coming soon to a Texas town near you
We are in a flurry of emotions over here. I am so excited to be headed closer to family- to be able to hop into the car and drive a few hours to see my parents or to hope into the car and drive 25 minutes to see Adam's parents (Seriously, they live in a suburb of Ft. Worth)! This is amazing to me- for my kids to grow up near their grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins (all in Austin, TX).
I have sad emotions, too. Some of my dearest friends live here in Erie and we have had a really wonderful four years. I can't dwell on those emotions right now, though. I can't even go there- I will really, really miss my girls.
But, alongside the happy news: Fort Worth peeps, thank you for reaching out to us! Lots of alumni from our school (alumnus? alumna?) are in the area and we so appreciate the help and advice and are asking for more! In chapter 20 of Proverbs, it says that when you are making plans, to seek advice. That is us, right now. We are looking for a rental home somewhat near the hospital (10-15 minute drive max). We have some friends in the Keller area but we're thinking that might be a bit far away, especially for Adam's first year doctoring schedule.
Also, do you use the Y? (We love the Y up here.) Does your kid go to a mothers' day out a couple of mornings a week? Church? Parks? THANK YOU for your enthusiasm. We feel cared for & loved and are looking forward to our new adventure in Texas!
