The Last Year
We are in the last year of our tour in Alaska. I have such a happy heart that we get to live here one more year. This is a year filled with lots of excitement, nerves, and anticipation.
Our family has gotten to live in such great places and meet such great friends and this place is no exception. A big piece of our heart will always stay on this island. But...I can't help but get excited about what is ahead. We have a whole new story waiting to live and it's fun to be safely tucked away in this place while dreaming of the next.
The start of school always feels so full of excitement. This year is especially exciting because the kids have found their groove and now they just get to live in it. Next year will be a whole new story..but right now they get to have a year filled with great friends in a very special place. They do not need to worry about what is ahead. That is my job...but not yet.
God has brought so many great people and places into our life and I trust that will be the case for the next step..if anything I plan to appreciate this process more now than ever before. We may be coming close to the end of living this adventure with the Coast Guard ....and I know I will miss it!!
But for now...we are very much living in the moment....with 6 kids that's about all I can do.
