it's been a busy week but we are very thankful for everything we've been able to do. steve has been practicing driving, begun painting our apartment, and worked on a number of other odds and ends. the girls have been adjusting. the time change wasn't too bad but gwyneth seems to have some sort of a cold. i've been busy buying appliances. it's been kind of fun and kind of overwhelming. the temptation to speak with a british accent is almost too much at times. the nicholsons are taking very good care of us and we are so glad to be here!

we said goodbye to our friends and now we're here waiting at gsp. our flight was delayed and we're hoping/praying there won't be any conflicts with our connecting flight in chicago. i guess there's some bad weather there. thanks for praying.

We leave today for our vacation. If you think about it, please pray that we have a restful and spiritually profitable week as a family. Things are going to be pretty crazy for us for a while until we get settled in Wales (we're planning to move in November, the LORD willing).

my 2nd trip to charlotte ended with an impromptu visit to the talbot's outlet (thanks to lisa, my trusted companion). among other things i was able to get some great rain boots! i'm told that we'll call them wellies in wales. maggie seems to like them.

we've been trying our hand at painting furniture lately. we bought this maple dresser at goodwill a few years ago and finally decided to paint it. steve had already taken the drawers out and removed the wooden handles before i thought to take a picture. you get the idea. of course, a chocolate shake from chik-fil-a was just what we needed to get the job done!

we had a great meeting yesterday in mountain home, nc. the ast. pastor that we had lunch w/ is nanc certified so you can imagine all of the fun i had talking with him about counseling, etc. we are just about ready to send in our visa applications, maggie now regularly talks to her imaginary friend "linguini" (from ratatouille) and gwyneth has 6 teeth, can roll over and sit up by herself. we are trying to pack what we can and getting very excited about our move to wales. i am adjusting to using iphotos for blogging and am hoping to get back in to blogging this week. thanks for tuning in.
