Well, we're all settling into our new home here in the sweet little town of Georgetown, Texas. Every now and then Bart and I look at each other and say, "How in the world did we end up here?!" Well, we know exactly how- God has led us here and that is a good enough reason for us
Here is a Cliff Notes version of our last 7 months.
May: Moved into our new little home nestled into the sweetest little neighborhood. Many thanks to many friends and Nana and Papa who helped us with our move!

|Boxes and furniture are in the house- now on to the FUN work- the GARDEN!|
|Chick makes a fab assistant|
June: How else do you spend hot Texas days? At the pool, of course! Chick and I got a membership to our little Rec Center Pool and boy did it pay off. We also spent many-a afternoons playing in the sprinkler in the backyard. Blessed!
|The backyard never gets old|
|The only time for the park is early in the am!|
July: Papaw (my dad) came to visit! The Texas heat didn't stop us from getting out and celebrating the 4th! Georgetown has the best small town festivities. We were able to go down to the San Gabriel Park for the 4th Festival. And with Papaw's help, Chick was able to ride her first pony! Way to go, brave gal!
|Patiently waiting her turn to ride the pony.|
|Fishing on the San Gabriel|
|Dad doesn't care that his pole is pink with princesses on it! He just loves to fish!|
|Chick enjoys her first fishing trip.|
|Two peas in a pod|
August: We made a trek to Cincy to visit my extended family and then went to Tennessee to enjoy time with Gigi and Papaw and my sister's family!
|I should have took more "blog" photos from our Cincy trip! Here is Chick walking Cici with Auntie Kristen and Aunt Wendy. We're on our way to ice cream! (or "i- kees" as a certain tot calls it)|
|Chick gets to know her 2nd cousin, Maria!|
|Aglamesis Ice Cream! My grandmother grew up going here for ice cream- it was such a treat to get to experience a little of my grandmother's childhood.|
|Back in TN! We were able to cheer Mason on during his baseball games!|
|The Gunckels: Love that family.|
|Papaw and Gigi have been working hard on building their new home. Chick gives herself a tour on wheels.|
|Petting the "no-keys"|
September: Our new church plant, Redemption Hill Church launched! I cannot even express how much I LOVE our new church family. I don't have any photos on hand. I should work on that.
We also celebrated Bart's 31st birthday
|Of course we celebrated by going HUNTING!|
|We didn't get many shots this season- we're already looking forward to Dove Season 2014~|
Chick also started a music class at Dolce Music with Mrs. Bebe. One of the highlights of our week!
|The girl loves, loves, loves music. And "Queen Treble"|
|HEBuddy. Need I say more?|
We were also able to enjoy a glass bottom boat tour in San Marcos. Crystal clear water with some pretty incredible species!
|Aaaaa...gotta loves those pig tails. Or "piggies" as we call them :)|
|Chick and I enjoy the view at the bottom of our boat.|
|Fish! Turtles! Salamanders!|
Nana had the chance to come out and visit us! She got to celebrate Bart's birthday a little late and Chick's birthday a little early! The highlight was absolutely Sea World (Chick's birthday present this year).
|Driving south down 35, a stop at Buckee's is a MUST!|
|Dad and Chick get a close-up at Sea World|
|Feeding the dolphins!|
|Bart and Jacob get a pretty good view of warm-up before the game!|
While Bart was in College Station, Chick and I went to out to Marble Falls with our church family to enjoy some fall fun at Sweet Berry Farm. This is quickly becoming an annual tradition for our family.
|Chick picks some lovely flowers at the farm.|
And of course, we a great time on Halloween. Living in a little neighborhood filled with kids makes celebrating holidays even more fun!
|Minnie and the little peacock are off to trick-or-treat with our SWEET neighbors!|
|One last wave to her trick-or-treating friends!|
|I was missing my old one, so I had to get a replacement.|
