Because we had all of our belongings on a 27′ ABF trailer in storage, we had to rent vacation homes as they are furnished. The home in Pittsburg, Missouri had some vacationers already scheduled to arrive in late June so we reserved a place in Huntsville, Arkansas. Unfortunately, we all were extremely sick (vomiting and fevers) just the day before having to pack and leave for Arkansas so it was very hard to get up and go to get here.
We just loved it here. These people own over 400 acres and have other homes on here that they rent out to vacationers. They do weddings here and other events. Yet, it’s out in the middle of nowhere. It was so beautiful here, we had a wonderful time healing up here.
A week later we had to go to Pittsburg again for a week and then Columbia for a week…. then we get to move in our new/old home built in 1909. Here we are in Columbia, Missouri for a week. The older kids swam in a hot tub nearly every day. They all played outside so much here that Matthew and I got some good time alone. So, here’s Benjamin.
Say, “Bye”, Benjamin, “See you at our new house!”
On our drive to Bolivar to stay at the Super 8 motel that night, Matthew had a major problem with his truck. We spent over 4 hours working on his truck with a nice gentleman in 90+ degree heat in a Wendy’s parking lot. Soooo many people bought the kids soda and ice cream or offered to help Matthew or to feed the kids. We finally had his truck towed to a shop, they fixed it in under 2 hours and we made it to the hotel that night by 8:00 or so. Thank God for all the people who helped us that day, it made me feel so good about the loving, giving people we always seem to meet in Missouri.
We had the most pleasant time signing papers for our home the next morning. We met the owners once again and they then headed for Texas. They will be here to pick up their belongings in storage at the end of July and will stop by one last time at this house. They are good Christian people. Okay, see you at the house next. I have over 300 pictures and certainly can’t post all of them so it may take a few days. 🙂
