We are moving! Not just houses, but States! We’re moving to……
Drew is originally from Florida and we are in the process of moving back to his home state! Crazy, huh?
Last month Drew was offered a job, one with better hours, better pay, and the ability to go back to school for his Master’s Degree. It is an excellent job at a highly respected financial firm, but we wanted to make sure we considered all of our options before we made a decision. After a lot of thought and prayer we decided that we couldn’t pass up the offer! Not only are we excited about the job but we are excited about being near Drew’s family too (oh, and not having to endure these Michigan winters!).
Drew started his job a little over three weeks ago and has been living in Florida since then. The kids and I are still in Michigan. We are looking into housing options in Florida and plan to move down when we can get something lined up. In the mean time I am busy packing up our current house in Michigan because our lease runs out on the 20th of this month!
|It’s just the beginning…|
Yes. It is crazy over here. =) Packing up a house by myself with three little kiddos and without my husband is not an easy task. But it is getting done! As of right now we are planning to put all of our stuff in storage and move in with my aunt and uncle until we can secure some housing for us in Florida. Then, Drew will come back to pick us up and help us move.

Although this is such a crazy time right now, we feel such a peace about our decision and so grateful for the way the Lord constantly provides for us. We are going to miss our friends and family in the North but we are excited about being near our friends and family in the South for a while. We probably won’t be in Florida for the rest of our lives but it’s where we’ll be for the next few years and we are anxious to begin our lives there!
|Thankfully I have two little helpers to help me out.|

If you would, please pray for me and the kids as we pack up our house in Michigan and stay with relatives. Not only is moving stressful on the kids but they also miss their daddy and that has been hard on them. Pray that the kids would adjust well and maintain good attitudes and that I would be able to do all that I need to on my own in order to move out next week. Thankfully, we’ve been staying in a furnished house this past year so I won’t have to move much furniture! Also, please pray that we would find housing for us in Florida soon so that we can all be together again!
God is GOOD and we know He’s got this. 😉
