a month sure goes by fast, doesn’t it?
at least it seems that way to me with all that has happened in our lives in that time span.
there is much i could write, many things i would like to blog about.
but for now, i’m just going to recap through my instagram pictures and words and add in a few other photos from this past month.
i’ve been using the hashtag #thisisournewbeginning on Instagram, and it seems to also be a fitting title for this brief post.
I’ve never cried at the sight of a semi truck and trailer before today. Seeing this park in front of our house to be loaded with all our belongings was another one of those ‘we are actually doing this?!’ moments. And i cry because it’s sad to go. But we are supposed to and in that we are at rest and know Peace.
When all your friends gather and help you load your entire household, and you watch your life flash before your eyes, and you realize that you surely have been given forever friends, and you come back in to an empty house, and you cry big tears for all that has been and all that will be. Yes. This has been that day.
The plains ahead of us, and all our worldly goods behind us with our friends. Almost there.
Welcome to Kansas sunset. A view i will not tire of. And, our friends in the semi cruising toward my parents upon our arrival on Sunday, March 9th.
Whereever they are, we are home. This is where we are living for now. It is a somewhat temporary home for us, but one we are really enjoying. The backyard is so very much fun for the kiddos and the house is more than adequate and enjoyable for all of us. Plus, there is a playground just across the back alley from our house.
You know you are in the west when the Main Street is a dirt road and the only traffic light is a blinking light.
Running this afternoon on dirt roads, and this along the way. Yep:#thisisournewbeginning.
This morning these two very brave souls went off to a new school. I am so proud of them for their resolve, and their (slightly anxious) excitement.
And, i will sum up this post with this picture containing words that ring true for me, for us in this new beginning….
i hope to be back soon with more.
