rainy day thoughts

*It's overcast today, sort of rainy.
*Sammy is having fun playing by himself and being creative.... which warms my heart, because I just wrote an article and submitted it to our local mag... it's about Raising Creative Children. So I should practice what I preach :).
*My butt hurts from the new seats on the bikes in the spin class room. Youch.
*I'm eager to hear when the buyers of our house want to close the deal... should be sometime in March. Very hard to move, but it will be a sweet time.
*Zach and I are excited about a road trip we plan to take with the kids before he starts school. Details TBA.
*We have good friends. Good, amazing, deep-thinking, caring friends. From so many walks of life and so many areas of our life. I really don't know what we'd do without them. Thanks friends!
*We are moving to the country. Say it with me with the southern accent... country. In a turn of events that could only be orchestrated by God, or by my friend Taryn (whomever thought of the idea first), we are moving to a beautiful patch of land with a beautiful little house with amazing windows. I can't wait to show you pictures. It will be a lovely place to raise our kids for these Dental School years. Zach will have more of a commute to get to school, but the trade-off is worth it. A sweet little community of people who will support us... we are beyond excited. It's a more affordable, comfortable place for us to live, with clean air and space to roam. My kids will love it!
*Soon I will drive there and look at the schools for our kids... getting excited about the prospects there :). Country livin' will be a fun experience for all of us!


  1. Ooooohhh. Are you going to grow peaches???


    Happy, and a little jealous.

  2. Oh will love living in the country! Although we aren't officially "country," it sure feels like it surrounded by our neighbors' land! My kids go help with the chickens and sometimes bring home two big cartons of fresh eggs! Can't beat that!
