the sign

I watched our realtor put this in our yard Monday nite, but, it wasn't until I drove past it Tuesday that I felt the true impact of it. Our house is really for sale.

This has been harder for me than I imagined. Maybe becauses Joey built it for us. Maybe because so many memories have been made here. Maybe because I feel like I live in the treetops when I look out back or because the kids love exploring the woods. It is just a beautiful place that we are blessed enough to call home.

I know it is time to move on. To do more with what we've been given. To make more memories. But, I am such a sentimental gal.

For those of you who don't know - we have another piece of property just down the road we have our sights set on. It has a really nice creek flowing thru it and a small house on it that we would build around. It's very exciting to consider building again - there are definitely several things we'd do differently.


Now, we wait for the Lord's timing. I have completely turned it over to Him. God will show us our next step when it is time. Right now- I will enjoy living here. This is where my heart is. This is my home.

For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Heb 3:4

Yesterday we celebrated 3/4 a year with Barron Hudson. He is getting even closer to crawling. He really tries to get his legs going now when he army drags. It's comical looking. His Dr gave him an A+ at his checkup. Even his ears were clear which has become a battle once again in our family (Brax and Bri have each had 2 sets of tubes). Yea! Oh, and we are trying all kinds of big people food now too!

Courtney!
Hey girl! I happened upon your blog via Amber's blog...I have been blogging for a year now and LOVE IT. Gracie just walked by and said "Hey! There's Briley!"

They don't miss a beat!

Anyway, I am glad I found the blog, I can keep up with your adoption process...I have prayed and thought about it often since Kindergarten was over :)
Take care! Amy

I love little Brax! He sure was trying his hardest to crawl last Thursday night. It won't be too much longer!

I love that I put Brax and meant to put Barron. I was thinking about Brax's super hero pic. Some babysitter!?
