The Revolving Door Years

Right about the time I caught my breath and brought my blog up-to-date, life came apart at the seams again!  (Does that happen at your house, too??)

You see, we are in the midst of those Revolving Door years!  Someone is always coming or going, moving in or moving out, and life gets a bit crazy!!

Today, Taylor moved out.  He left to attend college about an hour away.  Here he is with his truck all loaded up and ready to roll.

Telling Joe good-bye . . . with usual brotherly craziness!

They exchanged a few big, man-hugs with carefully synchronized back slaps!  ;)

Then a big, bear hug for Chris too!  :)

So, we now have one less son in the house . . . .

But, we've added a daughter and all of her Stuff!!!

The past couple weeks have been consumed wtih moving our oldest daughter, Tiffany, out of her apartment in Albany and into our house.  She has taken up residence in the guest room, and her furniture is stuffed into various nooks and crannies in the living room, bonus room and garage!!  So, we've had lots of rearranging and organizing taking place!

Such are the Revolving Door years!!  Someone moves in; someone moves out; you move your stuff around and shake it all about!  ;)

Moving Tiffany's piano is always the most challenging part, but thankfully, we have some very strong fellas and some nice, wide steps, and they didn't have a problem!

So thankful for these amazingly strong young men and their willingess to help out!!

The guest bedroom is small, oddly shaped, and a little awkward -- so I really didn't think it was possible for Tiffany to fit all of her stuff in it; however, she is not only a fashionista, but an organizing queen, so she was able to stuff an amazing amount of stuff into the room and still make it look quite cozy and inviting.  Here, take a peek and see what you think . . .

Didn't she make it look cute??

I have lots more to share in the days ahead, including a testimony of Tiffany's journey of faith and God's amazing provision . . . . so stay tuned!!

I love what Tiffany has done with the room! :)

Taylor must have changed schools (again!) as I thought he was commuting there locally.

I think it is nice Tiffany is moving back home, and she has a new job! I can't wait to read all the details about God directing her path!

Well, one good thing about moving and shaking all is good for burning calories! LOL

Such is life I suppose. I don't know what we'll do if when we lose one or both of our boys. So not ready for that. But I know the time will come. I just hope it's way in the future.
