Oh my goodness. So much has been happening, and I haven't been able to blog. And blogging is how I process. Well, writing is how I process, but these days, writing = blogging.
So...we have internet, after ten days without it. And much has happened since I last blogged.
I think I will do this in list form.
1. We moved. We are moved in, and very nearly settled. And, we are adjusting very well, all things considered. Scott and I each had our emotional moments, where the reality of what was happening overwhelmed us, but we moved on from those moments, and we are actually loving our little, 1942, rental house. The yard is great, the "old house" of it is great, and I actually like the smallness. It has been so much easier to stay on top of the cleaning because there is so much less to clean. In fact, every night after dinner, we have a quick family "pick up," and by the time the kids are in bed, the house is in order. Crazy thought, right?
And, amazingly enough, Ada and John are doing Great with sharing a room. In fact, I think Ada is doing better at bed time. I think she is comforted by the fact that John is in the room with her. We put John down first, and we do our story and prayer routine in the master bedroom, and then we "sneak" Ada into her bed. It has worked great so far. Thank you, Lord!!! We can feel his hand all over this move, and we are so thankful. Let me show you a few parts of the house...
There is so much more to report...
Ada started school, which means I started teaching at CC. We have started watching a friend's little boy. Scott starts work next week...etc. etc. etc.
I mainly want to write about Ada starting school, of course, so I will probably be back with a post about that tomorrow. So much for my list, right?
Overall, we are feeling very, very thankful, and very, very taken care of by God. Again, this is not how we would have "written our story," but we can feel God directing our steps at every turn. Praise Him. Over and over, praise Him!!
