A beginning

It has been a whirlwind of activity over here. Two days ago we closed on the 15.75 acres of land we will soon be moving to. What a crazy journey it was to get to this place. So many times it seemed that this property was completely out of our hands. We just surrendered the whole thing to God and prepared to move on in our search, when He unexpectedly led us right back there again. The property came back on the market, the details fell into place, and here we are.

Today after church we spent our first day there as a family. We brought along a picnic lunch and the makings to barbecue for dinner, and spent the day cutting away overgrowth and cleaning up trash. The property was a foreclosure and then sat empty for at least a year, so there is a lot of cleaning up to do! 

The weather was just beautiful today, an unexpected treat in February, so we really enjoyed being outside all day. 

We took some videos of the day, including one explaining our "tiny house" plans. Those will be up on our you tube channel soon! We could hardly contain our excitement. After thinking about this day for such a long time it finally came! The work has begun :)
