Photo Challenge and Follow Me

Spring is my favorite season. I love the green that starts to show after the ugly brown of the winter. I love the warmer temperatures, thunderstorms, and budding trees. I love all the new baby animals. I don't really like the mud, but it can't all be perfect. I'm ready for the weather to get its act together and actually start acting like spring. It snowed yesterday, which isn't a huge surprise, but I'm ready for some warmer temps and a nice thunderstorm!
The month of April, probably the best month (and not just because it contains my birthday) is the perfect month for a photo challenge. So that's just what I'll be doing.. you? I'll be linking up with my sister and Barb. If you want to join us, don't forget to get started on April 1st! I assigned a word for each day and you can interpret it however you like.

On another note, I wanted to let you all know I have Instagram now! It is the only reason I would ever want a smart phone, but luckily I figured out a way to use it on my Kindle. If you want to follow along go HERE, do you have Instagram? (Probably. I'm the second to last person to get it, my husband is the only one left I think).


You can also follow along with me on..

Twitter HERE. (but don't expect much, my tweeting comes and goes).

One Last Time

Sounding like a broken record... We moved! Again! Tired of hearing that? Not as tired as I am of packing up boxes, I can assure you that.
This past year.. more like the last 9 months, we were living in south-central Iowa while Tyler lived out his dream of being a college basketball coach. He enjoyed the job a lot. He was also gone a lot, very busy, and working overtime on part time pay. It was really hard, especially without any family close by.
Long story short (I originally typed out the long story, but it was really boring), we are buying my parents' acreage, the place I grew up, and my parents are building a new house about seven miles away.

This is our last move, for many years at least. We are really excited to be staying in one place and finding permanent places for all our stuff around the house. The house is large enough for our family, the acreage is perfect for meeting our immediate goals, and the location is great as we are near a whole lot of my extended family.

My parents are staying with us until the ground thaws and they can start working on the new place while living in their RV (kinda chilly at night still for that), so we aren't completely unpacked and settled, but we have plenty of time for that. Tyler will be helping them with the build, subbing, and hopefully coaching high school basketball.
