The kids were excited to have the storage unit emptied because being out of a bed for a few days gets old. We moved our stuff over before the end of the year and then had to go through it so we could use the space well. We are so happy to be in our own home with all of our own stuff. We feel so blessed we could be in Travis and Bree's basement while we were working on the house. They are great neighbors! We are so blessed to live where Kevin works and we are grateful Kevin's parents made this happen for us!
Now we have to completely settle in and get the rest of the boxes emptied! Samantha enjoyed teasing her friends about how she was moving and then they'd ask where and she would say next door. It is nice to move next door and not have to change schools, addresses, etc again!

Derrick has turned 9 and we just don't know where the time has gone! Each of our kids have made sacrifices this year while we have been in transition moving to the farm. They have not had birthday parties or played sports or done other activities since Kevin and I have been busy working to complete our house. They have done a great job being patient and doing the best with our situation!
Talking about each child for their birthday is now one of my favorite things. It is hard to think back and notice the things each child has done but I enjoy the opportunity that I get to do that because I want to remember what I love about each of our children and the things they are learning and the skills they are building.
We love that Derrick is in our home and appreciate his efforts as part of our family to keep our home a happy place. We love how he tries hard to choose the right and make others happy. He makes us happy!

String With Style. His reward was he could keep it and he has found many opportunities to wear it since.
