we've been in alabama for over a month. perhaps you can tell by these instagram pics, it kinda already feels like home. on the other hand, we're all feeling a little displaced and trying to get our footing here. hope glimmers above the gloom of leaving north dakota comfort, family and routine. days have have been long and sometimes sad, but also brimming with excitement and fun over new discoveries as we attempt to lay down our roots. it's difficult though, to lay roots in one place when you feel like they're still planted elsewhere. we're adjusting. and it's more fun than it sounds maybe? i've grown accustomed to making adjustments, and that doesn't at all mean i love the process, like i love pizza or the beach. but i love it still. stretching with my family, learning more to trust god and not myself is always good. amen.
our laptop has been a real fickle piece of work. it's working tonight, so i'm checking in. to say i'm still here, and that i probably have a lot to say. as my technology allows, of course.
in a few weeks, elijah begins kindergarten. and that, my friends, is a whole 'nother adjustment. i'm already weeping and we haven't even bought school supplies yet. how is he old enough for all day kinder. how? anyway, that time away will breed lots of blogging and shop time, i hope. i'm hungry for connecting here again and sharing some work that's been happening in me. plenty of shaking up in my heart and soul, much like our big move across the country!
anyway. hello, happy weekend! XO
