We made it to Texas and it has been non-stop since we got here! I have SOO many pictures and am sad I can't put any on here because I packed my connections to the computer so I will just fill everyone in.
Lucy went to VBS the week before we left to come down here and had a wonderful time! She was sad when it was over because she had so much fun seeing all her friends before we left.
We drove down here on Sat. and went right over to Nick's uncles house where his family was there to welcome us... THANK GOD FOR FAMILY!!!
We grilled there...which was SO NICE because we are done eating out. AH! I never thought I would say that! I actually miss not having a stove and grill!!! We are living out of a hotel room and I guess I need to appreciate the fact that we have each other and roof over our heads...and AIR!! We went and looked at 7 houses yesterday just to rent and we found 2! We are still waiting to hear back so hopefully this weekend we will have our OWN bedrooms! Our house is packed into a storage unit and I can't wait to open each box. It will be like Christmas....especially all our things from Germany! We haven't seen that stuff since the middle of May! Lucy can't wait to get Ruthie...the packers were too fast and packed her. There is an American Girl store in Dallas and I PROMISED I would take her there as soon as we find Ruthie. AHHH. The good thing is this is only temporary:)
We bought a VW beetle! After being in Germany we love those VWs!!! It sure is a change driving a little beetle around and leaving our "bus" parked!!! It sure is fun to have a little car to cruise around in.
Other than that...we are ready for school to start and get back to some normal lifestyle!!!
We are doing well and glad we are here.
If anyone wants to come and visit when it's cold up there...we are here and would LOVE to have company.
Take care and hopefully I can put some pictures up next week when we get unpacked!!!
We love you all and already miss Iowa!
