Our New Home

Well, it is late so this will be short, but I wanted to let everyone know that we are safe and sound in Breckenridge.
After moving and unloading for a total of 15 hrs yesterday we are now settled in the RV. It is quite cozy!
Tomorrow starts the next to-do list...switching banks, car insurance, etc. Oh, and trying to find a house. I'm hoping to get to mark that one off the list sooner than later....but we are making the best of the RV because we don't just want to settle on just any house!
Please continue to pray for us as we are settling in!
Love you all!

A New Adventure


I'm so sorry that I have not posted in such a long time! It has been a bit crazy and I have some exciting news to share...We are MOVING! When, where, and the end of February, to Breckenridge, TX, and because Peter got a job promotion. Peter will be the new O-line coach, district wide strength and conditioning coach, and assistant track coach. He will be working under Coach Freeman...who was his head coach at Brownwood when he played ball. He has always wanted to work for Steve and we are excited that he finally has the chance to do so! We know that this is all part of God's plan for our family and we are excited to see what He has in store for us! for some details on where we will be living once we get to Breckenridge. I know that you will all be jealous...we are going to be living in an RV! I know what most of you are have to be crazy...BUT actually it is a huge blessing. Peter's grandparents allowed us to use the RV as long as we need. If we didn't have the RV to live in that would mean that Peter would have to be in Breckenridge and Jackson and I would have to be here in Belton. We could live apart and make it work, but it is very hard. This week Peter has been gone since Tuesday afternoon and I'm so ready for him to be home. It is hard to be at home all day with Jackson and then all night, and then waking up and doing it all over again...and then there is no one to talk to because Jackson doesn't communicate quit as well as Peter. So, the RV is a HUGE blessing because it will allow us to be together as a family!
We are in the process of looking for a home. At this time in Breckenridge there are 2 homes that are in our price range. So, we are going to look at both homes again this weekend with our parents to get there opinions and then hopefully things will start moving in a direction where we can purchase a home! I will have more details as we get them!
Packing, packing, packing! That is all I'm doing...well that is how it feels. I have made pretty good progress. I have just about every room done except for our bedroom/bathroom. It is a little bit hard, because some things have to come to the RV with us and then everything else will go to a storage building until we find a permanent home. Our apartment right now is filled with tubes and boxes...a little messy but I keep telling myself that it is only for a short time! Hopefully the next two days I have everything pretty much done, so that next week I can do anything else that I suddenly think of and start the cleaning processes.
Please pray for Peter and I to continue to be wise in the decisions that we make. And most of all the God continues to guide us on this new adventure!
