Happy Summer!

We've had some big changes come about the last few months which has brought our blog posts to a screeching halt. We sold our house (yea!) and moved into Matt's parents' home until we decide what's next for our family. We knew we were quickly out growing our home, but we weren't really sure what the outcome would be if we actually sold the house. We have decided that it makes sense to stay at least until baby Eva is born, and it will be wonderful having the extra help from family only a few feet away! Moving our almost family of five into the beautiful, newly yet 2ish bedroom finished basement has required some creativity and stretching for us. However, I know the Lord is using the situation for good (Romans 8:28- one of my favorites!) to teach me to really live out what we encourage our children to do, and that is to be joyful always and give thanks in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:16,18). So, it has been my prayer to be able to say along with Paul:

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Philippians 4:11
