A Good Start

Our official first Sunday at Ames Baptist Church was a great day.  We met so many great folks and had a great time.  We got to sleep in our new house for the first time.  It was quite strange really, we've gotten so used to only having one door that I kept thinking, did I lock both the FRONT and BACK door?  Oh, people, can I tell you how happy we are to have life size kitchen, a real fridge, a dishwasher, our own washing machine and dryer . . . AND MORE THAN ONE BATH ROOM!

It's great little place that in no time we'll make our cozy little home.

We're going to have little place tilled up for a garden . . . yep, that's what I said, a garden. Can't wait!

Also, "for the first time in my life I can proudly say that I am an American." Oh wait, that's not what I said, that's what our First La-- . . . oh never mind. :)  Anywho, I am proud to say that  "I have a yard." A man ought to have a yard to take care of.  And we have one. . .sweet.  Now Whit will just have  to see if her hubby can handle it . . . :)

Pictures of the empty house to come . . . to be followed later by pictures of our house with furnishings.

We move our stuff in this weekend, we'd appreciate prayers for safe travel.

locking the door???

and you might think of adopting an 11 yr old boy when it gets to be about 105 and you are still needing to get the yard taken care of!

Enjoy the garden, the ground is fertile. You may get some random watermelons or pumpkins...
