Last days in our home.... Saying goodby.

                 Blue sky

            We have been going nonstop so I let them sleep whenever I can. 

          Yay! Another mess to clean up! 

             View from our yard. 

                     Amazing sunset! 

 Last photo of my amazing tree! Going to miss it. 

                     Goodby house!

Just some thoughts...


These last five years have been so different from what I expected. Some of it has been great but most of it has been a challenge. And although I'm so glad we get to move on, I'm a little sad to leave. It's here that our kids had many firsts. First steps, first words, first snow experience, first friends, first days of public school, first days of homeschool.... 

It's here I got a better sense of who I am and who I for sure am not. It's here I learned how to pick good friends, be a better friend, to say "see ya later" to dear friends, to forgive those thought to be your friends and to move on. 

It's here I found out how much I love the State Fair! In fact it is one of the few things I will miss. I loved not only attending it but also working it. 

It's here I learned that I will take a hot day over a cold day anytime! And that it's better to not have air conditioning then to not have a heater. 

I could go on and on but I think you get the point. I'm so glad to be moving on but will miss the great friends I made and will miss the memories that we made here.... But that's why you take lots of photos! So down the road you can still go back to them.

Update #1

It's been a crazy few months and I haven't been able to post what I wanted too. So I thought I would provide an update to let you all know I'm still here!
 Homeschooling has been...going.... 
As all homeschool families we have ups and downs and I know it will get easier (I hope...). We have a lot of distractions right now that I know are the problem. We keep at it and will be taking a break soon. 

 We have great news! After being at this base for over 5 years, the Air Force will finally let us move!!!  Over the next few months that is going to be our biggest challenge and blessing. We can't wait for this new adventure and all the opportunities that will come with it.

Preparing for this move and homeschooling have kept me busy and unable to post lately but I have lots of posts coming soon! I plan to do a few more updates but for now this will have to do. Thank you all for sticking around and reading my blog! There will be at least two giveaways coming up in the summer so don't go anywhere! ;) 

(I will miss the sky here, the clouds are always amazing)
