Few emotions rival feeling a healthy pride in your kids. Watching them navigate this big move we all just made, has left me nearly bursting with it.
When we sold our home without a new one to move into, those three kids sailed out into the vast unknown right along with me and Jonathan. We didn't have firm answers to their questions about where we would be moving...where or when they'd go to school...how far away they'd be from Texas and their beloved Texas Rangers....we just honestly didn't know. And those three amazed me. There were questions and fears that sprung up, certainly, but they had a (you guessed it) child-like faith that their Mom and Dad knew what was best. They accepted our assurances that everything would eventually work out for their good, and accepted the challenge to enjoy the adventure in the meantime.
People. That'll preach.
They look so brave (and precious!)
Were you at Ikea? I always get lost and cranky when I try to go to Ikea. Then I have to come home and put together all the junk . . . makes me a little cranky now just thinking about it.
Let's try to get together sometime soon. Let us know when you guys are feeling more settled.
Jessica I had TOTALLY BEEN SHOPPING AT IKEA! That place is both wonderful and awful.
