we are doing alright here. jonathan is enjoying his job and the people he works with, but he's very busy right now. the girls and i have been helping him do some down routes. the girls are good. liberty has been having a lot of problems sleeping lately so we've had to resort to benedryl at times to help. i'm not a huge fan of that, but the girl needs to sleep (and so do i!). leila is finally starting to get her bottom two teeth now! she's doing great. i've started supplementing some formula in her diet as she has not been getting enough from me (this new baby is stealing everything, i guess!). it was hard for me to do, but it's good for her. we are pretty much all unpacked...mostly our bedroom that needs to be organized. the apartment is spacious, and that's nice.
we miss everyone so much! thanks for keeping up with us! i know when we get internet at home i will have a ton of pictures to post :)

our new apartment is very spacious. we've had a few problems, but the landlords are supposed to get to those this week (i hope!!).
i am really struggling with the whole move...it's been very hard for me to be away from my family and friends now...and for liberty, too. she's asks for everyone every day. and she'll go around the house saying people's names over and over and over as if she's trying not to forget them. it's so hard. please be praying for me (us) right now. and pray that we'll meet some friends soon...i know that will help, at least a little bit.
we do not have phone or internet and probably won't until the end of this month/early next month (you know how tight money is when you first make a big move!). so i'll be a bit absent, but i'll try to hit up the library now and then. know that i am thinking of you all!

Well the move is right upon us now. Only one day left here and I have mixed emotions. I'm so very excited about this new adventure God has in store for us. I'm also sad to be leaving everyone here. Especially for Libbs as she is so attached. I know we are going to be ok. I'm definitely looking forward to having our own place again! Speaking of that, we did find an apartment. And to add to our exciting news...I took a test yesterday and found out we are expecting again! Of course I am elated...but I'm still a little bit nervous b/c of our miscarriage in March. We weren't going to tell anyone about our next pregnancy right away because of that, but I'm just too excited not to! Thank you for your continued prayers.

so it looks like we're moving again! this time to a town in kansas called liberal. it's about 15,000 and fairly isolated (closest city is wichita...about 2.5hrs away!). jonathan was offered a circulation manager position there and has accepted. i'm really excited for him and for us! i really am!! and so very proud of my hubbs! now we just need a place to live...and quickly! they are wanting jonathan to start work on the 16th....so i have a week or less to say goodbye to my friends and family here....oh so hard! i struggle most with the fact that libbs is so attached to everyone now. already when she asks for someone i start crying knowing that very soon i won't be able to tell her "maybe we'll go visit poppo (or whoever she is asking for) tomorrow." oh how it breaks my heart. please pray with me for peace and comfort. and pray with us about a place to live!thank you so so much!

1. What were you doing ten years ago?
