Married in ’97 – Here’s a list of where we’ve lived since we tied the knot:

Center St. in Beaverton, Foster Ln. in Beaverton, Columbia Dr. in Tualatin, 124th St. in Beaverton, Brookhurst St. in Medford, Devonwood Ct. in Eagle Point,  (Now to Texas!) Kothman Dr. in Hutto, Orgain in Hutto, and now…for #9…_________in Hutto!

Just given our notice that we have till the end of the mo. to move (b/c the owners want to sell it vacant), I’m finding myself on a house-hunt while my boys are in OR with family. I’m only ok with moving again b/c it’s out of our hands, but it doesn’t make any less frustrating. Although I thrive when I stay in one place as long as possible, I have to admit, I’m kinda itchin’ to get out of this lil 1200 sq. ft. all tile/stone floor soundwave amplifying place.  But for Braylon‘s stability’s sake (& proximity to friends), we will not be moving anywhere within our town (God willing) that would force him to attend his 3rd different school in 3 yrs. The least amount of change/adjusting is what we’re goin’ for…so Lord help us! Help us find the perfect home & neighborhood, for the perfect amount of time.


a new song: storm’s a-brewin’

this one’s for kids (or grown-ups), kinda big-band style. just click here, but come on back when you’re done! storm\’s a-brewin\’

braylon (5) helped me write it earlier this week just after we looked out our kitchen window & noticed the sky was changing fast. it does that a lot ’round these here parts!

oh – a few side notes: he wanted to say that after the line “in the mean time, i’ve got my umbrella” he voted for: “in the mean time, i’m holdin’ on to my fella”. cute, but it sounded a bit co-dependant to me. : ) i ended up with ‘i’m not alone’ cuz it could mean i have my family w/me, or better yet, i’ll always have God by my side. (and…vs.3 i have to give credit to pastor judah smith for inspiration. heard a sermon about change 6 mo. ago & it stuck).
