I can't even remember what I blogged about last time, it's been that crazy busy here!
We have moved all our stuff out of our St Francis home up to our new home in Ely...thanks to a lot of help from Jack and THANK YOU!
We are priming and vingerizing the cupboards right now and will be painting them white...we are looking for a new reliable vehicle...we are thinking about a suburban.
Alli's doing well, being very independent...however she is scared of our wooden stairs and sreams "momma...mommma" everytime she wants me to come and get her. Sydney is busy with VBS at the Tab and they are having a play next week we will be attending. Carter is growing quickly too, he loves playing with Sydney and putting puzzles together and driving his trucks...the kids really love swimming and fishing. Sydney learned how to swim this weekend with the help of our good friend Bill.
Jack and Mark went out fishing in Mark's new boat this past weekend and caught 6 fish, northern, walleye, bass...we will be having a fish fry this weekend, I am thinking.
Mark and I are going to be leaving for an overnight BWCA trip. We are heading to Lake Isabella searching for a moose...I really want to see a bear, but Mark wants to see a Moose, who knows maybe we will see both by Saturday afternoon, so we can come back to stay in a hotel (that's my type of camping) Mark likes to rough it... I am starting to teach Sunday school at Ely Baptist this fall, so that will be fun.
Just Busy, Busy, Busy...OH! A book suggestion to all parents! "Power of Praying Parent"!!!!! AWESOME!
Have a good week...and please, come visit!

The Big Move!

Well...the Big Move happened this weekend! We rolled into town around 10:30 last night and got up early to get our Uhaul today. THANK YOU to Brennen Palm, Jenny/Josh Kidd, Jack/Nancy for helping us load up! What a chore! We are all walking zombies.
We are planned to get up and head to Ely tomorrow morning to unload.
We closed on our new house in Ely on Friday morning, we have a new get out your address books...824 East Chapman Street...Ely, MN 55731!
Mark's conversion was better than expected. Thank you for your prayers. He worked a total of 28 hours of overtime since last Thursday and they are all learning and practicing, practice can only make perfect.
Big Happy Birthday Shout out to Brandon Black and Kirk brother in laws, they both have birthday's in August...and many more!
Well, before Alli pulls the plug out again, Good Bye!

Conversion to 21st Century has begun...

Well, Mark didn't make it home until about 11:30 last night! Working on getting all their computers and files and posts ready for the big weekend conversion...Pray that all goes well and that he can be a testimony to his coworkers who aren't saved. I am baking and cooking and keeping food over there so they stay full and content, it's the only thing I can do to help, if it really helps at all.
Melanie got up here safe and sound last fun!!! We are heading to Fall Lake Beach/Park today and than take her to the Trazona trail.
Funny story...Wednesday night, Mark went up to the BWCA to go fishing and I had the kids for the evening and we invited Sydney's friends who are twins over to play...while I was bringing them home I didn't realize I left the keys in the passenger side door, and basically the next morning we couldn't find Mark's keys...and he finally found them hanging on the door!!! Oops! Good thing we live in Ely and are driving a 1993 Chevrolet luminia...or else the end result might not be the same.

About Me

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!
