Phew! Good thing I've toyed with this blogger thing enough to know where to sign in and post a new blog! It all came up in German and I'm not sure how to get it in English! (Hopefully it doesn't translate my post into German...)
Real quick... WE'RE LOVING IT!! I am struggling to find words to describe how wonderful it all is. Everything people said about it is true -- and more. I think I've been waiting all my life for this (and just didn't know it until I was about 16 years old). We're staying in temporary housing on base while we house-hunt out in the surrounding villages.
I so want to share every detail with you -- and I will... but for now I have to make it short as our sponsor is going to look over the housing list with me and we're going to set some appointments. Please know that with each house we look at I picture which room will be ours, the boy's, Israel's, and YOURS! I'll keep you posted...
LeRoy started his job yesterday! Yahoo! Much to learn. Many changes. Because they're in a bit of transition, LeRoy has showed up and is using his many skills to fill in in about three different positions until they get people situated. Yep! That's my man! Of course, he does all this and comes home a party-man in the evening!
This morning I got up at 4 AM and Isaiah must have heard me. He joined me at the dining room table and announced he was going to stay up with me and write a letter, too. So I made us a pot of coffee and we settled in. Pretty soon Israel and Ezekiel joined us, too. And since we were having so much fun, LeRoy decided to get ready for the day and hang out with us, also. Eli did come out, and in a sleepy stupor, asked what we were all doing up in the middle of the night. We invited him to write in his journal or write letters with us but he said he was going back to bed. At least someone in the family is smart!
Anyway, I'll share more later... oh! There is just so much to share!! I don't even know where to begin! We've been here four days and I still can hardly believe how dreamy, how surreal, romantic, and nostalgic it all is! We are traveling by train to Trier on Friday -- if I don't update you before then, I'll definitely let you know about our adventures on that day.
Love you, Sharon
