So here we are....April 3rd will be Jadelyn's last day at her school. She has had such a great time there and they are so sad to see her go, and we are sad she won't be able to finish the year out. Here is the exciting news...April 6th we are leaving El Monte and heading to good old Armstrong, IA. How exciting. It will take some getting use to since we are use to always living in the big cities. It will probably be hardest for Darrel since he has never lived in a small town before! We are bless to have a place to ourselves and it has been offered to us for 6 months rent free!!!! We were also hoping to get a house which we signed papers for and still haven't closed on. We got an AMAZING deal on it and we really thought it was for us...but we are starting to think it was not what God wanted us to do!

Both of us had phone interviews with a company there and it went great. We will be going in person once we get into town. Pray pray pray!

We are sad to be leaving friends and family here and really hope that transitioning goes well for all of us!

Much love

Most of you know that I am not a huge Obama fan. For those of you who didn't really know I am sure it doesn't come as a surprise. I wasn't really a huge McCain supporter either. Don't get me wrong I think it's great our country has come so far and we now have a black president. I think that's great...Honestly Alan Keyes was a better fit for me. Anyway...
He is here in Southern California and you can't help but over hear conversations and see the news and read the paper without hearing about the town hall meeting and all that is going on while he is here. To me Obama is a great speaker, he speaks well and he has a great ability to get people behind him and support him. My problem is that it seems he says what people want to hear and this I think is going to get him in trouble. I think it's funny that he acted like he didn't know about AIG's bonuses. Honestly I think that's something that they couldn't have missed, it's something they had to know. And I find it funny that I only heard about it once on TV that Washington actually knew about it. Interesting how the news works. Anyway this is probably one of those rambling that will get people on my case, but I know that many people don't think the way I do. That's ok...I'm use to it. But hey if you want to comment I am all for hearing what you think.

Time Change

So I would saw I kind of hate the whole time change thing. I would love to live in Arizona where they don't have it!! Anyway, but every morning I am so thankful for the time change. My kids have been sleeping "later". I mean to their bodies it's the sametime everyday, but to me and the time change it's almost an hour later! Ahhh how sweet!

It's a GIRL!!!

You heard right everybody! The Usserys are about to add one more girl to the family!!! Do you think Darrel can handle another girl in his life??? He is going to be so out numbered.

At our first ultrasound we were somewhat lead to believe that the baby was a boy. How crazy!!! It was exciting to think about having a boy...something we know nothing about. But today I went for another ultrasound that my friend so lovingly provided for us! THANKS JEN! We were for sure we were having a boy...but it's a girl! I saw it with my own eyes!!!

Don't get me wrong I am so not disappointed I am just shocked! I was all geared and ready for a boy I guess you could say. In the beginning I wanted a girl. Four girls were just so exciting to I am so excited to have another girl!!! It also makes the bedroom arrangements so much easier. Two girls in each room!

We are also moving to Iowa very soon. I know some are not happy to hear we are leaving sunny California...while others are thinking...It's about time! Hopefully we will be packed and ready to go by the 1st part of April. We have been offered a home to live in rent free for 6 months while we wait for things to come together. Be in prayer for us as we get ready to go and we pray about our future.

Been a long time...

It's been awhile since I have written anything. Not because I haven't wanted to write, I just haven't had the time lately! The girls have been getting sickness after sickness and it's not fun! I hate having sick kids! Liliana had a terrible ear infection and very high fever. All of them were passing around the cold. Scarletta lost her voice and sounded so cute but so sad. Scarletta also got thresh. I am not sure if that is how you write it. So time to sterilize all her bottles and binkies!!!! On top of sick kids Darrel and I both have school and work at times. We do our classes when we can fit them in and Darrel goes to work when they need him and I work 3 days a week. Jadelyn also has daily homework from preschool...did I ever have homework in preschool? I don't think so...but Jadelyn loves it! We have had homework time with her since before she was two. She is this smart little girl who loves to learn and it's overwhelming to me at times. People talk about when their kids constantly ask why...Jadelyn doesn't ask why she just talks and talks and asks questions when she really wants to know something. Her biggest thing is asking what a word means when she doesn't know it. This is somewhat fun for me cause I like to throw in "big" words to see if she asks what they mean...she ALWAYS does! Liliana is mommy's girl and she gets sad every time I leave the house. It makes my heart break. I know I will see her soon, but she doesn't understand time yet she just knows I am leaving and wants to come with me! I love coming home to hear her scream "MOMMY MOMMY!" It makes my heart so happy.

I have been thinking a lot about our lives. A lot of people don't understand why we went to Asia and why we want to go back. So I think a part of me has been trying to make myself think maybe I don't want to go back, just so that people will understand me. It seems all my life I have never really been understood. I want so badly at times to fit in here and have people understand me...but really no one will ever get me. I will always feel like an outside. I will always feel like I should be somewhere else...and I think I should. God has put a huge call in my life...a huge love for a place that most of the people I know have never had the privilege of going to. It's hard cause I know that some people may see it as being unfair to my kids to keep taking them back and forth, but you could ask Jadelyn where we live and she would answer China. Although lately she says we won't go back until she likes spicy food. This is a call that people saw in my life way before I saw it. I felt a tug, but ignored it and people kept telling me...Sarah your going to be a missionary. I would deny it all the time...and here I am again feeling like I am doing the same thing. It so hard for me cause I really want two things. I really want to be in Asia and I really want people to understand me & fit in. But it seems I can't have both. All I can do now is pray...
