Is it really October 28th?

Wow! I can't believe the end of October is here! Even more than that, Ethan where's the same size gloves as me! He is only 5 and so big.

Property news: They called us today and told us that we will not be breaking ground until the spring. It is a bummer but we know that God has us right where he wants us. We may have the oppurtunity to purchase the lot right next to ours. How cool is that?! We are praying about that, and have no idea when we will know whether or not we can purchase it.

Thank you all for your prayers they are felt.

Update on the house

We were informed this last week that we are going to get the property we originally were going to get. This is exciting as the property is much bigger and we just love it. This is the property in the posted pics. Anyway, our contractor is in Alaska this week so we won't have a ground breaking date until Monday or Tuesday. This doesn't mean it will be this week that we break ground but hopefully soon.

The kids are all doing well. Ethan is doing so well in his Christian school. There are 36 students in the entire school ( K- 8th grade). This is a great thing for Ethan. Trinity is in Head Start this year, she doesn't even kiss me bye. She just goes off into class and is done with me. After her first day I asked her if she made any friends and she said "No, no I made lots of friends!" This was the coolest thing. She rides a little bus home every day and loves it! " The girl on the bus loves my earrings, I really like her." She is too funny. Penelope comes home after taking the other 2 to school and crashes. We really don't have any one-on-one time. Maybe she will get used to it.

Keep praying for us, we are praying for you.

pictures of the kids.

Penelope is almost 2! Ethan's first day of school.

What is going on with the house?

Wow! I finally added a couple of pictures!

Okay, I am sure everyone is anxious to hear what is going on with our house. We are too actually. The spring family, who began their home this past spring, are now getting divorced. It is very sad but has left us waiting in the wings. We are supposed to hear this week whether or not we are going to be offered this house. We have already decided that we don't want it. The property looks right at the apartments we live in now, it floods every spring and the property is less than half the size of the one in the pictures. So we are waiting. As soon as we hear we will let you know. Thank you for praying for us, keep it up.

Trying to add a couple of pictures....

Garrett and Kayla's house!

Hello all! I finally got the blog up and running. Just a quick update on our house. We have been clearing the property of trees and bushes that we don't want. We have heard a rumor that our house is scheduled to start on September 9th! We will know more at the end of the month.

For those of you who don't know what is going on, our family was selected to build and buy a Habitat for Humanity home. We both have to put in 250 sweat epuity hours for our down payment. So any of you who want to help we would love to have you. After the house is built we will sign a motgage and make monthly payments at no interest! We are so excited!

Our property size is 91x297 feet and the house will be 3 bedroom, 1 bath. We will be able to add on within a year or so. I have put up a couple of pictures of the property. I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you for all your prayers, keep them coming.

God Bless,

Garrett, Kayla, Ethan, Trinity and Penelope
