Officially official (its been a while... sorry)

This will be the two younger boys' room in the parsonage.
This is the living room; I'm thinking about keeping the tables and chairs. :)
We will have a new home. Relief. Excitement. Anxiety. Nervousness. Adventure. All of it, all wrapped up together. Mostly it just feels really good to have direction- to know where the boys will go to elementary school in the fall, to know where we'll live, and just to know.

Now comes the hard part, preparing to leave. I love my people here, and I love knowing where to get a free muffin with coffee before 8am, how to get fresh vegetables all summer long, where the discount bread store is and who to call if I need... anything.

Keymar, Maryland. That's where we're headed and we're excited.
But that's all I can write because there's a lump in my throat for all we'll leave behind.

Congrats to you all Erin! Must be exciting and strange to be finally leaving Wilmore. Your presence and family will be missed...
It looks like you'll have some nice space in the new house! Happy for you all!

The tables and chairs in the living room will be great for card game nights! ha!

Seriously, there is a lump in my throat when I think of you leaving. The normalcy in Wilmore is changing for me too. I'm not too comfortable with that. ;) I love knowing that your fam is around here if we need you or if we need a little fun in our life. It won't be the same without you.

So happy, though, that you have direction. I know that is one thing that DOES feel good.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
