You know how when you put something off for a while and get behind and you don't want to start because it will be more work than usual? That's exactly how I feel about my blog right now. I didn't have internet for a while after we arrived and then when we got it I just couldn't bring myself to work on my blog. Well here we go!

We finally got to Canton on Monday Oct 12th. On our way into town we stopped at the gas station close to The Brannan's business and Cassie rushed up to give us hugs. It was so wonderful to put my arms around her and give her a giant hug. Then we went to Josh and Jessica's. Wow! We sure do love all of our kids. Kyndra is the spitting image of Jessica at her age. Not so much in looks but the way she acts.

The next day Jessica had a hair party. Her friend that is a stylist came over and 5 of us got hair cuts and colors. It was so fun and my hair looked great.

The next big event was the Ladies Spectacular at First Baptist. We drove to Karen's house and stayed there. We loved every minute of the Spectacular. It was the best one I ever went to.

Since then our house has sold (yahoo!!!) Jerry was sick for a couple of weeks but is now back to normal. We have been on 2 teen activities and joined the church and the choir. We bought the Wii we promised ourselves and have already spent many evenings playing Wii with our kids.

They have a really nice YMCA here with a pool, hot tub, sauna, climbing wall, cardio room, weight room, 2 gyms, tumbling room and best of all day care. Jessica and I have joined and we have gone together about 4 times so far. Josh and Jess have gone a couple of evenings together. It feels really good to work out and do something positive.

We are currently looking for houses. We want to buy something small and fix it up. I know that God will give us just the right house at just the right time. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us.

I am going to put some pics in from the Apple Orchard activity we went on with the teens. All of the pics are of Kyndra. It was a beautiful chilly day when we went.

Today it is gorgeous. It's supposed to get to 69 degrees and we are going to try to go on a picnic this afternoon.

Life is good and we are loving every minute of it.
