We have arrived in Charleston and Jeremy checked into his unit this morning. The base is very pretty, as is the rest of the area that we have had time to see. We are staying right near the river tonight (near downtown) and will get billeting on base tomorrow afternoon.

We saw two houses today on base . . . we won’t ever get anything quite as beautiful as what we had in Nebraska, but the homes here have benefits of their own. I think we ruled out purchasing or renting off-base tonight, but will see what happens as we see more houses on base.

The children are doing well, though we are all struggling to get over this cough/cold thing we have had for a few days now. They were champs on the road trip! Elijah has asked for some of his friends including “Cwiss” (Moro) “Ruschel” and “Haddah.”

We will update this blog as soon as we get a chance when we have a good phone number.

We miss so much of what/who we have grown to love. . .this will be VERY GOOD, though, I keep reminding myself!

We have arrived in SC and are spending the night with my sister and her family in Western SC.  Tomorrow we will go to Charleston to check in there. . . more news later.

In the meantime, Angie has posted pics of our photo shoot. . . Check them out and send me your votes for your top five or so in a comment. . . leave the photo number if you can.



Movers Arrive!

Movers arrive tomorrow – I will request that they pack my office and this computer last, but we will see what happens. We will be at the following numbers if anyone needs us:

402-292-2868 (Home until Wednesday the 19th of September)
402-218-7946 (Cell phone we will keep until we have a new number in Charleston – a prepaid, VERY expensive, but useful especially for short phone calls!)

Thank you for praying for us as we make this adjustment. . . especially for the children as they probably don’t really understand what’s going on.



Life Update

As expected, life is staying busy as we prepare for our move to SC. We had an amazingly successful yard sale and feel great about the amount of excess we removed from our house! I’m posting a few pictures since it has been a little while.

Merry is growing faster than ever and she seems like such a little lady! She’s pulling up to stand in any location she can. . . this is a photo we got of the first time she pulled up to stand on her own! I was putting Elijah to bed and turned around when I heard her laughing, and there she was standing up all on her own! What shocked me so much was that she had just started sitting up and crawling only days before!

Here she is, riding the rocking horse given by Aunt Naomi. . . the aunt who makes sure they have all the necessary “fun” toys that mommy is too nervous to purchase!

Going for a walk pushed in her car by big brother Elijah. . . he is so good with her and always wants to take care of her. . .
