Take a look at my blog header. Go ahead...I'll wait. You notice something different? That's right...I'm no longer writing from the Hay Farm. Our family has moved from the home we built a little over 4 years ago to a much smaller rent house in our local small town. This move was the result of a culmination of the economy, my husband's ever changing job situation, and many bad financial decisions. (We are human, after all.) We were determined to stay in the school district that the kids are currently attending. It's a small district and we like it very much. This was our first year of public school after homeschooling. Our kids had been through enormous changes already. We were fortunate to find a rental that was in our budget and right here in town. It's older, drafty, and quirky, but I can't express adequately how grateful we are to be here.
Although it's been emotional and, at times, overwhelming, it seems that we may make it through. This latest change comes on the cusp of others that frankly, I never thought I'd see. After many years of attending Christian meetings with a local assembly, my husband and I made the decision in January to leave this fellowship in search of something more fitting with how we wanted to raise our family. It was traumatic, especially for our kids. Relationships have been altered, some even severed. But we've not looked back, only forward...pressing on toward the life that we know the Lord has for us.
I'm looking forward to getting back in touch with all of you. And though my blogging whereabouts might have changed, my original goal has not. To share, to encourage, and to be encouraged with you.

Leigh- Life Transitions can be be so hard, but in the end so rewarding! I have missed your blog-so have my kids. We to will be making a huge transition at the end of the school year! A move back to Texas, a bittersweet move as we are happy where we are but know that the journey we are to take is not always what we had planned or are easy.Love from an old friend!
