? I was just looking at my favorite blog today The Big Picture and the article was about the displaced peoples of Africa due to all the unrest and civil wars.  And I'm complaining about downsizing? I don't think so. So I happily downsize and am thankful.  
Shaun and I have also been busy losing weight.  It was time. I started another blog just for that.  It's called Change is the Name of the Game. I have a few entries on there but haven't had time for more.  So we've been downsizing on that front as well. 
There are a few other fronts we are downsizing on but that will have to wait.  
I said to Shaun the other day that it feels like we are being true to what we believe and how we desire to live life...finally. It's a very nice feeling.  It's energizing to us...which is good because we have a lot of energy that needs to be put out.  
We are looking forward to being moved and settled. It's been since last July as we are ready.

So many things

Lately, we've been busy trying to figure out our lives.  We don't know where we will live as of next month.  We have to be out of this house by April 1. It's upsetting. It's frustrating. And the bottom line is I don't want to move BUT move we oh well.
We have been blessed on so many levels since we found out we have to move. Family has been amazingly supportive as have our friends.  There are days when the stress just weighs us both down.  It's exhausting and very wearing.  Some days we don't feel we can take any more pain, struggle, or stress...and then we keep going. God always seems to gives us hope even in the most trying of times.  I am not going to say the specifics of the amazing things He has done in our lives lately at this time...but suffice it to say we are blessed even in the midst of it all.
The girls are doing very well. They bring us so much joy...what gifts they are to us. Homeschooling is going very well. I am so thankful that we decided to undertake this particular adventure. I find it a massive gift.  There is so much I want to say...and in time I will. But for we are just like this humbled, amazed, and stressed.  :)
