A Heart Toward Home

Home for us now...

is a camper! In May we made the decision to borrow Bryan's parents camper and live in it to save some money while building the house. We also thought it would be good for us to be close to the house during the building process.

Camper life has been an adventure. I know this will make me appreciate our new home much more.

The kids and I have been to visit family in AL some during this time. Which has been a great time for me to do some cooking to take back with us. Although this is a challenging time in our lives, God is very good to us. 

We have learned to use the crock pot, Fry Daddy, and electric skillet for a lot of things. Our neighbors have been so good to let us come over to wash clothes and take baths. It has given us an opportunity to get to know them better and build a friendship there. We have not hooked up the gas to the camper so the only hot water we have is the water from the hose pipe at the end of the day. The first one to take a shower gets the warm water. Bryan doesn't mind a cold shower, he is tough. I am a wimp because I just can't make myself do it. I did take my first shower in the camper last week, we boiled water in the fry daddy then added enough cold to make it warm and Bryan brought it to me in "cool whip" tubs until I was through with my shower. He is such a good husband! :) (Was that TMI?)

I pray that as the years go by we will look back on this time and remember all that God has done. That we will be making lots of memories and enjoying time as a family.

I think we were happiest when we had to improvise. You are making memories you will never forget. Remember when we had to....Praying for a house that gets done before the cold weather!
