The day we moved was a very sad day, though. I had one of the worst allergy attacks ever! Thank goodness for our great friends, Darren and Melisa, I'm not sure how I would have ever made it without them!!! And then walking around the trailer comepletely empty, I just cried. Every single memory Ronnie and I had together up until that point had been made in that trailer. Except for Hannah we had brought every baby home to that trailer. It might have been cramped, but we were happy!!!
But, God always has new beginnings and blessings right around the corner. As sad as we were to leave it behind and as scared as we were to be renting and not owning, we were excited to live in this new " big" house with a yard!!!! We have made plenty of new memories, our landlords are wonderful, wonderful christian people, whom we love dearly, and the children have learned so much living here and enjoying life to the fullest!!! Our landlords are one of the biggest farmers in southern Indiana, so there is always something going on around us. We are completely surrounded by corn fields (well this year it was bean fields), and you can always see a tractor or truck of some kind driving around. There is an old hog barn on the property we rent, so we have turned this place into a small little farm for us :) We don't know how long we may rent here, but God will definately let us know our time. We are starting a financial class this week, that I am super excited about, and it teaches the biblical examples of living debt free, so the ideal time would be until we can save up to buy a new house with cash. But who knows?!?!? We'll see what God has in store, he has definately taken very good care of us thus far, and I have no doubt he will continue to do so!!! I am so far beyond blessed, and I thank God everyday for everything he has given us!!!!
Just one of the many beautiful sunsets behind our "new" house.
The simple wooden swing in the tree out back.
A small glance at our garden this year.
Whites hanging out on the line to dry.
Our chickens in their coop.
I am so thankful for the simplicity of our life here at our new home. I just pray I can pass all this on to my children and that one day they will appreciate the small things in life.
