Looking back...

Today is Tuesday, September 6th and I have been doing a bit of reflection this morning.  Lili is home with me today...a bit of a cold...the sudden chill here in MO isn't helping.  We decided to hit up the library for some books to read and movies to watch while we chill out together today.  
It's been quite a year and I am liking where we have ended up. 
The kiddos also seem to be very happy.  Its amazing how much that matters.  I didn't realize how much stress I was carrying last year just because I knew the kiddos were unhappy.  It's so much different now.  Their schools are wonderful, the teachers are amazing, they all have lots of friends and they are getting involved.  Lili is joining the G.Scouts, Zander will be doing sports (not sure which yet), and Katia is in Yearbook, Orchestra and Student Council.  Go Kids!
I have already gotten acquainted with several women from Lili's class mostly but will soon be active with the PTO's.  So far, the minute I say we are new here the conversation gets started and everyone is so excited to share whatever they feel I need to know.  I LOVE IT!
C's job is constantly keeping him busy and that is a great thing.  He loves the challenge and feels he can really be a great asset to the company. We don't get to see him a lot during the week but at least we are all together at night and not in 2 separate states. 
Sometimes when things seem hopeless you just have to keep plugging away.  We did that.  It was tough at times but we did it.  Things are not always perfect, some decisions are not always the best but you can't throw in the towel and give up.  I am proud of us!  We did it and I am thankful!

Happy First week of September!

We know it was tough but we also knew you'd make it just fine. We're very proud of you all!

Remember, too, that a lot of prayers were going up on your behalf by a lot of people. Never underestimate the power of the Lord.
