Galatians 6:9

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

Colossians 1:10

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10

Wait, you're what?

We're in the business of raising autonomous adults NOT children here!

Home sweet home.

We've started to settle into life back in MN, just in time to uproot ourselves again and go spend 3 months visiting Daddy. Such is life. We bought a townhouse back in mid August. We had to wait nearly a month after moving into our home to receive all of our household goods that were in various places (some flown from Korea, others shipped from Korea and still others in storage in AL). The stuff in storage in AL took the longest to get here, believe it or not! Upon moving into this place, I have realized just how much stuff we have that we don't need. I had a pile of stuff from storage that I sold, and other stuff waiting to be taken to the thrift store. We bought a 3 bed/3 bath place, and now I realize we could totally have been fine with a 2 bed/2 bath place. I was hoping, and still am, that a certain sister of mine would move in with us. I mean, who wouldn't want to live with an awesome sister- RENT FREE? But old habits are hard to break. Maybe she'll decide to come occupy our place while we're gone. I hope so.

We have found a homeschooling group that is just wonderful. There are even some *gasp, dare I say*, unschoolers too! It's wonderful when you find a group of people that you just fit in with so easily. I know I dislike the process of making new friends. I know that I'm socially awkward too though. To the average person, I swim against the current in so many ways: from how we "teach" our kids, to parenting styles, to worshipping the Creator, to travel and almost everything in between. I mean, I want so desperately to be friends with people. I'm just not a person of many words. I am a doer. I mean, I can sit down and have some pretty deep conversations with you if you want, but the average person does not want to do that upon meeting someone for the first time (or even for the first few weeks or months). I have the urge to blurt out, "Want to be my friend?" when I meet anyone that even slightly appears to not be offset by my personality. But then I run the risk of completely weirding said person out and being eternally avoided by her. I also carry in the back of my mind that we are very transient here. I don't mind making friends with people, knowing that we will be here 3 months, gone 3 months, here 3 months, gone 3 months... I don't mind. However....most people don't want to invest any time in becoming friends just to have you up and leave every few months. I mean, I would give my left arm to help my friends! But you wouldn't know that unless you let me hang around with you.

Anyways, we get to spend 3 days/3 nights in Iceland on a stopover on our way to see Daddy. It should be fun. I hope it will be fun.


  1. You should have bought a house in WA. I would live there rent free for you. :)


I like to hear from you all, so leave me a message!
