saying goodbyes and heading south

But first, here is a picture of big David with some soldiers. Please keep soldiers and families in your prayers. Especially families reintegrating. It can be an wonderful yet really tough time for families.
Hanging out at favorite pool at Va beach - last play date with cousin Payton

Solomon had a long day.....the first of many!!
Pops had to come down one more time - he helped fist day of the movers
the big truck...showed up 3/4 full! needless to say, they didn't get it all in there...had to bring another truck and two delivery dates. fun stuff!
Ms. Vick flew in from LA to help clean house and drive David's truck down! She was a real trooper and life saver!!

Pwoc ladies - a dear group of women of faith - they prayed us out and gave us goodies as we left the base...

The Rent's came down for Labor Day weekend

The kids and I (and broken big toe!) River walk, Savannah
Thanks mom and dad for our family piano!

maybe on or all will grow up playing!!
some new friends playing at the mall :) (a neighbor friend and I went to take kids to indoor was closed so we had to improvise...this is their balloon dancing. Solomon was really into it you can tell)
woo hoo for fun times with friends!!!
Haven't posted anything in a while and then just posted 3 long ones!! Sorry about that family:)
Anyway, we are slowly but surely getting settled in Savannah. We have a wonderful church and neighborhood. We still miss Va beach - the beach, family, and friends, - the kids still talk about it too. But we are getting use to our new home and know God has a plan and purpose for us here. We are also excited to be in the place where David will be coming home to. The kids look at the helicopters military planes and ask, "Is daddy on that one??!!" I keep telling them - after Isabella's birthday party, then we will start looking for daddy's plane.
Soon, but still not soon enough, the kids and I will be running into his arms!! Until then, we keep focus and take it all one moment at a time!
God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble!
He carries us through!
God bless you and yours!
