Hey everyone. I just wanted to post a few pictures and give an update. We are slowly getting settled into our new/old house. It is amazing how much has happened in the past few months. Moving to Mississippi was not in our plans, but God has done some amazing things. We initially leased a house while we waited to close on the sale of our home in Ohio. It was a wonderful thing in that it allowed us to get familiar with the area and take our time shopping for a house. The home we finally settled on is everything we hoped it would be. It is on three acres and it has a pool. The house itself is older, we are working nonstop, but it is fun. We really enjoy doing things around the house, and we don't have to ever worry about being bored.

This picture was taken at our rental house the beginning of the summer. The kids enjoyed the little pool, but they couldn't wait to get to the new house so they could play in the big pool.

Since moving in, John has taken on many projects. The above picture is our hall. John took out the one small light in the middle of the hall. He installed a pull down staircase to make attic access easier and put up two lights. It made a huge difference. One of our next projects will be to remove the lovely wallpaper and paneling from the walls and paint.

This picture was of the first dead tree John had to cut down. As soon as we moved in he had to buy a chain saw. He has definitely gotten lots of use out of it. The house in the background is across the street from us. I just love the neighborhood we are in. It has lots of character. None of the houses look the same and all the trees make it feel like you are in a park. We are really looking forward to many years here.
