Moving: Dog Edition

We moved here with our two Cockers, Annie and Cooper. They are adjusting really well to the move. We drove the 10 hours wee in the morning to get here. We put them in back of the SUV and then I saw a little place where we could all lay down so that's how we spent most of the trip.

We arrived on a Sunday and our belongings didn't come until Monday so the dogs had free run of the house. I think they were happy Joe was back with us that they didn't care where they were. This house has lots of room to run and Annie loves the backyard! The only problem is they can escape if they really wanted to so we have to stand there are watch them and there is only so many times you can watch her smell the same stick!

We talked them 2 1/2 miles to church this week so they could scope our the neighborhood more and the city. They loved it! So in case you were wondering, our kids are doing great!

Virginia is for Lovers!

So we are all moved here and getting settled. The only boxes that are left were the misc boxes and I am putting those off for awhile. I was just saying last night to Joe that this is starting to feel like home to us.

I must admit I had plenty of emotions about moving. When we first decided that we were going to look for another church, my immediate reaction was excitement. We knew we were going to look outside of Indiana so I was so ready for an adventure. Fast forward to when we made the decision, I felt a lot of other things too. We have a house in Indiana, I have a job I really liked and family was only a couple of hours away. We were going to place where we know no one!

But I am so thankful that God is steady when our emotions are not. He gave us peace in our unsteadiness. He promised to never leave me or forsake me! We had done this before and our home in North Vernon became home to us so I knew it would happen again. These last few days have helped settle my feelings and I know we are following God.

I am still looking for a job and trusting God in those circumstances. I told Joe that I was going to be a housewife and then he started looking for jobs for me!

We are starting to love our church! Joe is planning practically a year in advance and keeps himself really busy. We finally got internet this week so I hope to be able to blog more about our life here.

Here is our house we are renting!
