Our New Adventure

We made it safely up to Washington. For those of you who don't know, Greg's dad Terry has had cancer for awhile now, and needs a bone marrow transplant. They found a donor, and the procedure is set to take place in a few weeks. Terry and Elaine (his wife) will be in Seattle for a few months following the transplant, and they still have four kids at home. They will not be able to come home at all for over 3 months So Greg and I came up to help out for as long as we can. Greg will help on the farm and I will help in the home. We're so thankful that we are in a position to be able to help when needed. My job allows me to work from anywhere and my boss fully understands the situation and is willing to make it work. Greg has the most incredible boss in the world (my daddy) who let him have a few months off so he could be here for his family. We really are so grateful for their understanding and flexibility.

So we'll be living up here in Washington until sometime in July. We would stay longer, but I'm due in August and would really prefer to have my baby at my home with my doctor. Call me crazy. ;) We're excited and concerned at the same time. Excited to have time to spend time with Greg's family. Excited to be able to help. Concerned for Terry. Concerned to be in charge of four teenagers! There's a reason that you start with babies and slowly work your way up to teenagers. But they are great kids and I'm sure it will all work out okay. We are not asked to do things we are incapable of. As long as I can remember to rely on the strength of my Savior and not my own, things will be okay. Easier said then done, isn't it?

If anyone can make this work, you can!! Hopefully everything will go really well! The only thing I know about teenage boys is that they'll do almost anything for a pizza or burgers ;)
