Time for "Plan B" & in the meantime...

We have been enjoying our respite from the stresses of moving out of our house. Liz & Lewis have been most generous with sharing their guesthouse with us. We were waiting to hear if our Plan A was going to work out or not. We have heard now, and looks like we will be going with Plan B, which is to live in some type of temporary housing at our farm. We are exploring some options we may have with the structures that are already there, or with possibly bringing in something like a mobile home. Hopefully, we will get it figured out fairly quickly so we can ease the stresses of transitional living!

In the meantime, the kids have been rather busy recently. Cordell & Ryan are participating in a First Lego Robotics Challenge and so have been busy with their teams preparing for it. Cordell's team is researching the lungs and respiration, and Ryan's team has narrowed their research down to the use of biomedical engineering helps for macular degeneration. Rather interesting!

Cordell & Jenny are both playing basketball with the homeschool teams through RHAA, and have had practices twice a week.

We had to put up some new fencing for our cows at our new farm. Tomorrow is the big day for turning them out of their temporary round pen.

Well, all for now.

Move - Phase 1 is almost complete!

Well, what a crazy week last week! Tuesday some kind friends came and helped us pack up the kitchen and downstairs, and really lots of places in between even. Thursday was the big moving day, and again, with the help of lots of friends we packed the U-Haul full. Friday we moved out the rest of the stuff that didn't fit, and started cleaning. By Saturday at 2:30 we had the house completely finished and clean. Which was good because the buyers were planning to arrive around 4:00 to start moving in!

Also on Saturday, we had an interview with the board at Little Prairie Bible Camp for the caretaker's position at the camp. They are also interviewing another family and decided to take another 2 weeks before they make their decision. So, we still don't really know where we are moving to. In the meantime, we need to finish moving some farm equipment, get the cows moved, and we are looking for a mobile home to park on our land. Oh, and we are staying with my generous sister in the meantime.

We are staying in the guesthouse, which has its own bathroom, fridge, and microwave. The kids take turns staying in the big house with their cousins. It is working just fine and we are most grateful for it.

Well, we will keep you posted... It seems life is never dull!
