The Birthday Boy

Gabriel is 7!

After enjoying a quiet day at home on his actual birthday, Gabriel wanted to invite a few of his new friends over.  We had 10 children total in our home for pizza and cake.  When Gabriel blew out his candles he wished, "that his new friends could come over any time he wanted!"  We are so thankful for new friends who helped distract us on our first birthday celebration without family.

No place like home...

Well, we are here! We arrived in Little Rock, Arkansas at the end of December.

The movers have come and gone. FamilyLife staffers arrived and did their best to help us get settled. New friends have brought meals, and we have learned our way to Walmart. Yet, there seems to be no place like home. Which is actually kind of funny since we left our home well over a year ago. We have since lived in two different "homes" and stayed with many loving families as we have progressed on our journey.

This move has been hard - hard for alot of reasons. This is the farthest that we have lived from our families since we married. Our Grandparents are much older, and we have small children who are very attached to friends and family.

But for now, home is wherever we settle with the loved ones that God has given us. So, yes, we are home; even though it is now in Arkansas. We have each other, and we have confindence in our Savior and where He has placed us.

More updates and news to come as we unpack and get settled.
