First Days

We are embracing first days around here.

We are officially in our new home.
Today was officially Brian's first day at work.

We are so overwhelmed with love, gratitude, food, family, names and faces of new friends, humidity, moving boxes, transition, and the need for more magnets for the fridge. (Thank goodness the need to draw did not get lost in the move. Like our telephone and answering machine did):

All good things. Very, very good things.

We had a quick photo opp before the Early Service today, dressed in our Sunday best including Pirates of the Caribbean tattos, nike socks, cowgirl boots, clip-on ties and a seersucker coat.
You should have seen what Brian and I wore. Har.

More soon, once I find my brain in one of these boxes.
For now, we are just so glad to be here.

I wanted to introduce myself to you this a.m. but it looked quite overwhelming in the fellowship hall for all of you. Just know that we are glad to have you here and hope you are able to get settled into your new life here with ease!

That bottom right photo of Henry and Svea is freaking me out. THEY LOOK LIKE TEENAGERS. Did you guys travel through some black hole on the way to Alabaster?

We miss them, and you.
