one last time

So this will be my last post from St. Louis! How sad is that? Well, I'll post from St. Louis again... in a year! Our house is nearly packed up. We have A LOT of stuff...but we've been pretty good about getting rid of a lot of stuff and throwing useless stuff away. I have to post this now cuz we're about to pack up the computer. I hoped to post pictures of our new house on here but now they are packed away so you'll just have to wait.

There was a great going away party for us on Friday night. It was a lot of fun. The youth board got us this beautiful framed print and everyone signed the back. Angie made me a scrapbook to put pictures from that night in and everyone signed the pages...and Rick made me a DVD with the kids saying things on it and pictures from events and stuff...that's the best gift. I know I'll watch that many times. Sunday, they had a little cake reception for us after church. That was so nice. It was really hard to say goodbye but we made it through. We got some nice gifts. I got a basket full of Creative Memories stuff from our Mission crew ladies (and Tammy) so that was super nice. Everyone has been so great to us these past two years. It's hard to leave but I know that God is in control and He knows what is best for Greg and I.

So here's our plan. Keep packing...run to the mall...dinner at 6:00 at the Bryan's house. Tomorrow we get up finish any last minute packing, pick up the truck, eat lunch and then people are coming over at 1:00pm to help us load the truck. Then we'll have pizza and hang out. We'll spend our last night in this house on an air mattress and leave for Indiana 8am Wednesday morning. Please keep us in your prayers as we travel. Greg is driving the truck... a 24 foot truck with a car carrier...and I'll be following in the mini van. Please also pray that once we get a little settled I can find a job. Well, I better get back to packing. Have an awesome day and know that you are loved!

Jamie,
I pray you have a safe trip and that God will bless you and Greg in your new chapter of your life together. You are in my prayers. The girls and I might just plan a trip to come and see you within the next year since you are living in a mansion! Although, I might have to bring along Dan! I'm sure him and Greg would be okay as long as there were "games" to play (xbox or playstation). I look forward to seeing the pics of your new home! God Bless! Susan

Hey guys, have a safe trip and we will be praying for you. Oh, I know it is late, but I am going to be sending a letter soon. I didn't want it to get mixed up in the bag--plus I wanted to think some more about I want to tell you Greg. Anyway, have a safe trip. Cory and Kristin
