bekah, signing on.
Oh, Minnesota. There are so many things that I think about being here and everyday is a little bit more 'normal'. Before we left our wonderful family and friends of M-town I was so busy packing and worrying about Isaiah Grace's transition that I didn't have a personal emotion concerning the move. I knew that once i arrived here in MN and got settled I would realize that the sweet familar faces that I love weren't showing up in my life the way they once did. And sure enough about 4 or 5 days after being here I started crying, yep, couldn't stop, just cried.
So now we have lived in our new place for about 2 weeks and a dear friend has moved in down stairs, I am feeling better and more at home. I mean I still tear up when I think of time with the fam and such but I know what we experience here is setting us up for greater things with the Lord. I'm so thankful for the blessing of a supportive husband and the opportunity to take adventures with my best friend (it makes this life SO much more fun). We seariously experience a WHOLE NEW culture here and I don't just mean mid-westerners, but the cultural diversity here is HUGE. There is a huge Somali populationand there are a large number of Indians (people from India, not native-americans... but they represent pretty heavily also). So its a cool town and I look foward to spending some time in the city.
IGN UPDATE: She's amazing... are you suprised? She is loving community life and getting the attention she feels her life deserves:) She has won the hearts of young and old here on campus and parades around waving at everyone she sees (she's practicing for miss america, I guess). There are people from home that she misses when she sees their pics but for the most part she has embraced her new life and is loving it. There are 4 kids here in our building ranging in ages from 12 months to 2 1/2 years, so the girl has friends all around. She's walking around like a wild woman and learning how to make this whole "shoe-wearing' thing work. Basicly, she's perfect!
Well I better get a move on... i think I'm going to blog more in the future!
