Settling - after many months of moving around

Home school in the sun room

We have now been back in South Carolina for two weeks and we are really enjoying being in one place for a while! The boys seem to appreciate it too. They love having a routine. So we're back to our home school routine every morning and including lots of fun summer activities in the afternoons.

Road Trip Finished: May 7, 2014

Packed in our van in Greenville Texas before starting our final leg of the journey back to SC

As you all know our family took an epic road trip this spring that lasted 67 days, took us through 21 states and covered 11,000 miles! It's very hard to find words to describe what the last two months have been like: wonderful times of reconnecting with friends, being with family, sharing in churches, raising prayer for South Sudan, and seeing so many incredible, historic sites.  We also want to give glory to God for His protection and provision. Not once did we have a "scare" on the road or car trouble of any kind. All along the way God has provided for our every needs, even blessing us with a "peaceful haven", a 2 bedroom condo in Columbia, SC to call home until our renters' lease is up at the end of June and we can move into our very own home. We have been living in transition since we left South Sudan in early December so that is a very long time not to be settled. Thank you Lord for giving us a little bit of normal for now.

Thank you to all of you who have prayed for us on this journey. For those of you we haven't seen yet, don't worry, our adventures in Odyssey (our van) are not over yet! :)
