God continues to bless us with opportunities to share our passion for serving Him in France & spreading the Gospel. We are confident in His timing.
I feel like life is starting to get back to "normal" which is good. A routine is always a fantastic idea. Although it was really nice to break away and fly by the seat of our pants for a little while.
School for Daniel starts next week and I think I am more excited for him than he is (okay probably not but I am all giddy). He has a heavy load this semester, but I know he can do it. I hope to get involved (more than I did last semester) in the wives club they have for seminary students.
This past Wednesday & Thursday we had our friends in town. We had such a delightful time eating our little hearts out & enjoying the sites & sounds of a BIG city. I am not sure I have laughed that hard in a while.
We've been in this new place for 8 months now and I have been trying to express how I feel about this place. Well maybe I should restate that...how this place feel about us (southerners). BUT instead of me explaining this, I came across a blog when I was blog hopping (come on you know you do it...don't deny it). She articulated this feeling almost exactly. No I don't know her, but I can completely relate to how she feels. Each Sunday D & I take E to the nursery. We get stares and occasional we get the "what is he wearing" comment. He is a southern boy in his smocked bubble suits/jon jon's or his pilgram collars with of course monogramming. There is a sweet lady at our church that always complements on the smocking (because she smocks) and says "oh you are from the south. i want to go to see how all the little kiddo's dress." In saying all this, I really do like it here. I just sometimes feel out of place.
E will be one soon. We had his BIG party while we were in the south, so we will just do something small here. I seriously can't get enough of him!
Daniel & I are signing up (before it gets full) for a half marathon at the end of October. We are both PUMPED about this. As you may remember (or maybe not) we were training for a full, but when we went to sign up, it had already filled :( we were both really bummed to say the least and backed off on running. We are back now and looking forward to this half. I will keep you posted on our progress.
My sister and her husband moved to Florida this past weekend. I am really excited about their new adventure of running two businesses. I know they are excited about it too.
D, E & I will be heading to Colorado at the end of October. Our good friends are getting married & we are both in the wedding!!
Okay I feel like I am rambling, so I guess that's all for tonight.
