Margaret (Curtis) McDaniel + Curtis McDaniel = Curtis.Squared

We've moved!

We left our beautiful home in Savannah on June 18 to begin our journey to West Lafayette that would end on June 19.  Curtis drove the moving truck with Lion-O.  I took our little Civic with Anna and Grandma.  Grandma helped out so much, she was a lifesaver!

On both sides of the trip, we had people helping us move out/in.  It was very hard to say goodbye to so many sweet people that we've come to love over the past 4 years in Savannah.  It was encouraging to see how many people in Indiana (from our new church family or from RUF at Purdue) were willing to help us out, even though they may not have even met us yet!

Here's Anna's take on the whole thing (with the help of Grandma):

We are really excited about our new house!

We think that it's going to be very practical for our plans in RUF.  We wanted to have large, open common areas so that we are able to invite students over to our home.  We also wanted to have a basement where Curtis could work from home.  We still have some work to do around the house, but here's a picture of most of the rooms:

 Curtis' Office (yes, he's got a pretty good setup)
 And of course, I had to add in Anna.  She waited so patiently for me to finish taking all these pictures! :)
