Happenings

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. It's not like there is a ton going on but I just haven't taken the time to write it down. We are all doing pretty good. We have "settled" in about as much as we are going to for now. We have adjusted fairly well. I had one small break down the other evening. It hit me that night that I didn't have any friends here and since we are not in a perminent place I will not really get the chance to make friends any time soon. But after Matt and I talked I felt better. I know this was the right decision for us and I also know that it would be difficult at first. I am doing much better and just keep focused on the positives and get out as much as I can.

This past weekend we celebrated Ian's birthday with the family. We all met at the Nashville Zoo and had a great time. We have a membership here so we will be going quiet often. It is really neat they way they have it set up. The areas are set up like the natural habitat and you get real close to the animals. There is a ton of room that they will be building things in over the next 5 years. I am excited to go back. After the zoo we took Matts' family over to Vandy to let them see the campus and where he worked. Then it was off to Oprey Mills for the Rainforest Cafe. It was fun and the kids loved it. Riley could have cared less about it, but the boys were running around looking at all the animals there. Caleb was not to fond of the Hippo at the entrance of the restraunt. He was fine tilll it started grunting and moving. It freaked him out a little. After we got home he was asking to go back and touch it. :)

Papa found another turtle for the boys. We named this one Stumpy since it only had 3 legs. He was still a baby so we are unsure if he was born that way or was hurt. The boys had fun watching him and trying to get him to eat. But in the end the boys asked to let him go. I think once we get a house we are going to get the boys a turtle. They seem to like them so much.

Riley now has a tooth! Her first one broke through yesterday . It is the bottom right if you are looking at her. She is growing so fast. She has been trying to get on her knees and if there is somting behind her she is successful. Other wise she assumes the push-up position. She has gotten real good at going in reverse. We find her under the ottoman and the table all the time. And I must say- Riley is definatly a Daddys girl! She will follow him with her eyes everywhere he goes. She screaches for him to look at her and then smiles when he does.

This weekend we are heading up to KY for a visit with the fam. Since it is a long weekend it is the perfect opportunity to visit. Heather is such a cute prego woman. She is all belly of course. I can't wait to see that precious baby! Hopefully she will arrive around the end of July.

Well I hope to get some pictures up of the kids soon. I have not been able to find the cord for the camera so I can't download them- But I hope to find it this week and then I will get some up there for you to see. Please continue to pray for our house to sell. We appreciate all the prayers lifted up already! God Bless my friends!

Tell Heather I said Hi when you visit! I hope your house sells soon! I know what you mean about moving to a new place and feeling like you have no friends. That is what happened to me too. But I will tell you it help Heath and I grow closer together! Keep your chin up! God has a plan!

Marie,
I feel your pain, from across the continents. It is hard not to feel really alone sometimes. But I will be praying that God will bring you some precious new friends, even in the interim. It can be really hard, I know, but just remember that I am sure it took awhile for NLR to feel like home too, this new home will feel like home too someday. I promise. Our love to you and your crew :)
