Moving :)

Sorry for the lack of posting lately.  But I have just got regular internet back after our BIG move.

We have just finished packing up everything and moving across the country back home.  We have been blessed to be able to stay in a friends house for 3 months while they are overseas on mission work.  We have been house hunting and found a house the first weekend we were back.  We are waiting on final approval from the bank but it looks like by the end of September Godwilling we will finally have our own house after 8 long years!!

We did not expect to be away from home so long.  It was supposed to be a 6 month stint with us all together as a family, while the baby grew and Hubby finished the job he had to do.  It turned out to be 2 1/2 years!!  We met lots and lots of friends who we will miss, were part of the fantastic Noah’s Ark Playgroup for kids with special needs, and managed to get ourselves close to debt free.  All in all our time in Kalgoorlie brought many blessings.

Unfortunately Hubby’s job has not finished and at this stage he had not found work else where so we will be going back to a FIFO (Fly in Fly out) role.  So this will bring big adjustments to our family.  The older kids can remember those days but the youngest 2 cant. 

So this last week has been spend unpacking boxes, setting up our workboxes and getting ourselves ready for school again.  Meanwhile the kids are enjoying exploring the new backyard, finding caterpillars and go-carting down the driveway!  After one ripped skirt and one crash the rules are Jeans, shoes and helmets!!  Little Man is enjoying meeting his cousins and being introduced to a whole new BOY world!!

We also joined our local library and bought home a whole pile of books – now life is starting to feel more like normal.
