A house

Hello everyone! Sorry for the long absence, but we don't have WiFi where we are staying right now, so we have to rely on Starbucks when we are out and about and phone data while we're here in the trailer, so blogging has been a bit tricky. I just wanted to let people know who don't yet that we found a house!! We are so blessed! We were able to sign the lease yesterday, today we'll clean it up a bit, tomorow the truck will come and Friday movers will come to help dad get all of our stuff in the house! We are so blessed in many ways. This was actually the only house we were able to see inside, and one of the few that had room for our travel trailer to be stored on the property. It has a giant basement that is livably finished (not super finished but still great for us!), a huge backyard for Seth, and best of all it's just minutes away from dad's work, which, after six years of an hour commute twice a day that is such an amazing blessing!

Safe and sound on the east coast!

Well, we arrived in MD safe and sound around 1 am on Saturday morning. After my last blog post we had some tire troubles which delayed us for a couple hours, but overall we made it without too much trouble, and are now temporarily settled in Md with our trailer. We are loving the area and it is really interesting finding our way around a new area. It is rather mind boggling how close states are here. Right now I am sitting in a Starbucks in Delaware, just a few minutes drive from the Maryland border, and if we kept drive for just a bit we could either be in New Jersey or Pennsylvania. Saturday we spent settling in, Sunday we visited a lovely church, and Yesterday was my 21st birthday, we visited the Delaware river which flows into the Delaware bay, we enjoyed reading about the history of pea patch island which was directly across from where we were, watching the seagulls, cormorants flying over and I think I even spotted a puffin in flight. Today we are cleaning, catching up on laundry, dad is getting things set up to start working at his new job, and hopefully we can go house hunting later this evening!
I was hoping to add some pictures today, but my phone (which has most of the pictures) is being used as a gps right now so, we have to delay pictures again, but soon there will be pictures I promise!

On the last leg of the journey

After a lovely visit with Family in Oklahoma and Texas, we hit the road in earnest the day before yesterday. We drove through Texas and Arkansas the first day, and ended the night in Memphis Tennessee. We drove through Tennessee all day yesterday and camped out on the border on Tennessee and Virginia. If things go according to plan, we should make it to Maryland tonight, which is our final destination (We'll be staying there until we can find a house in Delaware)
Thank you all for your prayers during this time, we really appreciate them! I have been waiting to blog til I. would post pictures, but blogger doesn't like my phone and won't let me upload, so when we are a little  more settled, I will try to post just a picture post.

On our way

Well, the journey begins.
We our officially on our way. We'll spend some time with our family down south before heading north and east. We have a lot of traveling ahead of us, so we would really appreciate prayers for safety!
