Oy!

We had a lovely day with the Selent's! We took them downtown for lunch where we had possibly the worst waitress experience to date. :) I won't list all the fun details that made it so umm...interesting but I will say that when we asked to talk to the manager they told us that he was "busy". Yea, that about sums up the experience. But we still managed a fun day overall. Above are the two youngest boys, Zion and Canaan...who looked so much alike to me when they got there that I couldn't tell who was who!
Eric and Michelle...we are so sad not to be living just down the street from them anymore. :(
These are delightful boys with wonderful parents!
I thought Michelle was adorable in her hat and glasses. :)
Some of the boys played in the sprinkler. Here is Noah.
Moses has always had a special place for ZZ. He was all over him just about the whole time.
All of us together. :) LOVE these friends. :)
Playing Apples to Apples.
Moses was after the Apples to Apples cards so I gave him his own deck...which he LOVED. :)
Moses making sure that all eyes were on him. :)

It was a great day but now I am in that place where Charlottesville seems so lonely again. We loved our life in Radford and honestly can't say we love C'ville nearly as much. It seems like whenever I explore an avenue to get us more engaged in the area a roadblock is thrown in my face...today it's trying to come up with an extra $100 to get into MOPS before its completely full...which happened to us last year. So today I am contemplative, quiet and gray...kinda like the weather outside. Here is to the day getting better...

And P.S. Traci...the sign is not in the shop yet...I hope to get it in there in a day or two.
EDITED TO ADD...THE SIGN IS IN THE SHOP!
Pin It!

It is so hard to move away from a place you love so much! We moved from D.C to way down southern md on the water & what an adjustment, but it is now going on 2 years & I could'nt imagine living anywhere else! The girls school is great, I take my son to storytime at the library & have met great people. I also LOVE our church, the people are so nice. Just hang in there things will get better:) Oh I know what you mean about coming up w/money... it's ridiculous with food & gas prices ugh! never ending!!

What a great looking family. So glad you got to spend a day with them and reconnect. I have a hard time when family and friends come from far away and then leave. Cheer up! Hugs to you.

I think it must just be a gray kinda day. It seems as if everyone I talk to or read about, including myself is feeling grey today. :(

Tomorrow is going to be a sunshine kinda day! I can feel it!! :)

Something to keep in mind is that God's purposes will be fulfilled regardless of our decisions or choices, with or without our help and if He has a plan for us He will make a way, if not, then it must not be part of the bigger picture! God Bless!

That is a handsome family if I do say so myself. If you could e mail me copies of your photos I would love to have them. Missed you as soon as we left.
