We made it….

…but not without enduring the most terrifying flight ever. Not fun…especially with two small children.
We made it, though….thankful to finally be “home.”

Great Nana.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 11:47 pm
Tonight we had a delicious dinner prepared by Great Nana Anna :-)
Now it needs to be known that Great Nana is talented in many ways.  A great cook, incredible tennis player, and published writer (just to name a few).
But most impressive, is her painting talent.  She is an incredible artist who has painted some amazing pictures.
Great Papa gave Irelynd a tour of Nana’s art room, and let her pick out a painting to take home with us.  Now we just need Great Nana to come visit us so she can give Irelynd some painting lessons. :-)
Thanks, Great Nana and Papa, for the wonderful meal and a fun evening!!

Dentist.

Irelynd had her first dentist visit today.  She did great!  I was actually completely shocked at how well she did!
Irelynd thought it was such an adventure….especially riding in the rocketship chair.
She got her teeth counted, cleaned, polished and flossed.
Such a big girl!

Answered prayer.

We received an offer on our house today.  Not exactly what we had hoped for, but the result of this offer is a major burden lifted off our shoulders….and that to us is nothing but priceless.

Jody and Andy have finally received word that they can pick up their babies.  Yes, Zeke and Kora are finally coming home!
Echoing the praise and thanks of so many…God is so good!!

Hard.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 4:43 pm
It’s been rough saying goodbye to so many dear friends over the past couple of weeks.  Today was one of the hardest.
We had to let Wendy head back to her family today.  So grateful to her husband and daughters for loaning her to us for the past few days.  She has been the most incredible help to the girls and I over the course of this move.
We slipped away for a few hours yesterday so Wendy could see some of the local sights…Garden of the Gods and The Air Force Academy, to name a few.  So fortunately it wasn’t all work, there was some play.
Thanks for all your help, Ms. Wendy….we are going to miss you so very much! See you soon! :-)

Three years old.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 9:55 pm
Hoping this won’t turn into another double post. I keep starting posts…then end up getting kicked off the internet. Quite embarassing.
Anyway…yesterday was Irleynd’s third birthday. It feels like we have been celebrating birthdays all month long. (Oh right, that’s what happens when four out of four family members have the same birthday month):-)
Cake+ice cream+presents=one happy birthday girl.

Goodbye Texas.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 9:30 am
We said our final farewell to Texas on Thursday.
The movers arrived first thing in the morning…they finished up and headed out by early afternoon.
The girls and I are now in Colorado. We had a fairly uneventful flight thanks to the help of my friend Wendy. She was such a HUGE help on the plane…could not have done it without her.
Jon left this morning to make the final drive out to Cali. Did I mention that today is his birthday?  Nothing like driving for eighteen hours on your birthday :-(  At least he has Kobi and Owen to keep him company!
