This is a picture of Kardia. Next month she'll turn 1 yr and she is already walking around a litle. She is very determined! Of course Kaireia and Neidon are big encouragers.
On our way to Ohio, Darin called Reed and let us know that one of the guys from the church had a condo for rent, that was move-in ready. We checked it out on Friday and spent most of Sunday afternoon moving in. It is such a blessing to have a place so quickly. We are able to go month to month, making it easy to move when we buy a house. It is a really cute place. Cozy, but cute! It is three levels, including a full basement. Reed has decided that he never wants to live anywhere else without a basement. It has been so handy to store things. Especially since we are still leaving things packed up, until we buy a house. I'll post pictures when I get them.
We are still staying at Rachel and Darin's house until tomorrow night. It has been so nice to be able to stay with them. They have been so generous to us! We feel really blessed!
We were so ready to be in Ohio by day three! It seemed to take forever to actually get there. And then, when we made it into town, I had the wrong address, so we went to the wrong place. Oh well! Much of the scenery was pretty boring along the way. Lots of corn and wheat fields!
We were able to stop by Ozark Christian College for Reed to show us around and also meet up with a few of his friends. We stopped and ate dinner with the Kleemans and saw Kairou's grave. It was so great to see part of Reed's upbringing that he has talked about so much. We also pasted by a few weird things on the road. We saw two huge crosses on the roadway and a McDonald's that went over the highway.

Well, we decided to start a blog to keep in better touch with our family and friends! We moved this week to Columbus, OH. We packed everything up on Monday and left Tuesday morning. It was such a long trip,but we finally made it to Columbus on Thursday evening! My dad came down from OR, which was so great, to help us! He was so helpful and made the trip so much easier! Here are a few pictures from our fun adventure. We traveled through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and then finally made it to Ohio!
