One of the things I have enjoyed greatly is the home that the church has provided for us. It has been wonderful being able to have a place to call ours. I have also enjoyed having the privacy for taking care of the girls. I never thought I would enjoy living in the country (Northland doesn't count). I have loved being out here away from the busy city. I have even enjoyed drinking milk straight from the cow -- something I said I would never do since we used to get farm fresh milk when I was a little girl. Amazingly, Lydia has even been able to drink the milk. She can't even drink store milk without throwing up. What a blessing that the Lord has allowed her to be able to digest the milk! We only have one can of formula left, and formula up here costs about $30 a can. I am excitedly amazed at how the Lord has been meeting our needs since we have arrived here.
Here is a picture of our new home. It is a three bedroom farmhouse. The people at the church have graciously supplied us with furniture, dishes, cookwear, and a host of other things for us to use including a variety of toys for the girls. We are blessed to be able to work with such a wonderful group of people here.
Having the huge front yard has been such a blessing since I can send Kara outside without having to be right there with her. This has been especially wonderful when I am fixing dinner (usually Kara's grumpy time).
