Here We Go Again....

I started this blog about 2 years ago, hoping to give a little glimpse into our world as we were preparing to make a big move.

Well, that's happening again.

Brandon has a new job with John Deere and we're heading to Champaign, IL.  It's a short term gig, expected to last just a couple years.

This is bittersweet as it's a lot further away from our family and friends, but it's a great opportunity for Brandon and his career.

These past few days we spent in Champaign so Brandon could go to his new office for a few meetings and we could do a little house hunting.

In the mean time, our house went on the market.  And I feel so blessed to say that after going on the market Wednesday morning, we accepted an offer Wednesday evening!  So, our house in Olathe is SOLD in just a day!  Praising the Lord for a quick sale and great price!

Now we're waiting to hear back on an offer we have in Champaign.....

So, in a month or so, our time in Kansas will come to an end as we start a new chapter in Illinois.  But, here's hoping, that it gets the Fischer family one step closer to the goal of being back in Central Iowa!

And because you can't do a good blog post without a's a belated Father's Day Pic!

Our Month of May

The month of May flew by.....can't believe it's JUNE already!  Here's a few highlights:

-Lawson turned 16 months on May 1
-Brandon and I took a trip with some friends up to Minnesota to celebrate Kiley's 30th Birthday!  The kids stayed in Ames with my family and had a blast!

-We enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day with Brandon's parents in St. Joseph, MO.  It was a perfect meeting point where we ate a yummy lunch and then went to a local park where we played and even fed some geese!


-When we weren't traveling on the weekends, we found ways to fill our time during the week.....Lawson found a new hiding spot for hide and seek.....

-We went to Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead and had a fun time checking out all the animals and having a picnic lunch! (I included the link to our trip to the farm last year)

-Over Memorial weekend we went to Omaha.  We took a day to go to the zoo and put our new stroller to the test!  The rest of the weekend was filled with good food and family fun as all the brothers and their significant others were home! 

And now it's June!  Lawson is now 17 months old and is saying SO MANY WORDS!  Lillia is well over 3 1/2 years old and is such a little mom.  We are loving the "summer" we have been dealt so far and are looking forward to it warming up a little so we can venture down the street to the pool!
