Good Morning from Colorado Springs. I have been resisting blogging since we have arrived. I think I feel a little disconnected from the real world! My email acct was deactivated and that has really messed me up.Its funny how reliant we are on things like that. It has been good for me though...not checking my email every 10 minutes...kind of feels like vacation.

We have been staying with one of my best friends since we got here. This has been so good for me. I have really forgotten what it was like to have a friend to just live daily life with. Although it has been crazy at times and even a little stressful, it just feels right. Shawn's mom and dad kept Josh for the first 2 nights. Jason stayed with his cousin for the night. It was a very nice break!

After our flight out here being delayed and then canceled, we were finally rerouted on a different airline on a direct flight to Denver. We arrived here around 9pm thursday. Shawn left Friday afternoon and ended up with a delayed flight in Texas. He finally made it home around 12:30 Saturday morning. He got up a few hours later packed the house and loaded the truck with friends. They were able to leave a day early so they are almost here!!!! They should be here by dinner time.

I am very happy that they will be here boys are really missing their daddy. Jon has cried every night. He has thrown a lovely fit. I know it is because he misses his daddy. Its been a while since he has been gone this long.

True to our past experiences, sickness has hit. Josh has had a fever for the past day. My friend's little girl has a fever too. I am hoping it goes no further and no one else gets it. But I guess I better get busy finding a doctor!

Well, that's just a little update...we are all here and alive! Really we are just having a good time playing with new friends and living in this unreal sense of belonging. It feels good to know that you are in the center of God's will.

Hey Kelly and family,

I'm glad to hear that you made it to Colorado safely. I was reading through your post and I completely know what it feels like to not have friends nearby. We live a pretty quiet existence around here. I have people at church that I talk to, but no one I feel close to. We are moving to a new house this fall, and I hope that it will be more family friendly and that we will be able to make some good christian friends.

It was great hearing from you and I'm so glad that I found your blog online. Keep in touch! Love and blessings to you and yours.

Your Sister,
Sarah Marie
