The long list of "Moving In To Do's," is dwindling and we're starting to feel at home. Elle's room is all finished. Well, kind of. I spent a couple weeks getting it just right, but as soon as I finished, I woke up to 1/2 the wall decals on the floor. Such is life. There is now a bare wall in her room, and I'm open to suggestions. : )
Things at church are going well. Our leadership has recently decided to make a defined separation between "ministry" and "community." Basically, anyone can attend and be involved in a ministry, but you need to be a member to be in community. So, I'll have to complete all the membership classes before I can get into a community group. Being out of fellowship is beginning to take a toll on me, but at least this is a short term circumstance.
Elle is doing well. My roommate Bridget is always amazed at her capacity to reason and problem solve. She's had a cold the past two weeks, but I think she's finally making a recovery. She continues to be excited to go to daycare and happy when I pick her up; I am thankful for these things.
Life has been a bit on the stressful side, as the "new" wears off and the "real" sets in. There is always a new reason to lean into the great sufficiency of Christ and depend on His grace.
Love to you all. Enjoy the pics.
