On the move . . .

We were supposed to meet at a friend's house for dinner this past Thursday before our big move from Connecticut to Tennessee. When we arrived a few minutes late on Thursday, we were welcomed by a group of neighbor friends at a surprise party for us! We were so thrilled! What a happy ending to a wonderful two years in Connecticut! Thanks to all of our neighbor friends for going out of your way to make this such a special evening.

Moving day arrived yesterday, August 30th. We flew out of Hartford to our new home destination in Tennessee. I must say that the hotel room has been rather cramped with three kids, a dog, two guinea pigs and Brad and me. Not a way that I would desire to live on a day to day basis. However, I am grateful for the fact that we will only be here for about a week while we wait on our house closing date to arrive this coming Friday.

We could definitely be in worse circumstances. There are a ton of evacuees from Hurricane Gustav in the Memphis area right now. People have been checking in to hotels around here all day today and I really feel for them. I would much rather be in our situation than in this terrible situation. Not knowing whether you would even have a home tomorrow would be very disconcerting.

Today was not a wasted day as we visited Bellevue Baptist Church, which we have been told is the largest Southern Baptist Church in the nation. The kids really enjoyed it and it was not quite as overwhelming as we thought it would be. We may be going back for another visit in the future.
