Moving Into Our NEW HOME!

Our house doesn't look THIS bad anymore, but there are definitely many boxes still to be unpacked.



We did have a couple surprises when unpacking...


However, we are now HOME in a semi-permanent way.
Praise God!

And so many thanks for great friends who helped make the work so much easier!
You are the best!


Love, Us.

Memorial Day Weekend in Oregon

OK. Now that we are (almost) settled and have decent internet access and speed,
I promise to be better at both taking pictures and putting them here for you to enjoy.
I obviously didn't do this during our time with family over Memorial Day.
In fact, all of today's photos were taken within the space of about an hour.
But, here are the few shots that I did get.
It was a great weekend - besides crazy food poisoning.
SO good to be home with family near!






Love, Us.

Backflash: Joe at Traning/School

FINALLY, the last of our spring pictures.
Here is just a peek into a few moments of Joe's endeavors this spring.

Backflash: Getting Ready for WA

We had to get a couple things done before we were ready to go to Washington.
We needed to acquire rain boots for all walkers.


We also needed to take our first ever standardized tests! 
I have been dragging my feet for years on this, because it was never required.
Now I am totally sold!
What a great tool, in so many ways!

Love, Us.

Backflash: The Spouse's Weekend in VA

Evangeline and I took a weekend trip out to see dad during his school this spring.
It was good to reconnect for a moment and to meet some of his cohorts.






Love, Us.

Backflash: T and Godmother Hallel

What a blessing to have some special time with her Godmother.

Backflash: Official Family Pics with Hallel

Here they are: The pictures that my mom will live off of until her next visit!
And yes, she has probably already added Joe to a copy to make it "complete".





Love, Us.
