Here’s us getting all packed up:
We moved safely to Ridgway on June 25th. The kids actually did pretty well, considering it was a long 4 hour trip (with stops). Each of our munchkins tooks turns riding with Daddy in the big (and I do mean BIG) moving truck. If you think a 3o foot truck with a 20 foot trailer sounds big….take a look:
The big-o truck!
The alternate driver
As we were coming into Ridgway, I had the unmistakable feeling of coming home. It was surprising to me since I’d only been there a few times, but as I saw the mountains and all the green fields and trees, I felt like this was where I had always been meant to be. It was almost overwhelming to me. Call it what you want, but to me it was a re-affirmation from the Lord that this was THE place for us. The spirit was undeniable.
The view going up the hill to where we live
I was so grateful that I wasn’t driving that huge rig, especially as we made the trek up the windy mountain to LogHill Village where our new home is. The house is on a cul-de-sac, but the truck was too big to turn around, so Ammon had the joy of back the truck and trailer from the end of the street into the long driveway. (again, glad I wasn’t driving!!!).
I was in awe of how awesome the house was when we first arrived. So spacious and bright and we could barely see our neighbors house because of all the trees! Kevin and I decided to walk around the house and explore for a few minutes and we ran right into a doe who was eating, laying down (sometimes that sounds like a good idea). We were only maybe 7 or 8 feet away from her and she just stared at us for a few min and then got up and walked away. Kevin was pretty impressed at our new digs from then on.

We had the truck unpacked in about 4 hours…not bad since it was just Ammon and I and we were supervising three energy-filled children! We couldn’t wait to explore!
