the adventure

this week has been none other than the adventure of the hubbs and my lives...and it's not going to get any less exciting for the next two weeks...but lots of love was found

{Our dear friends Tyler and Roxie not only opened their home to us and helped us move everything into our moving van, Roxie cleaned our entire apartment for us while I was working...this spoke so much love to me...I don't know how we could ever really thank them...ever}

{My last day of work was our annual special was beautiful...and it was nice to say good bye to the people that I have spent the last 2 years working beside while we all looked so snazzy.  I really didn't know  what I wanted to give them as a Thank You present for the last 2 years...I thought about it a long time and decided I would give them each a different kind of that looked like their personality/style...and I told them when they opened them that they were to hang in their home...and every time they looked at them they should remember that I thank God for the time we had.  It was perfect, and I think they all know how much I love them}

Arkansas is our next stop for the weekend, and then its on to Pennsylvania...where we will move into our group home with our boys and I will start orientation at school on the same day...offff course

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth


  1. God speed, sweet girl. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Remember my life-blessing for you (and Jon, too, now):

    "I will not wish thee riches, nor the glow of greatness,but that wherever thou go some weary heart shall gladden at thy smile,
    or shadowed life know sunshine for a while.
    and so thy path shall be a track of light,
    like angels' footsteps passing through the night."

    *Inscription, words on a church wall in Upwaltham, England*

    I love you,

  2. We made will we make it?
