I love this picture of Kyndra.

Well our back yard is all planted and looks really good. Can't wait for the grass to sprout. Today we packed up our winter clothes. I wanted God to know that I have faith in him. Several people stop and get fliers about the house every week end. All it will take is for one person to decide that they need our house. i keep praying and hoping that that will be soon. We need to start keeping our eyes out for more boxes. I love my life and I will love it in Illinois also. I just can't wait to see our kids and our grand baby. Dear God please hear our prayers and help us to get to Illinois soon.

You can always tell when spring is here because the lawn mowers start up. We have been mowing our field and it looks so cool. I like it because you can see the animals that live there. We have a pheasant that makes the weirdest noise and rabbits and sometimes deer. I will miss that when we move. I won't miss mowing the lawn or field. We are going to plant the back yard today. Tim and crew spread the dirt mountain out all over the yard and now we have to roll it and plant the seed.

I am really excited about our trip to the Oregon Garden. Well not really the garden part but the dinner and room part. They built a brand new resort there and they are have a special deal where you get dinner, a room, and free addmission to the garden for $69.00. I signed up for it along time ago and they canceled our first reservation because they weren't open yet. I had to reschedule when I started my job and now we finally get to go. I will let you know how it goes.

Intel is having party after party for Jerry. Different friends are taking him out to lunch. He went to a LAN party last night which had nothing to do with his leaving but it will be his last one. His upper level manager wants to take us out to dinner if he comes to town before we move. I'm sure that Jerry is feeling alittle bad about leaving his friends. I am sorry for him about that.

Got this picture today from Jessica. Made me miss them all so much. Isn't she just the cutest little thing? Her Nana sure misses her.

Just read an email from our realtor. She thinks she has someone who might be interested in our house. That would truly be a blessing wouldn't it?

Sunday we went to the Easter program at Grand View. It was really nice to see some good friends. The program was really good. We both noticed that Craig White's accent is hardly noticeable anymore. Karissa and Wesley sang the opening song and it was really cute and they did a great job. Ryan played the little boy brought back to life and I have to admit I had tears in my eyes.

Our kids in Children's church did a really great job singing their songs in the main service Sunday. We are so proud of them. Now we owe them a ice cream party.

A funny thing happened to me at the day care on Friday. I was bending over and one of the little girls patted me on the bottom and told me I had a big butt. I calmly told her ,"Yes I do!" What else can you say to a 2 year old when they are only telling the truth? The little blonde girl on the right is the one who made the comment. These are 4 of my kids. I have one more little boy who wasn't there the day I took the pictures.

OK Lets go

OK God. Our house is for sale. Jerry is layed off as of May 1st. Now it's up to God to sell our house and work out the rest. Can't wait to move to Illinois to see my babies.

Jerry was offered a severance package yesterday. There is no way we can turn it down. Intel has been so good to him. We are in awe of the way God is directing everything. His last day of work will officially be May 1st. We all need to pray our house sells fast so we can get out of here.

Finally a sunny weekend.

WOW! We have been so busy. We have been working on the yard and the house. We listed it with a realtor Friday night so we wanted to get as much work done as possible. It's so weird to think that people can come in our house anytime and check it out. Makes it more important to keep it picked up. No dirty coffee cups on the counter or laundry baskets sitting in the living room. Jerry has been working especially hard cleaning the awnings and patio cover and deslimed the deck. It is looking so good it makes you think twice about selling. Just kidding.

We met Mom and George at Red Robin by Ikea today for lunch. I think it is starting to set in that we are moving. I will miss her.

Next Sunday our children's church kids are singing in the main service. They are so cute and doing such a great job. I can't wait.

Well the laundry is beeping at me so I guess I better go.
