Don’t give up. Don’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. You keep your chin up. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of... Jesus Christ, they come. -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
The military has asked us to move, yet again. This time we are back in Ohio. We found a house on a few acres of land, out in a country setting. And I absolutely LOVE it. Some of my kids prefer a bigger city setting, but this is what I have been wanting for a long time. We might even get chickens. Fresh eggs sound amazing, right? Well, for now, we are unpacking the second moving truck and trying to find a place for everything. Older houses have more storage - which is definitely what we need! We have six bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. We plan to paint and put tile in the bathrooms (the linoleum is warped). This will hopefully be our forever home. I am not keen to move away ever. Here are some photos:
I took Michael and John down to Miami for their spring break. My best friend, Sarah, lives there and we had a great time with her. We went to the ocean almost every day and swam in Sarah's pool multiple times a day. It was fabulous - and I bonded even more with the boys. So thankful for them! Tyler didn't want to make the trek down to Miami, so he took the other kids camping in Virginia.
We are still experiencing new traditions with our triplets - and this was their first Easter! They introduced a new tradition with us where we crack the boiled egg against another person's egg and see who is the victor (whoever has an egg that doesn't crack).
