Packing and Packing and.......


We have been busy packing this last week. Benjamin ships out now in just eleven short days! We decided to put all of our belongings into storage until he is finished and we find out where we will be stationed. And that wont be for another three months. So putting everything in storage will help us save some money and I wont be all by myself here. It has been so very very nice living in this condo. I am having a hard time packing up everything. On the nice side, I get to go and stay with the family! First I am going up to visit my Grandma in Henderson Nevada and see her new house. Then my parents and sibling in Colorado. And then up to Ohio to see Jon and Marie and of course the NEW baby! :) God is so good. He has blessed us bountifully and I feel our cup overflowing.
Happy Monday everyone!

What a special time this is for you--for so many reasons! I'm so glad you were still around to see little Asher, and now you'll get to see other family and Marie's baby. Such great memories you're making! I'm sure it will help to fill the time while Benjamin is away, too.

I hope the packing goes well. We had to pack everything up before we moved to Israel, and it was tough! It was fun to unpack it though, after we moved back! :)

Glad to know all is well. You know with you staying so busy that will be nice while Benjamin is away. He will be home before you know it. Enjoy being pregnant it does go by so fast and before you know it you will be holding your own little blessing. We will be praying for you to have safe travels.

Davene, yes, your right it has been perfect being here and being with the family and the time has worked out perfect! I can't wait to unpack! How long were you guys gone in Israel?

Thank you Katheryn, I am going to enjoy this pregnancy and I want to treasure it! Yes, staying busy will help the whole transition for Benjamin and I! :) Can't wait to see your newest one! :)

Elizabeth, I just now saw your comment. We were in Israel for 2 and 1/2 years...long enough for our firstborn to grow up into a 3 year-old, and for our second child to be born. :)

It was a great experience, though difficult at times, but I'm very, very grateful for that time.

Wow Davene! 2 1/2 years!!! Well, three months is nothing! :) It must have been a great time for you both. Thanks for sharing :P
