We made it!

After spending some awesome time with our friends Tim, Nicole, and Caden, we made it to Jacksonville Beach! We were welcomed by a group of 15-20 people from Bethlehem ready to unload our truck. John and his dad did a great job loading it, and it took them about 7 hours. Well, the group from Bethlehem unloaded it in 22 minutes! It was awesome!

We have been so incredibly blessed by the people here and are so thankful. They filled our cupboards with food, and we keep finding tons of diapers, paper towels, lotion, etc around the house as gifts to us. Not to mention many many gift cards to the local grocery stores and popular restaurants. And if they hadn't gifted us enough, they bought us both new beach cruiser bikes! We've already tested them out, and William loves them! He has a seat right behind us :) Moving in and adjusting has been such a breeze. Of course we miss our friends a lot. I'm definitely an extrovert, so being in a new place even with the nicest of acquaintances leaves me a little lonely. But I know we'll make friends soon enough. Just about in time to leave again... sigh... the life of Seminary... ("Seminarians make the worst friends!"-Greg Poppitz)

We're thankful for any time we have with new and old friends, and look forward to what God has in store for us.
