We’re here! It was a long 14 and 1/2 hour drive with our U-Haul towing the Escape, but we played lots of games and took lots of breaks and finally: Home! Shout out to my AMAZING husband; he drove the entire way, didn’t fall asleep at all, entertained me and drove safe! Love that man. It’s still weird for us to know that this is our home (for now). Even though we have everything we own here, it still slightly feels like vacation. I think it will feel more real once we get our own place and a job. For now, we are enjoying being a little lazy, working on running in the thin air, loving on the kiddos (and 3 other adults) that live with us, and organizing all of our stuff. Oddly, for myself, I felt the most at home once our TV was plugged in and we laid in bed to watched a movie. That’s just what we would do lots of nights, so it was familiar.
Thank you to everyone that prayed for us on the way, and while we are here, it shows in our day to day life! I still cannot believe that God brought us to Colorado and we didn’t lose any money, we actually gained money! That is a miracle! “More to come,” He says! We miss everyone! It’s hard, but “trust me,” God says, so that, we will do. We love all of you, but we’re excited to see our Colorado family, and make new friends. It’s like the first day of school! The children we are living with are so freaking cute! The other day one of them jumps out of the car to go to school, her younger brother shouts “Bye, Peyton, make new friends!” He’s four.
Here’s some extra mediocre pictures of us on our way here!
This is everything we have!
We’re home when we’re together
It was so foggy leaving Texas, it was like she didn’t want us to leave 😦
Let’s take selfies!
Jake’s Miley face.
If you don’t stop at Walmart, it’s not a road trip.
Cool trains that looked like a John Mayer album cover
If Mimi were to name a restaurant
This is what 10 hours looks like
See ya Tejas!
We will come back, promise!
Only if some Texans come to us first!
Look how Colorful Colorado is!
Did you expect anything less?
Snow, snow, snow, SNOW!
And that was it!
