off to the Ranch!

When its time for the movers to come we always clear out of the house the day before. It just works out better for us to have everything we need to take on our trip out of the house, so we go stay in a hotel. It is usually a fun time for all of us. A hotel stay of about two weeks with seven kids including a newborn was not sounding that fun this time though.

Ah, but we have some wonderful friends who happen to live on a ranch. That ranch used to be a working ranch. It has extra houses for the ranch hands that used to be needed there. One of the houses is furnished. It's for missionaries and friends in need of a place to stay. It has a large fenced in yard for kids to play an explore in. Yea, we get to stay in that house!
It's a bit hard to see, but the house is on top of the hill. The area fenced in by the white fence is "our" yard.

I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks of very minimal house work. The big kids are excited about getting to play in the big yard and are hoping to be able to help out with chores around the ranch (horses, chickens etc.). We are all looking forward to some extra fellowship with these dear friends before we head out of town!


  1. Such a blessing to have all of that open space for the kiddos! Cannot wait to meet the newest addition.

  2. That is so great! What a blessing!
