So, I realize it's been a few weeks since I've posted anything. It's not that I don't have anything to post. It's just a matter of finding the time and energy to do it (especially uploading photos). So a quick list of what's happening:
The main thing keeping us busy these days (mostly me since I'm at home) is getting ready for the move. On top of finding a home in California for us to live in, we are trying to sell/rent out our house here in San Antonio AND we're trying to find new renters for our townhouse in Maryland. It's kind of a handful - mainly of stress. But we feel good about the routes we're taking. After 2 months of this, we're mostly just ready to be past it and move on.
We're very sad to leave San Antonio and the amazing friends we've made here, but I'll delve into that another time. We are very excited to head back to California and be closer to a bunch of family and lots of fun places to visit.
Another big event happening is Maya's birthday. (Matt had one too, but our focus is on Maya this time.) Maya turned 8 and we're getting things ready for her baptism in a couple of weeks. It's a very special occasion and we're so excited that Grandma and Grandpa Crop can come along with Aunt Jessica and Uncle Lance and the Ferreira kids. It's always good times when they come to play!!
So, hopefully sooner rather than later, we'll have some fun pictures and stories posted for your reading enjoyment as well as for our family journal.
