just a quick note to tell y'all that we are here in oregon.
it is BEAUTIFUL.
when i step out onto our deck i feel like i'm camping.
we live on a mountainside with beautiful gardens and trees and frogs and owls...
i have lavender all along one side of my fence, a dogwood tree, aspens, a beautiful blue hydranga bush... and a gardener.
we feel SO blessed to be here.
we had a bunch of people from church help us unload our trucks last night.
the professor is off to school (he starts teaching on Monday) and I'm up to my ears in boxes.
my mother and father in law kept ellie, leah and lily in idaho until next week.
i have my three oldest, and the baby helping unpack.
our new home is beautiful and perfect and full of windows.
it's cold here. i hardly have anything that i can wear- coming from 100* Texas weather.
I think it is going to be 70* all week.
there have been off and on rain showers. it is SO pretty.
coming from texas i still feel SO BLESSED when it rains.
(There is a drought in Lubbock- we have been fasting and praying for rain.)
i know it rains a lot here. i wonder if i will always love it as much as i do now?
today my mission is to unpack.
to make my new house feel like my home.
soon i will get to know the area better.
i have LOTS of pictures-- but i'm still missing the cords to connect my camera to the computer.
so, pictures coming soon.
i can't wait for you to see this place.
thinking of you... hope your summer is going well!!
