Exciting and Blessed Days

These days - oh, these days - are so full of change. Number 3, the baby of the family, is in college. In college! He joined his sis at DBU. The firstborn came back home after college and is in grad school. And, he's ENGAGED! He is engaged to the most lovely, darling girl. Oh, we love her so already and are so excited that Josh is bringing her into our family.
These days were supposed to be our "empty nest" days. We're glad to have Josh at home this year since when he leaves next time it will be for good. Johnny and I started thinking about being just the 2 of us in this house, though. We hate to leave this house because so much good life has been lived here. Our kids practically grew up here. Yet, so much is being built up around us and we simply don't need all the space we have in this house anymore. We started looking for some property just a bit toward the country a few months ago. And, we found this little piece of paradise and, as of today, it belongs to us! It's 2.83 acres and we plan to build a house on it as soon as we can.
You know you're in the country when you go walking around on your land and the neighbors come out to meet you! We're going to be country folks and we couldn't be more excited!

So, we're looking forward to a summer wedding and building a house... yep, it's going to be a blast!
