April Catch Up

Where has this month gone? Thought I'd do a quick catch up post as we approach May.

Earlier this month Clarke went to the daddy breakfast at Chloe's school. Her teacher sent me this adorable picture.

The house we are buying in 2 weeks (eekk!) got a brand new roof, super exciting I know, but really it's a huge answered prayer. 

I've been bringing the kids over to our new neighborhood to walk around the lake or play on the playground since it's been so nice out. I can't wait to add the pool to the mix!

Saturday we decided to go to the Richmond zoo since it's one of the last free Saturdays we have before we close on the house. Chloe loved seeing all the animals, of course she said the chickens were her favorite. 
The merry go round was also a favorite!

Sunday we went to a friend's birthday party, with horse rides. I was so proud of Chloe wanting to get on the big horse and ride. 

Then today Chloe had her first gymnastics class!!
I was totally that mom standing there taking a ton of pictures, but it made me so happy to see her doing gymnastics! She was adorable, and I loved watching her try new things. She said she wanted to go back, and that she liked it!

2 weeks till we close on the house!!

7 and counting...

Happy Anniversary Clarke!
We went out to dinner Saturday night to celebrate. We kept it pretty low key this year, with an infant and a move coming up. But it was nice to reflect on all we've been through over these past seven years. 

Here's to many more!!

About a year ago we started to think about the possibility of moving back home. Clarke started applying for jobs and before we knew it he had accepted a position at a new company, our house was on the market and we were moving into my mom's house temporarily. At least we thought it would be temporarily. Here we are almost ten months later. Our house finally sold, we welcomed baby Luke into our family and we have finally found a new home!!!
This isn't the best picture, but we are beyond excited to finally have our own home again! We are in love with the neighborhood. We can walk to the playground, pool, clubhouse, and walking trails.  It's so convient to everything, we can't wait to move in.

God has been faithful to get us here. It has not been easy, in fact it's been a hard transition. I was waiting to post anything until we got through inspection. The sellers agreed to fix everything, including a brand new roof. It's another answered prayer. 

May 12 can't come soon enough!!
