Getting Settled!

But first some more pics of a couple of days leading up to the move.

The boys probably did this a dozen times until the movers arrived! Jacob originally thought he would ride his bike down the ramp! AAAH! Thankfully he thought of this instead!

The filled to the top truck!

We made a couple stops to our Favorite places!

APOLLO'S is a Skammer Favorite!

We really used to eat there 2 - 3 times a week right after Jacob was born. Now it's once ever week or two. Much better!

Family Picture at our Favorite Pizza Place

Another favorite...Gelati Celesti! JM & I have been going there since we were dating! yummy!

we invited ourselves to dinner at the JONES'. It was wonderful to eat some of Kathy's Cooking...we were so tired of eating out!

A couple of the guys wanted to celebrate "their birthday"!

They went all out!

They make a great team!

Bye Bye Chelsea Brook Lane!

and now we are here in Roanoke! We are getting settled in nicely and really enjoy our new home. Here is the view from our back deck...that is Jacob's school with the green roof. We have already made quite a few trips over there to play, ride bikes, and take picnic lunches.

Jacob's best friend has already made a visit here as well! He has some family that lives about 45 minutes away! Perfect for them to get together.

and for the Olympic Opening Ceremony we had make your own pizza night. The boys did a great job with the dessert pizza!

I don't have much more for pictures yet. We do have some of their cousins' visit but I haven't uploaded to the computer yet. Coming soon! Hope that was good for an update!

yay! i have been dying to hear how yall are doing. i am stunned at the view yall have - so gorgeous! i was instantly reminded of this Scripture when i saw that picture:
"i lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from? my help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." -psalm 121:1-2

our God is so faithful...last fall i would never have thought that the sweet skammers would be looking out their back door to MOUNTAINS!!

and happy to see the lynches were able to visit. :) keep these updates coming! i miss yall and hope everything is going really well.

p.s. you are one hot mama these days! you've got to stop losing weight! :)
