So some interesting news we are moving to North Carolina!! Shocking for us for sure. It all began last Sunday my brother was taking a shower and God spoke to him....what that sounds kooky? Well it's the truth. He felt that God was telling him that the family needed to move to North Carolina...he also told my brother to read John chapters 4 and 5. We went to church without him saying a word about NC but telling us about the chapters he read. The sermon that morning was on John chapter 4 and 5....weird we all know. Josh has never talked about God telling him things before this is all after he went to a christian camp for a week and it was there that God began the work in him and began telling him what He wanted with Josh's life. So after church Josh announced to my family that they were to move to NC. It was the first state that my family heard and were open too. For the past couple of weeks they were talking about moving but nothing at all appealed to them and they didn't act on anything. My mom said 'really North Carolina? Hmm' We began researching it and looking at the houses, jobs, areas, crime, and weather. It all looked so appealing beside what did they have to lose? The next day my mom asked my husband what we planned on doing since we live with them. I said I don't know we'll figure something out. It was on Tuesday that my mom asked if we were going to come with them or not and my husband said yes. We hadn't really talked about it together at all. I had thought for sure he would say no as a California born and raised never really left the state except to WA and Ne so yeah I was surprised. The next few days were me asking him over and over if he was sure and he said yes there was nothing to hold him back and maybe there we could finally improve on our lives. So my mom told my dad and he told his boss and the date was set for Dec 3rd to later be moved down to Nov 4. On Thursday we went and cleaned out our storage it took us all day we didn't get home until after midnight but we were done and down to about 1/3 the stuff we had before we began. The next day we began packing our house....why you ask? Because someone was already interested in coming to look at it and wanted to be here on Monday....fast I know. So within those few days we had my families house packed. All thats left here is the basics of everyday life and enough homeschooling stuff for the two boys for the next two months....the problem is now we don't really know what to do with ourselves....the house stays pretty clean....hmmmm. Yes so now we have two months and not much to do lol. Anyways a man came and looked at our house and loved it....only problem was he was one man and there is a lot of house here. He couldn't believe that 12 people live here even though the realtor kept telling him it was the truth. He was going to ask his brother to come live with him here if he got the house and we are still waiting to find out what is going to happen with that. Meanwhile we are waiting for more potential buyers and trying to find homes for our animals (anyone near us need to cute outdoor cats? Or a momma goat? Or a purebred male Shitzu? How about to horses? One is older and needs his teeth floated the other is a bout 12) Anyways....I am so excited and although I was nervous as a little dog at first I am now calm and excited....can we move already?
