Here we are six years ago!
So much has changed for us since that day. Back then we thought we were going to live in Kirksville for a LONG time, buy a house there and raise our kids. We were about to embark on our first year teaching and just moved into a cute lil' duplex. Little did we know how much would change in 6 short years.
Since we decided to do something about all those extra pounds we were carrying around. We joined weight watchers and really improved our health! In the summer of 2006 we packed up and moved to St. Louis in order to be closer to our families. We started new jobs at the same school district. Then we quickly got pregnant right after the start of that school year and welcomed Bethany the next summer. Two years later...we welcomed another bouncing baby Milles in the world.
Often at dinner, we are at awe over the blessings that have come upon us. We certainly don't take anything for granted and often thank God for all we have. We were just talking today how we can't imagine live with out our babies. They are enriched our lives so much it is astounding!
It is amazing how much can change in 6 years. And I don't know what the next 6 years has in store for us (not to mention the next 60 years)...but I am glad that I will have my best friend next to me, hand-in-hand as life continues to unfold in front of us.
