We're Moving

Yup it's true. Clubhouse Drive will be our humble abode no longer. For quite some time now we've been talking, praying, discussing, lamenting, dreaming over some pretty exciting life changes. It is now public and official. Eric has been accepted at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, KY for this fall, so our house is for sale, we're looking for a home to rent in Wilmore, and we have resigned from Brown's Chapel. We hope to move in July if our house sells. We will certainly our dear friends here and our Brown's Chapel family, but we definitely feel burdened to move on.

The absence of posts during the last month and a half can be partially attributed to the fact that we've been packing and making repairs. This house is going to look better the day we sell it than it ever looked the entire time we lived here. We spread 3 cubic yard of mulch on Wednesday, we replaced the garage door, painted the window boxes and trim, and there is still a list to complete for the next family moving in. Anyway, this all seems pretty boring and trivial after reading about Bethany's trip to Cuba.

Isaiah's first birthday party is tomorrow, so we're going to celebrate with the cousins. I'll try to post pictures soon, but no promises. I still haven't been able to successfully post pictures from the Mac at home. Safari quits every time I try to import a picture. Again... technical advice anyone?

Although I knew about it, I am so excited for you all and in seeing what God is calling you to in the next few years. Like I said, sem life is fun, crazy, and challenging. Eric AND you will both be challenged by what he is learning. Be vulnerable to what God has to teach you during this time. Let me know if you all need anything!

We have some good friends at Asbury: Jeremy and Andrea Summers. You will have to look them up. :) Oh, and Jim is jealous - maybe we will end up there someday.

Jim asked if you had tried to uninstall Safari and then reinstall it. That might work.

Andrea and I have been emailing. We knew each other a little in college and Jeremy was in Josh's wedding, so we're connected a little. It does feel better knowing at least one other couple there. You and Jim definitely seem like the seminary type- if there is such a thing. It wouldn't surprise me at all if you ended up there. We decided that doing it while the kids were young was advantageous since we're not taking them away from schools or friends yet, and Elijah will only be in 1st grade when Eric finishes.

I haven't tried uninstalling Safari. Good advice.
