The wait is finally over. The official news is that we will be staying in Louisiana for at least another year.
To make a long story short, we were hoping to move back closer to family, either in Fernandina Beach or in Graceville. In the long run, none of our options worked out and we made the decision today to stay in Louisiana for the time being. I for one, even though disappointed, was relieved to finally have a decision. I felt like I'd been on this crazy, emotional, roller coaster, for the last month or so, and I just wanted off. When the ride came to a stop today, I can't say that there wasn't a moment of tears, but I rest in the fact that God is sovereign and in control.
Ryan did some paperwork with the realtor today on the apartment we want to rent in Slidell. We should know something soon. But unless something unexpected comes up, it should be a done deal. We really like the place. It's in a nice neighborhood, has a great backyard, and is in walking distance of a park.
Ryan's vacation starts Sunday afternoon after he gets off work. We'll drive to Graceville and stay with my parent's on Sunday night and then on to Fernandina to spend the week with Ryan's family. I'm really looking forward to spending time with family and friends next week. After that, it will be back home to pack and get ready to move across town. Continue to pray for us.
