Settling in

We have been in Manhattan for a month, and life is going well. Azrael and Jordan have settled into their new school, Danica enjoys time with her new daycare lady, Chris is knocking ‘em dead at Dillons with his seafood manager skills.

As for myself, I am really enjoying my new position at Farm Bureau as a customer service representative. I was concerned for some time that I would regret taking this position, as I’ve had bad experience working at a call center before, but so far work is going well.

Our apartment is quite a bit smaller than our previous home, but we’re making it work, and making improvements through the property management company we’re renting from. Now that Danica sleeps on the bottom bunk of her and Jordan’s bunk bed, we don’t need to worry about room for the crib anymore. She is getting to be a big girl!

Azrael is in orchestra, playing the violin, and in choir. Jordan is in first grade, and while there are stumbling blocks (she’s, oh, a bit stubborn), she’s enjoying school.

Manhattan seems less hectic than Lawrence did. Perhaps it’s because it’s a smaller town, and more spread out. Perhaps it is me who is less hectic, less stressed. We’ve found a new church home, complete with hand bell choir and Stephen Ministry.

Life is good! Praise God!

It’s official


We are moving to the Manhattan area. Both Chris and I have gotten well-paying jobs in Manhattan, so we are pulling up stakes here and heading west.

We will all miss Lawrence. It’s been our home for nearly 13 years; all three of our girls were born here. It’s a wonderful place, which is why it’s good that we’ll only be about 90 minutes away, so we can visit from time to time.

In the meantime, we look forward to the next step that God has prepared for us on our journey. Onward!
