Miss Molly Marie joined our crew on July 8th
They no longer live across the street from us.
so, we HAD to move, right?
|This is our new house|
So we moved out of our old neighborhood.
Leaving friends and a home we lived in for longer
than we have lived anywhere.
We may not live across the street
but instead of 30 minutes it takes 8
That is good because we have our new little sweetie
to take care of while her parents work.
We also doubled our square footage.
Why you ask?
Because we had a family of four move in with us.
With a fourth deployment looming over their heads
Shawn and Jennifer made the hard choice to leave the Army life.
He was able to get a job on post with the same people he worked
with when they were stationed here but the pay and benefits are less.
He'll be going back to school with his Military benefits.
Sad that this young family has given so much to this country
but have to start from scratch.
So for now they live with us.
Tom and I have everything we need on the main floor
The Bransons have the whole second floor with
3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a sitting area.
We also have a huge finished basement when all the grands are here.
Jennifer has been subbing in the kids school.
The same school that Thomas teaches in and the redheads attend.
So I flew out to Texas and drove back with Jen and the kids
while Shawn processed out
They are now making their home in our old house.
Charlie is tickled with his 'man cave'
Michele is tickled to be only three minutes from her mom
to tell me which were not born into our family.
We will be here when and if they call again.
