7:47 AM Good morning from Farwell, Texas! We drove in yesterday around lunchtime and took our time unloading both cars. Several folks from the church here met us and helped us bring things into the house and stayed to visit for a while. Yesterday afternoon, people stopped by from time to time and introduced themselves, which was very nice, especially since we didn't have too much to do other than put away the small amount of things we had brought with us. We are all very happy to be here, although the cats don't seem too convinced we're going to stay, no matter how much we tell them, "this is your new home now!"
We are so very thankful that we had (mostly) good days driving out here and that we had so many opportunities to visit with my family. I'm anxious and eager to get to work here and I know that Susan is anxious and eager to get settled and get into a work routine of her own. The parsonage is more than we were anticipating (for some reason we both had a mental image of a house that we lived in when we first got married). Our household goods will arrive on Monday, and I'm sure that there will be plenty to do after that. We have a pretty good sense of where everything will go, but you know something will come off that truck that we will have to leave in the yard for the afternoon until we figure out what to do with it!
Thanks again to everyone for your prayers as we travel. They have been much appreciated!
