All our bags are packed and we’re ready to go

All our earthly goods in a UHaul headed from Oregon to TexasThis morning we packed all of the things we had accumulated from a year of fourth floor studio apartment living in Wilsonville, Oregon into a 5×8 U-Haul. It is amazing how much stuff one accumulates, even in such a cramped space. Dinner is planned tonight with our dear friend Gladys followed by church tomorrow morning and evening with Grandpa Milo and Grandma Sarah. After that, we are off to Texas.

It has amazed us how everything worked out for us to return to Oregon, but then nothing worked out after that for us to stay. We are not too excited about spending too much more time in an apartment so we are working hard to find a house where we can settle down for the long term. In the meantime, we look forward to some time with Christian in Tempe next week.

  1. I have no idea how I stumbled across you, but I am Dale’s grand daughter through Ben. Milo and Sarah then, are my great uncle and aunt. They are often on my mind. What a blessing to find you.

  2. Wow! It is very kind of you to write. You please tell your Dad hello for me. I would love to hear where you are and what you are doing if you get a chance to pop me an email!

  3. Oh I sure will. He will be here tomorrow to go fishing in my trout pond. (Always bring back memories of Milo’s pond) <3 I will catch up with you via e-mail now.
