late 2013 in photos

We really didn't drop off the face of the earth, but much has happened in one year.  We sold our home by owner with two offers in four days in order to build our dream house.  It was a scramble to find somewhere to live with just a few weeks notice.  Thankfully, a friend's farmhouse was unoccupied, and she invited us to rent the house in the country while we built our next home.  This is the first time I've ever lived in the country.  The house sits on a gravel road surrounded by soybean fields.    It was quite an adventure!  Our family has lots of memories of hunting cicada shells, swinging from the rope swing, evening fires on the back porch, way too much snow, freezing pipes, and living together in one bed room.  We watched bulldozers break ground and it was exciting to see how quickly the Amish framing crew worked.  We stopped by our property most every day to check on progress and take pictures.  December 29, 2013 marked five years since we met our daughter Hannah in Taiwan.
