Yesterday morning I woke up at 5:30 to the sound of Andrew, coughing violently. As it turns out, it was also Elijah. Not sure where they got it from, but now they have fevers too. Anyway, Greg was at work, of course, and I had to get out of the house, so we went to the grocery store, which is right down the street. As soon as I put the little guys in the "car cart", there were smiles all around, and people kept stopping to say hello. This may have been why:
Do ya think?
Since moving here, I've slowed down with my posting. To those of you who have sent me emails, I apologize that I'm terrible with timely responses. I am trying to catch up, and will get back to you (Alicia!!) as soon as possible.
Here is a slice of our lives since moving to GA in the first week of October.
The first Sunday we were here, we started going to this big church near us (well, big for NY state -- about 500 people).
Within two weeks, I was leading the worship for Wednesday nights.
Soon after, I was asked to be on the worship team on Sunday mornings as a vocalist, and Greg started running sound for their second Sunday service.
A few weeks after that, I was asked to direct the music (and choose the songs) for the Christmas play, and Greg was asked to volunteer as sound guy.
I started a moms of preschoolers/babies group (not MOPS, but same idea, just independant), and we meet at least twice a week for playgroup and Bible study.
Since getting back from Christmas vacation, I've joined a gym with two of my friends, and we work out almost every morning. Free childcare, and we're all getting back into shape!
Also, besides knitting (of course for all the Christmas gifts this year!) and crocheting, which I've mentioned before, I've also taken up spinning and dying my own yarn. Don't believe me? Check here. Yes, I'm obsessed, but it's amazing.
I'm going to try to post more (although I didn't make any New Year's resolutions!!), but since I've been neglecting this blog so much, I just wanted to let you all know why. Our lives are great, but busy! We love what we're doing, and it would be so cool if we had more hours in the day to get even more of everything done. We say "no" to suggested obligations all the time, so imagine how much more could have been on this list! This, believe it or not, is our simplified life.
