The journey begins....

Well a few months ago the hubs was offered an option to improve his career within his current company. The opportunity was promising and after prayer we felt it is what God has for our whole family at the moment. The job opportunity takes us from our home in Missouri to Virginia! We knew when he began working with this company that it would involve traveling and were prepared for that. To decide to take an opportunity all the way on the east coast, so far from family and friends definitely has taken a leap of faith!

So over the past few months we have been lining out house sales, house purchases, spending time with friends, figuring out how to say goodbye (not doing a great job of it), and planning to just say "see you soon." Now here we are. I really can't believe the time is here. The movers came and packed up all our stuff (an odd feeling to have complete strangers pack your belongings), the moving truck loaded it all up and left us with an empty home (also a very odd feeling). We hugged, cried, hugged some more, I cried more... and now we're about to take off in the plane tomorrow to Virginia.

The hubs drove down ahead of us and with help from his mom, has been painting their lives away in the new house. Tomorrow our kids, my mom, and myself get on the plane. The kids first plane ride, and my first with a 3 year old and a 1 year old. We're armed with snacks, books, and other various entertaining items and are praying for the best.

Overall we are nervous and excited for the next stage in our journey. We know we have made life long friends in Missouri who we can't wait to see again soon. And look forward to what the path will lead us to in Virginia. Please be in prayer for our family and our kids in the transition, we know God has a good plan and are excited to see what unfolds next!!!

"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans for good and not for evil, plans for hope and a future..." Jeremiah 29:11
