In Limbo

I wanted to post quickly before we leave for Pennsylvania tomorrow because I'm pretty sure I won't have regular internet access once we're there.

We're here in Columbus! Our house is an amazing blessing from God. We feel like we have so much space, and we're loving the backyard. We are thankful and the kids are soooooo happy and are running free!

Of course, we don't really feel like we're here for real yet because we're leaving tomorrow for our 3-week stint at basketball camp, so that's where the "In Limbo" title comes from. We have a lot to do when we get back--Mark needs a job, we start the church hunt, I need some girlfriends... I know this will all come one step at a time, so until we have to think about those things, we plan to enjoy our time in Clarks Summit. We're excited to see old friends, to be at Heritage again, and to spend time on our beautiful and peaceful BBC campus.

See you in Mayberry, Abby!

To Laugh With Old Friends

Last night, Gretchen, Lisa, Abby, Angela and I went out for coffee. For those of you who don't know, these are my Minnesota friends who are originally from Pennsylvania--we all go way back. Lisa wanted me to see her favorite coffee place before I move away, and it turned into a kind of last hurrah for me to be with my girlfriends here. We had so much fun. We talked the night away and laughed a lot. I will miss that. I will miss being with friends who I've known for years and who know me so well, who know my history, who know my extended family members' names, who know my likes and dislikes, and who know my spirit. As exciting as this move is for our family, I'm sad to leave these friends who love us and who have supported us in our adventures. Thanks for a great night, guys--I'm so glad we have this picture!
