Today's Lesson....And Winner!

How to keep from clogging the toilet!
We do not need a whole role of toilet paper every time we use the potty.

I hung this is the bathroom.....

In hopes to remind this middle sister....

to only use 1-2-3 squares.

3 squares should get the job done.

Unless it's #2 then......never mind. I did not want this post to be about pee and poo.

I really don't know what I want this post to be about...

Kind of in a blogging burnout.

I haven't even used my camera in a couple weeks.(These are just phone shots)

So....

I guess just an update on us....

Still house hunting.

We actually found a house and I fell in love with it.

Thought it was the one.

Tree lined street, built in 1930's, cute charm, big yard, etc.....

Good price.

Everything we are looking for....

But God closed that door.

We are still knocking and praying he will open another door soon....

I think a year without a home has made me crave a house.

A house that doesn't move:)

Don't get me wrong, I LOVED our road trip.

I thank God we were able to take such an amazing trip.

I'm just ready to settle in a home and the kids are too!

Notice anything different?

Austin got his braces off! He's now wearing retainers.

Other than unclogging toilets, getting braces off, house hunting and the normal running around... nothing new with us.

We continue to be in prayer for God to guide us to our new home.

A note from Faith.

(Sloppy,but I love her heart....so I'll let it slide this time.)

She's right! He does have a plan for us. We are trusting in Him! Even though our situation right now is hard, we are excited to see what God has in store for our family.

He has always been faithful!

Hi Friends,

Praying for you!

I think you should find my husband a job down by you ... and then we can buy houses in the same neighborhood. :)

So ready to be done with our year long "waiting period". So ready to buy a house and settle some where.

Your "Big Sis",

Laurel :)

Hey girly! I can't believe you picked my comment to win the books. Thank you so much. I can't wait to read them with my kids. We have never studied the united states yet...so that'll be a wonderful start. You are too sweet. I love the letter from Faith. It just shows what you are teaching them through all your trials. I know it's not an easy time for you right now....but GOD!!!! I can't WAIT to see the wonderful plans HE is about to unfold in you and your family's lives! You are a blessing and a woman with a BIG heart. I know if you could see in the eyes of God directly...you'd see a beautiful Godly princess reflecting back at you. You are HIS princess:) Love you...and thank you sooo much for the books! What a treat!
