July 4th and other updates...

Things have been busy around here with the unpacking. We're making progress but I'm just so indecisive and we have so much junk that I can't seem to part with. I'm a keeper and a saver I always have been. I have all of the cards from my wedding, I probably don't need to keep those and yet 8 years later they've moved around with us... we'll get it unpacked at some point.

Yesterday, we had a very mellow 4th. I think everything just kind of caught up with me because I spent most of the day in bed with a migraine headache. Luckily, by the evening I was feeling well enough to go out and we went to visit with some new friends of ours in a nearby city.

They're a clergy couple and have two young kids we had a really great time and I hope to do more with them in the future.

It's interesting because we were live fireworks are legal so the city didn't really do anything. Instead people in the neighborhood were setting off their own. So we sat in the driveway and watched. Eli & Emerson were entertained for about 2 minutes before they decided they would rather run around. After all it's pretty exciting to be outside in the dark.

(The skunk Eli is holding is his "puppy" nothing we say will convince him otherwise).

On the work front my first Sunday went well. Eli turned off the speakers at one point in the middle of a song but everyone just thought he was really cute. I was worried that Emerson would freak out and want me to hold her during the service but she did really well sitting in the pew and then they went to Sunday School, which is kind of hilarious to me since they're only 2.

The sunday school teacher was so excited to have them go. I told her to not expect much from them, since they're 2. They did great though and after the service Emerson brought me to the sunday school room, showed me her glue stick and told me to "sit". Funny girl.

We're settling in, but we still don't quite have a routine down of how our days will go. I suppose that will come with time.
