Moving On!!!

We are almost done packing, and moving. I think. So far today I have cancelled all of our services, and eaten breakfast. Yes, that is right...not moving too quickly. I have been on the phone with four million different representatives for Verizon. EVERY.SINGLE.DEPARTMENT. And, guess what, they do not offer DSL or FIOS out there. I can not get anything but dial up.

Couldn't make it up if I tried

Haven is something else. That girl has some of the funniest things that come out of her mouth. I have finally started to write them down because I know I will never be able to remember them. I want to be able to remind her of these sayings when she is older...and use them against her if ever given the chance.

The first one that I remembered to write down happened as we were driving down the road the other day. We were listening to Praise Baby and the song "Holy, Holy, Holy" was on and she thought the title was funny and asked why they were singing it. My response was that it was because God is Holy, to which she promptly responded "God isn't Holy, He's God." 'nough said.

Then just last night we were driving home talking about how she couldn't make a difference in the world. We kept telling her that she could make a difference in the world. Only Hannah Montana and God could make a difference in the world. Not sure how the two are related but somewhere in her little mind, this makes perfect sense.

It is finally here!

The last week of Jamie working in Richmond that is. Starting towards the end of this week Jamie will be home for good. Never again will we think it is a good idea to take a job out of this area without all of us going at the same time. Never.
I hope that I don't look back on this last year and regret the decision we made. I want to remember all of the good points that were there. We both grew a great deal. While he lived with Sonya and Kelly he was able to learn so much and see an awesome Christian couple in action. That in itself makes this whole experience worth it. He also got to see the importance of placing his priority and trust in God and not man. Apparently God felt that the only way he would learn that is by sending him away for a year.
We also learned that Candy is not able to live in a different city than us, we need to be close enough to step in when necessary. Thank goodness we were able to learn that during non critical times.
I was able to learn that while it stinks to live without Jamie, in the event that we had to, we could make it. I feel more confident about my mothering skills now than I did before. I can do far more than I would have given myself credit for. I also realized that while I enjoy adult interaction, it is not near as necessary as I would have previously thought.
I am so excited to see what the next year holds in store for us. Amazingly enough, we both became far closer to each other than I would have thought possible since we were basically living in two separate living quarters.
