big news


So I'm taking a break from mad cleaning to update everyone on our big news...we are moving back to TN! Michael got a great job offer in Athens. Everything is happening really fast- he should be moving there next week while we wait for school to end so we can join him in June. Hopefully, this will give us some time to sell the house and find a new one, so we can be a bit settled before our baby comes. It was a little shocking at first, but every day we get more excited! I think it will be great to have help once Hallie is here, and we have really missed our family and friends in TN. Soo, here's to another adventure and coming home!

Hallie and Henry


One of the best things about this pregnancy is that my BF, Julie, and got to be pregnant for part of the time together! She had her son, Henry, on April 25th so our babies will have to wait a little while to meet. Congrats Julie!!

prayer for our children

A Mother's Prayer (hannah's Song) lyrics
My sweet baby on loan from above
no better treasure could I more love
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say:

I stare in wonder at your tiny frame
Just to think God knows you by name
He knows every hair on your head
He knows your thoughts before they are said.

May God grant you peace
in the midst of a storm
May God give you strength even
when you’re forlorn
May you answer the door when
Jesus comes knocking
May wisdom guide when
your mouth is talkin’
May discretion protect you and keep you pure
May you never stumble
or fall for a lure
May your heart remain humble
to the very end
May uprightness and truth
be what you defend
May the world not ensnare
or change who you are
May the light that's within you
shine like the stars
May angels surround you
body, spirit, mind
May favor and peace be yours to find
May rejection and pain
never reach you
May your spirit grow bold
for what you’re called to

May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways
May He bless your future with
friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

As you rest in God’s care I will rest too
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you
