What a wonderful trip to Florida we have had! It has been great to be with those of our family that were here.
As you can tell from the pictures, Caroline is growing so fast! She is such a sweet baby, and both sets of grandparents really wish we'd leave her with them and they would watch her while we unpack boxes! Now, that sure would help things go faster at our house, but I think the people at the church would be wondering where she was, too!
Caroline is a cutie...check out her new pictures above!

We are on the last leg of our fun trip to Florida! Visiting with family has been so good! Everyone has loved seeing Ryan and I...oh wait, I guess they have loved seeing Caroline! :) We just are an added treat! :)

Ryan and Caroline have napped, as you see above, and we even tried the swimming pool! However, Caroline made funny noises when we put her in, so we assumed it was too cold for a prolonged dip in the water! She is also doing a great job sitting up in a booster seat that Mom and Dad had from other grandkids. Caroline is growing up right before our eyes!

We have had a great visit in Orlando this week! Caroline had fun with Grammy and Poppi, and with her Aunt Katie, Aunt Sarah, Uncle Tim, and Uncle Frank. She also got to see her great-grandparents as well! Caroline had a fun bath in the sink last night, and breakfast at Denny's this morning. We look forward to seeing the family again soon, hopefully for Ryan's ordination in December.

We have been enjoying visiting Ryan's family in Orlando these past few days! Here is Caroline eating breakfast with Grammy! She enjoyed her carrots and ate a lot. Aunt Sarah also had some fun time with her before heading to class.

We are having a great time visiting with Jeff, Christy, and the kids. As you can see from the pictures, Caroline and Connor look alike! They had fun playing together! Claire even wanted Aunt Kim to dress like her! We had fun.

Yesterday Caroline had so much fun sitting up in the corner of the couch that I had to take some pictures! Here are the best ones I took! She is growing so much!

Caroline's Baby Dedication

We had Caroline's baby dedication this past Sunday night in Wake Forest at Wake Crossroads Baptist Church, the church we were a part of during our Seminary time. It was a special time for us as we dedicated ourselves as parents to raise Caroline in a godly home, teaching her about the Lord and to love the Lord and others as He does. Pray for us as parents as we strive to be godly each day! Caroline is a blessing to us, and we are so very grateful!
Well, we have finally moved and officially moved to Georgia! We packed up in Wake Forest on Tuesday and headed for Senoia on Wednesday. For those of you who don't know, Ryan got a job as youth minister at a church in Senoia, Georgia and will start in a few weeks. He is very excited about all God has for him there. We also know that God has great things planned for our family here, even though it was really hard leaving Wake Forest. We had a wonderful time there and were blessed with great friends, and great church, and a great Seminary experience. If you would, be praying for our family as we adjust to life in little Senoia (which we really like) and to the new journey that is in front of us. Pray for friends for Caroline and I as we spend days at home. I am so excited for Ryan, as I know how God uses him with youth. We will put some pictures up soon!
A big thanks to my dad for helping Ryan load the truck and driving the Penske for us and helping us get our new home together.

We give glory to God for the ways we have seen him provide over this past week!
