What We Have Been Up To

It's been a busy time ever since we moved here. We are getting more settled in but I still feel very behind in things, like blogging:) We have had 2 youth group meetings at our house now which we love and are having a great time getting to know the kids. I have been to the lake 4 times now and we love having such a beautiful lake so close by. Andrew has joined the church softball team and I am sure he will hit me a home run some time soon. Andrew also got to preach in church for the first time last Sunday and was excited to be given that opportunity. My mom was up here for a few days and we took on the big project of painting our kitchen table. We had a harder time with it than we thought but we will now have great memories as we can laugh about all the drama that one table could bring. Tomorrow we head off for our church's family camp up in Oregon. We are excited to go try to be campers and to get to know our church family better.
Here are some pictures from the lake for you all to see why you need to come visit us!

Our New Home

Here are a few pictures of our new home. We have worked hard to get everything unpacked but there are still a few things we are working on. At first it was just overwhelming with everything that needed to be done. Andrew thought it would be a good idea to do before and after pictures.
When we arrived here late Sunday night we walked in and found our counters covered with food and supplies to get us going in our new home from our church family. Thank you everyone who contributed to that! It was such a blessing to walk in and know we had all the essentials.
Here's the view from our backyard. It's so crazy we have a backyard.

Moving Day

I am finally back at it trying to catch up with blogging. Moving just kind of sets you back for a while. Here are pictures of our moving day. We will always be fond of our first apartment and the lovely green color of the Californian Apartments. Thanks everyone who helped us move. You were all a huge help!
