What a long few days! So much has been going on that I can't think of where to start.
Well, I guess you know that we're moving...well, actually we've moved. I am sitting here, in our hotel in Illinois, typing on the computer.:)
It all seems so unreal, that we're actually here, and most likely never to see our "home" again.
Christa's bridal shower went beautifully, and ended in many tears and hugs. It was so wonderful that we were able to see a lot of our friends and relatives before we left for the great land of Lincoln. ;) We're going to miss our Texas friends so very much...but it is comforting to know that we are going to have a whole new group of friends up here!
After the shower we made our way back home to clear up all the things that the movers had left (the things that we were putting in our trailer.). As I ran my hand along the bare walls of my home, and looked about at the great empty rooms...the tears came to my eyes. This place was my home. I grew up here. I have thousands of memories from this place. I've lived here eight years of my life. This is the place that I love. This place is....home. But I knew that it was time to move on. So after shedding many a tear we left the house that we've known to move on to where God has called us...to Illinois.
But, for your information, we still will be Astros fans, we will still say "y'all" and we will still sing "Dixie" when we cross the Abraham Lincoln bridge...so there. :)
Illinois is so beautiful right now. And the weather is cool and the air is crisp and clean, and I'm ready to start our new life.
The realtor took us to look at some houses today...which was fun. We're hoping to move into a home soon since we don't want to live in a hotel forever. :)
Well, I'm off to bed, it's very late. I'll try to update some more tommorow. (If there is anything to update about. :D)
