This week

Well, Kevin made the big announcement here, so I don't have much to say. I'm really excited and really nervous and really anxious and really tired just thinking about what needs to happen in the next several weeks. I'm so proud of Kevin. The amazing people at Fuller have been after him for months. I didn't realize he was in such demand! He's had a few offers come up over the summer, but this one we took seriously. Actually, I told him to apply just so we'd get to go to California for the interview. Little did I think this would be in God's plans for our family. I feel like I'm in a dream. I keep saying everything will be fine in 6 months or so. Anywhoo, we have to sell this house we've made into our home. Please pray that it will sell quickly! I can't keep it clean for more than 5 minutes at a time :)

On Monday, we found out that the parents of the worship leader at my dad's church were killed in a horrific car accident in Ok. Obviously, this news has been devastating for the church and for Monica. Please pray for Monica and her 2 brothers, as they grieve and heal in the weeks to come.

Yesterday, I took Avery and Presley to the dr. McKenna tagged along. After a 45 minute wait, we finally saw the dr. Presley has a sinus infection. Avery has been complaining of stomach pains and a sore throat for weeks now. As the dr. was trying to figure out the cause, she asked a simple question, "Does she worry alot?" That question turned into a 15 minute conversation that ended in a prescription for Prilosec, due to ulcers and/or acid build up. At 6 years old. Hard to believe, but I hope this works. I hate seeing her in pain and she's been complaining for so long now. I hate that she worries. This all started when she started school. I know the next few months are going to be hard for her. They'll be hard for all of us, but I pray God gives her peace and assurance in this transition.

Today, I'm cleaning. Hopefully we'll get some calls on the house this weekend.

Oh, and I'm posting this using my new computer. Macbook Pro, I think. Kevin ordered it on Monday. FedEx brought it to our house yesterday.

I'm so looking forward to tomorrow night. A bunch of our friends and their families are getting together for a bonfire at the Grahams (family friend from college days) It's going to be great and we are going to make some great memories. Hopefully I'll remember to bring the camera.

And so, the real fun begins...

Good Luck Michelle!!! I'll pray for you guys. It got SO old having to live in a spotless show house when ours was on the market. I really feel for you, moving is hard work.
