On The Road Again!

We're on the move again!!
I'm so excited that I can finally blog about one of the biggest things happening in our lives the last few months.
Ed has accepted a new job with Traveler's Insurance in HOUSTON, TX! It is an amazing career opportunity that will open a lot of doors for him - not to mention the bonus of getting us back to Texas!
Obviously each move comes with mixed emotions as we'll miss the friends we've made here - but we're also excited about what God has in store for this next chapter in our lives!
This has been a roller coaster ride for us for the last 5 months. We've gone from thinking we might be moving to Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas and now, its Houston! It has been a wild ride, but we know God has a perfect plan and we're so thankful for that! Today is Ed's last day at Nationwide.
The next few weeks will be a little nutty for us - with having a new baby, Ed starting a job in Houston, putting our house on the market, buying a new house, etc. We are trusting God with the details and timing of it all.
We are so grateful for the time that we've had in Iowa - even though this winter was a little hard to take! We have loved the size of Des Moines, the fun things around town to do, the friends we've made, our wonderful church family and most of all, the work that God has done on our family here. We have been so blessed! Thank you to everyone here that made our lives so great!! We will miss you very much!

Yeeesssss! We're so glad that you're coming back. We've missed you all so much. Lauren and Josh, yes Josh, are great babysitters you know.

Anything baby wise happening yet? Well, I guess if you're blogging the answer is no. :)

Any baby updates? I'm in Florida and just couldn't help but check. I'm thinking about you and praying for a fast and peaceful delivery.
