Hard to believe but yesterday marked our 3rd wedding anniversary! As we look back on these last 3 years we are amazed at how much God has blessed us. They have been the best 3 years of our lives. Daniel came home from work yesterday with a lovely card in which he stated that the only thing he would do differently if we could go back is gotten married a year sooner! I feel the same way. We had no idea this kind of happines existed. It is certainly a doing of the Lord!

Well, Lots of things have happened since I wrote that last post. First of all we celebrated Isaacs 2nd Birthday in GA with relatives which was alot of fun! We gave him a tractor with a bucket for his gift as seen in the picture above. He loves it! He has now graduated from his baby bed to a toddler bed, we even allowed him to stay in Ga following his birthday party with Grandma and Grandpa for a few days. The other big thing to happen is that Daniel has taken a different job. Before he signed any paperwork with MBP another company called him (English Construction) and gave him a far better offer and the opportunity of his dreams. Daniel accepted the offer to help mange/oversee the construction of a navy base in Portsmouth Va and also do some scheduling for the I-64 expansion project in Richmond. The company has asked us to relocate to Williamsburg, VA for the duration of the Navy base project which is scheduled to be completed in August of 2007. Daniel, James, and I have been in Williamsburg this week looking for a place to live. We found a beautiful apartment community named Monticello with a pool and workout facility which we just loved and have already signed a one year lease to rent a bottom floor apartment with 1370 sq ft. We chose a larger one with a fire place to have room for all the guests we hope will come and visit us! We were also thrilled to find out while we were there that Williamsburg residents can get a one year pass for only $10 per family to do anything there is to do in Colonial Williamsburg and get major discounts on passes to all the surrounding attractions such as Busch gardens. I know that we will have a wonderful time in Williamsburg. The hardest thing about this move will be leaving Christiansburg and being so far from family. To any of my fellow MOPS I regret that I won't be able to come next year. To all my Mary Kay customers I can still mail you whatever you need, and to any other friends and family I am sorry if this announcement has caught you as off guard as it has us! We certainly want to do our best to stay in touch with everyone and if you know anyone who needs to rent a large house in Christiansburg please let us know as we will be seeking to rent our house out for the month of July on. It is a 4 br 2 1/2 ba home close to the downtown area. Well, Its getting late so I had better be heading to bed. Love and Blessings to all, Lindsay
