May 13, 2003

Well we have some very exciting news to share with all of you.  As of May 19th, our house will officially be on the market.  I am sure many are saying, "wow but they just moved out there 2 years ago".  We sure did and found out real quick that our life was still in the Grand Rapids area.  With Joel traveling to Cascade everyday, which is close to a 45 minute drive and going to church in Rockford every Sunday.  We have found that we are really putting some miles on our cars and it makes for a long day for Joel.  We are either looking to buy or build in the Cedar Springs area.  This will bring us so much closer to all of the things that we do on a regular basis.  So as you can tell we are very busy. 

We forgot to mention in our last update that we had bought our first mini van.  Tina absolutely loves to drive the 2001 Chrysler Town and Country.  We think Maddie loves it too because she can see out much better.  Speaking of Maddie, her birthday is only a month and a half away.  We are going to have a huge bash for her on June 28th.  You are all invited to share in on the fun.  Maddie is also very close to walking now.  Just this week she was sitting on the floor in the middle of the room and decided to stand up.  She did this without the help of anything around her, and she is doing it all of the time.  Her new words are baby, puppy, Elmo (well sort of, it sounds pretty close), and we think she said her name a few weeks ago.  She also has two bottom front teeth now, that make for a great grin.  So that is really all there is for now.  As news comes up about the house we will let you know.  Until then God Bless all of you.
