Not us... my parents! Back in December my dad retired after about 35 years in the ministry. More than 30 of those years were spent at First Baptist Church in Pillager, MN. His first church was in Quamba, MN. Yep, I'm a small town girl... Saint Cloud is HUGE!! LOL I lived the first two years of my life in a parsonage in Quamba, right across the street from the church. The next decade of my life was spent in a parsonage in Pillager several blocks from the church. Next, we moved into a newly constructed parsonage built next to the church.
Now, for the first time (and ironically the same year my brother and his wife are purchasing their first home) my parents will own their own home! The house was built on a lot near the school by the Construction Trades class. On Tuesday, the house was moved to it's permanent home on 5 acres north of Pillager. I had planned on coming home Monday, but stayed through Tuesday so my kids could see the move. It was exciting, and a little scary, watching that house heading down the road! I had a knot in my stomach... my mom, who was riding with me, was near tears (mostly joy, and a bit of trepidation). When we got to the highway, Victory finally realized the house was in front of us and said, "Hey! I didn't know the house was driving!!" LOL
It was a cold, nasty day, but worth sticking around for! Here's some pictures of the big event...
Congratulations, Mom & Dad!!
