Moving, Moving, Moving

It's been far too long since I've updated here - but we've been SO busy getting ready for a more permanent living space. We officially move on Saturday into our new home. It's the top 2 floors of a large home and will be really good space for us. We've had access to it for the past couple of weeks and have gotten it move in ready. Alinea's room is bright green - we call it electric celery - and we're using a couple shades of pink and lots of butterflies to decorate. It's really come together beautifully. She is giddy every time she walks in there. I am so thrilled we've been able to fulfill this promise to them and give them the bedrooms they have dreamed about.

Jacob's room is a castle theme - we're having to make more of his things, so some of it will have to wait until we're moved in - but he's got a throne, and dragons, shields and swords - and he's very excited to have a space that is fit 'for a king'! (well, at least a prince or knight!)

We've done lots of painting and prep work for the move and now there are just a couple of tiny things to tie up and then the work of getting the stuff 'here' to 'there' - it's just 11 addresses down the street and I joked with friends that if I had access to four shopping carts we'd each be wheeling them down the street! The kids are so relieved we didn't! HA!

I'll post pictures as soon as we get furniture in.

Please pray if you think of us - we do the big move on Saturday. I'm on my second round of antibiotics for bronchitis and I'd really like to be returned to full health soon! Thanks a lot!
