arrived


Quick update: We have arrived in Houston, TX! Our apartment lease doesn't start until tomorrow, so we are staying with Chris's family tonight. The girls have made themselves quite at home with "Aunt Pam" and 12 year old "Cousin Shelby." Part of the reason they're so into them may be because of the brand new jump rope, 'skip it,' and sidewalk chalk they bought them! There is an "Uncle Carroll" and a "Cousin Trey"and a "Cousin Ryan" as well, but they're much more interested in the 12 year old girl and aunt! I put "aunt" & "uncle" in quotes because Carroll is actually Chris's dad's 1st cousin so who knows how exactly that makes these particular family members related to my kids, but they are family and that's what's important!
Chris & I are going to the apartment tomorrow and hopefully meeting the movers to unpack our stuff. I hope to sleep in our new place tomorrow night!!!!!!!
Things are going well, but I am missing my South Carolina friends. My cell phone is getting a good work-out!
More later from the Lone Star State........

The pictures of the girls are so cute! I'm so excited that you are there and pray that today will be a good day with the movers. I pray you'll settle in more quickly than you imagined. I pray that you will find Texas the home of your heart, as that's the way it should feel when you're in God's will. We miss you already!
