Long Overdue Update!

Thank you to all of you for being patient as we transitioned to Phoenix.  I have missed you all and have missed blogging.  Where did the summer go?!?!

After my summer break from blogging it is time for me to share with you what is happening in the Herrgesell world.

We are NOT preggo! Yippee! When you have 2 kids back-to-back and then you say you have news everyone’s first question is, “Are you pregnant?”.  We are not.

Carl and Faith in Oak Brook, IL for Ace Hardware Training.

We are embarking on a new adventure. Not only have we moved to a new state, but Carl and I are joing together with his parents to open an Ace Hardware store here in Phoenix.  The store will actually be in Peoria, AZ which is just outside of Phoenix on the Northwest side.  We are currently waiting for the renovations to be completed at our location, and we are hoping to open the store late this fall.  If you want to follow our progress and keep up with what is happening at the store you can check out our Facebook Page.

Janie Lou and Gracie in their Husker gear!

We LOVE our girls! The girls have transitioned well and survived the hot summer!

Janie Lou is taking swimming lessons.  She loves it!  She will be 21 months old this week and is practicing being TWO! She will be a pro by her birthday!

Gracie is 7 1/2 months and crawling everywhere and starting to cruise around the furniture.  She is very smiley and has a very sweet demeanor. They are growing up so quickly!  They love having Grammy and Grandpa Herrgesell just across town and enjoyed having my mom here for 10 days!

Mountain bike ride!

In addition to getting the store ready, Carl and I have been enjoying the beautiful mountains here in Phoenix.  This week we got to ride Deem Hills!  We have had a fabulous summer just being a family.  God has been so good to us, and we are so grateful for all the blessings He has bestowed on us.
