wow, it's been a while

it has been a long time since i have posted. life has just been a little crazy. and it still is. we are trying to figure out how to do life and be a family in another country. another culture. all whilst living with a different set of parents. it's great to be with my parents, but hard all at the same time.

america is wonderful. we are all enjoying being here. but america is different. and the change is hard. harder than i thought.

maybe that is why i dont have a lot to say at the moment. i am still processing. and playing. and seeing old friends. going to arkansas. and texas. and six flags. and unpacking the 42 boxes that arrived.

life is full. and scary and unknown. but good.

Rhys' green card arrived (woo hoo) so that is one GIANT weight off of our shoulders. He has to carry it with him at all times. Normally that doesnt pose any problems. When you go to six flags and lose your purse which has the green card in it? problem. how do you call department of homeland security again? life is full, to say the least. (we found the bag in the end! praise jesus)

learning to live in the unknown is something my little family has been practicing for quite a while now. since landing on american soil i have gone through lots of phases relating to the unknown. embracing it as an adventure. despising it. fearing it. loathing it. and right back around to loving the spontaneity and adventure.

benefit to no job? rhys and i have lots of time to check out thrift stores and estate sales for our $50 Rule to furnish the house. and its been really fun. we already have some great buys. I will post before and after pictures soon. but downfall to no job is we are still waiting. still unknown on when we can have our own space. be just the 3 of us (and eventually more!)

we shall see where we are in another week, but for now we are here. and still adjusting. looking and praying for jobs and hanging out with family. life is full.

So minus the part about moving to another country, I am SO right there with you. Still no job for Sean... and its going on 8 months now. Living with parents is definitely a blessing but a bigger challenge than I anticipated. Daily, I run that gamut from angry and bitter to thankful and hopeful. I love your perspective on this season of your life. Thanks for sharing!
