On to bigger and better things: It's the first day of a new week. Oh, hooray. Devin left this morning for his three week training. I'm oh so sad. I can't help being a little freaked out every time we're separated, but we were just reading and discussing the 'lost' airline and it makes it way worse. On top of the fact that I am just not a good 'single' mom. :/
The kids and I had a nice day, though. We did lots of school projects. We made a rocket and shot it off a few times (until the construction paper disintegrated from all the water and alkaseltzer). Claire went to activity day with her little friends. I couldn't help but sit and muse about what a blessing that is. This is the first time she's lived at a place with a group of girls about her own age that have really accepted her and loved her. I love watching it. I'm so grateful we get to bask in it for another year and a half!! As we've been researching all the different posts, I keep wondering about the most important aspect of a new place: friends. Will there be good friends for my kids? That's not something you can find out from Wikipedia or post reports (no matter how detailed those reports are)! It's all a matter of prayer, then following where the spirit leads, and hoping for the best. I guess it's always that way, whether you're moving to a new neighborhood across town or a new continent. It's all the same, really. People are people, and you just hope you find some kindred spirits along the way to make the way easy.
