Of Late

I tried to think of a spiffy title, but i failed. this is all i've got. sorry.

(disclaimer-this is filled with just very random things so read at your own risk)

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 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.

Hey Magen,

A. Great pic's!! looks like you had a ton of fun
B. Ok, so the part about you fitting into the city and being from the south...I always want to make a comment about Eli's clothes, but never knew how to b/c I didn't want to come across as rude. But now that you explained that what he wears is a "southern" thing - that makes so much sense!! :) of course, he always does look cute. but i think Jamie would shoot me if I ever put B in one of those outfits!! :)
C. You're coming to Colorado in October!?! Um, hello!? Where at? We totally want to see you guys while you're here. And you're WELCOME to stay with us in our house!
D. Way to go on the 1/2. I wanted to sign up for a 1/2 but I know I won't be ready in time (we have the Denver full/half marathon in Oct as well) - maybe I'll do the 10K.
