Pics Galore (Tyson update at bottom)

Last week we had a wonderful time with our Baker family (my sis and her fam) being here to visit. We started the week with Delaney in town from Sunday night through Weds morning without her mommy and daddy. Delaney and Sophie had so much fun playing together. Then Katie, Troy and Nolan came on Wednesday afternoon and spent the rest of the week with us.

Here are the two girls playing:

Proud Uncle Jeremy with his nieces and nephew:

Sophie and Nolan; Ben with the girls:

Another cute "Princess Sophie" picture; Grandma with her girls:

Katie reading to the girls:

At the zoo! Delaney and Sophie on a saddle together; the whole group minus Katie (don't miss cute little Nolan at the bottom left snoozin' in his stroller!):

Grandad with the girls in the double stroller; Katie's cute fam (again, don't miss snoozy Nolan!):

I started my PRN job this week; I'm going to pick up a little bit of Home Health speech therapy here and there to make us some extra money. It went well this week although I was just shadowing another speechie to "learn the ropes." Going into people's homes isn't as scary as I thought it would be.

The most exciting news is we are in the process of signing a contract on a house! We made an offer on Tuesday night, and after some back and forth negotiating we have come to an agreement. We won't actually have their signatures until Monday due to the holiday, but they've agreed and we're SO thankful to God. It's an older house, built in 1957, which I never thought we would do, but God is so good to us and is helping us pay off some of our school loans early by having a slightly smaller mortgage payment than expected! We're ecstatic to finally be back on our own again (not that my parents haven't been FANTASTIC to us while we've been here).

I probably don't say this enough, but God is SO GOOD!! He is always faithful to us, always teaching us new things and disciplining us to mold us more into his likeness. It is fabulous and humbling to be called a child of God!!!

Looks like you're having fun with lots of family time. Congrats on the house. We hope all goes well with it. Don't worry our house was built in 1971--we understand about older homes.
