Here is What I Want You to Know

I have many, many post ideas swirl through my head daily, but rarely put them down on the computer screen.  So here is what I want you to know...

-This is our last week in Wisconsin, yep, one week from today we will be in Ohio.
-When I say I am excited to move, or wear all my Ohio State shirts, it's not because I can't wait to get outta here, it's because I am flippin' excited to plant a new church.
-My last day of work was July 31 and since then I have been living up every single day of being home with my girls.  We have made so many memories in the last couple weeks, my heart is bursting at the seams.
-I now have a 6 year old, yep a 6 year old.  {Separate post about that coming tomorrow!}
-We are gearing up for our homeschool season to start.  I feel like that could be a blog series in its self.  I have learned so much about homeschooling {the good, the bad, and the ugliness of it}, but I am excited to start and Molly is chomping at the bit to learn. 
-I took the girls back to Ohio last week for a visit and to drop a load of stuff off before we move.  We had a great time and I said good bye to my childhood home.  {Another post coming this week!}
-I love seeing all the back to school photos my friends are posting, it makes me happy and sad.  We are still doing back to school pics for Molly, but we aren't starting school for another 2 weeks.
-Not a whole lot has been happening on the church planting front.  A lot of decisions won't be made until we move to Ohio.  We feel like we can not be truly connected and make wise choices while living in WI.  Plus, if we knew it all now, life would be a little boring in a couple of months. {This is what I am telling myself to keep from freaking out!} 
-Lastly, I want to thank you all for all the kind words, support, and prayers over the last couple of months.  There are many, many times I have no words to pray, so I just rest in knowing someone else has me covered right now.  Leaving one ministry for another is bittersweet, but I know we are doing exactly what God is calling us to do, so it makes it a little easier.

I can't wait to hear how things go. I can relate to so much of your story. What part of Ohio are you moving to? Maybe I'll be in your area sometime, or vice versa. Keep us posted on the homeschooling!
