Well, we have gotten the majority of our worldly belongings from the farm to our new house in town after two trips with a trailer. We then welcomed four houseguests from AZ for 9 days, and today is the first 'normal' day in awhile. That being said, we still have unpacking, sorting, and donations to be done, but all in all, we are getting there.

I am grateful to be in town for many reasons, though we will miss aspects of our country life. We can walk and bicycle nearly everywhere, including church, because as it always is after a move, funds are exhausted, and this makes more things possible. Plus, we have fun being pedestrian and riding about. I hope that when our finances recover, we will continue this trend, which is my plan!

We had a lovely time with our houseguests, one of whom is my Goddaughter. The kids got along as though they are siblings and we grown people chatted and laughed a lot. We were one seat short in our SUV, so we had to be creative for church with some shuttling, but we walked plenty and chatted along the way, including to the grower's market! We hope to be seeing much more of them in the near future.

We have been making it to church, glory to God! We have been to many services since we have made this move and I have noticed a difference in the girls' attitudes. There is always a fluctuation with changes, but it is nice to see that the regularity and predictability of the services, as well as, prayers, seem to be settling them well.

Time will tell how all goes, but we are looking forward to being close to our town and church communities as we enter into the cooler, darker days ahead.

Ha! Yes, H, I am sure we will work that plan as soon as we can find time.

It looks like things are good here and I pray they continue to offer blessings of all kinds!
