So, where to begin?

I haven't blogged in more than 2 years, so it is hard to even figure out where to start.  Here's the run down...We moved back to Edmond, OK in August of 2011.  I got a teaching job for Edmond Public Schools.  I taught 2nd grade last year and I am teaching 1st grade this year.

Luke is going back to school this January to finish his Bible degree.  He is getting a full ride, which is AMAZING! 

Tyson is in 2nd grade this year and Keely is in Pre-K.  They are both doing well in school; Keely just wishes that she could be there full time.  

The big news...we bought a house on December 14th!  We got it for 50% off through a program called the Good Neighbor Next Door.  Such a blessing!  So over Christmas Break, we have been putting in countless hours scraping wall paper, scraping popcorn ceilings, taking out a wall, tearing out carpet, and breaking out tile.  We are not as far along as we had hoped, but we are having fun making it our own.  We will be moving in by the end of January!

Here are some pre-renovation pictures.
