A loooooong overdue Isaac update!

It really is quite ridiculous how long it's been since I've posted a blog entry. And for all my faithful readers-all 4 of you...chuckle- I'm sorry about that! Soooo much has happened these past few months, as we find ourselves living in a bit of limbo between Chattanooga, TN and Lagrange, GA. Several months ago, Roby was presented with an awesome career opportunity at the carpet company Milliken. After carefully weighing the pros and cons and praying, praying, praying, Roby left the company he has worked at for 10 years (which is an awesome accomplishment in itself!) to join his old designer buddy Todd in this new endeavor. While Roby was sad to leave his company and work friends behind, he was extremely excited for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of something progressive that will stimulate his creativity.

Our house has been on the market for several months, so Roby has had to work a week at a time in GA and TN, which is hard on us as a family with two small children under the age of 4...but we are managing. We continue to house hunt in GA, trusting that God will provide the perfect living situation for us as we try to transition to a new town and get Owen in pre-school. So many decisions need to be made and so many steps of faith taken! We appreciate your prayers as we try to navigate our way during this unsettling state of flux.

The children continue to thrive, with Owen approaching his fourth birthday in October, and Livy Lu just turning one on July 24th! We definitely have our hands full, but we wouldn't have it any other way!

During these summer months we have been quite the busy bees. We made several whirlwind trips...during our fifth annual fourth of July trip (although it took place in May this year :) we met up with our cousins and friends in New Orleans for a week. Wonderful times! We also jetted to Michigan for Juleen's wedding (one of my bridesmaids was now the bride and I was honored to be her maid!) and to Philly for our cousin Binoy's wedding to Ryn (we were honored to be a part of their bridal party as well!) My Mom was also able to come to Chattanooga to visit in June while Roby was in Chicago for work- which the kids thoroughly enjoyed! Lastly, the kids and I whisked Roby away to a secret location for his 32nd birthday = Savannah,GA! Despite Olive having a high fever the entire weekend, we still had a lot of fun on our little family vacation. In other news, last month I became a Creative Memories Consultant...and I hope to be able to grow my fledgeling business so I too can contribute to our family! We'll see how it goes! (Later I'll post some of my digital scrapbooking pages with a few details about what I do!) I'm sure I'm missing a TON of stuff that's been going on with the Isaacs for the past 6 months (have I mentioned just HOW behind I am with my blog posts? I still need to post pics from CHRISTMAS when my mom, brother and sis-in-law visited...yikes! So forgive me if I start posting old pictures in an attempt to catch up in the blogosphere! :) Hopefully soon I can post pics from Olive's first birthday and our various trips!
