We are now living in Ely, MN! It's Mark and I and the kids. Heidi is now living with family friends. Gary and Kathi King. She was able to go back to her friends and school, which she missed. She is adjusting well...and she had her 15th birthday last week...so HAPPY BIRTHDAY again, Heidi!
Well...we came up here last Sunday night...and our new chapter has started. It is so nice up here. I hope you all can come up and visit sometime.
We live in a 1 bedroom apartment, but it is huge! It's 1200 square feet, and everything is separated, so it's more like an upstairs "duplex". We have a flower shop downstairs...so I got to keep the kids quiet during the day.
I have been busy unpacking, organizing...and oh yes...scrubbing floors...I have probably spent about 5 hours doing that so far this past week...and I am not done yet.
I have been feeling sick lately, so I finally got checked out. They diagnosed me with Whopping cough! Crazy! I was throwing up everytime I would cough...and I probably threw up 100+ times...in a 5 hour period...it was getting a little annoying! (especially in our close quarters)
I don't have the internet at home. So I am going to be coming to the library to check email and update my blog.
I can't upload pictures right now...but when I can, I will post some Ely Sites.
Today we are going to explore trails and the town/shops of Ely! It will be nice.
It's so nice being with Mark. The kids and I have really missed him! We get to see him off to work, a quick 10 minute break in the morning and than...and hour for lunch...and he is home 5ish! So, it's something to look forward too...
We started "story time" at the library on Fridays, they really have a nice library and kids program up here.
I am going to search for the mops group this week...and we are trying out a church tomorrow...
Alli started pulling herself up on things and is now using her "nnanna, mmamma" sounds! How exiting!!!
Carter is looking forward to his 2nd birthday next weekend. We will be heading back to the "Big Cities" for that...
Hope all is well with everyone.
Please pray our house sells quickly. God is in control...and I can only humbly come to him with my requests.
Keep me posted on YOU!
- I am a wife and mother of three beautful children. I like to keep busy up here in Ely, since there isn't much to do. Sydney is in preschool, and I take the kids to ECFE every week. I am starting a ladies bible study 2 times a month and am also leading another bible study, twice a month. We love hiking, boating, fishing and going on dates together...we love our new life up here in Ely!
