Goodbye Trip & Hello Halloween!

We have had a wonderful, but busy weekend.  It started with saying goodbye to my career as a 3rd grade teacher at Trip Elementary.  Jonathan used his entire day off to pick up our neighbors truck (yes - Peyton's sweetness had our neighbors smitten, therefore, they offered their pickup truck for the move), moved extremely heavy boxes/book shelves/school books/etc, & unloaded all items to our new home. It was bittersweet.  I will miss walking the halls of Trip, sharing laughs & tears with my amazing 3rd grade team, & teaching 8 year olds more than just curriculum.  

Peyton's first holiday has come & gone.  All I wanted was a family picture in front of our new home with Peyton in a Halloween outfit & our pretty pumpkins.  Well, Peyton had other ideas.... He cried.  Check out the pictures!!! I talked with him all day about Halloween - dressing up, candy, jack-o-lanterns.  I can't wait for future Halloweens! If he's anything like his daddy, he'll love the chocolate & saying "Trick or Treat" to anyone!

 Thanks Nana for the Halloween outfit! (Aunt Nancy, Peyton spit up on your outfit before we had a chance to photograph... oh well!)

Beginning to Blog!

Good Morning Family & Friends! As I have been home from work, enjoying taking care of our newborn, I have loved reading "mommy" blogs, as well as friends blogs.  Therefore, I am going to attempt to start blogging.

Since recently moving, many family & friends live far away.  We connect through phone calls, texts, & facebook. I thought this blog might be another creative way to connect to those we love.  Jonathan & I want to share our adventures of being newly senior pastor & minister's wife, parents, & residents of small town Royston.

Please join me as we try to navigate these transitions in our lives.  Watch Peyton grow through pictures & stories.  Laugh as we share our mistakes as a new parents. Pray & cry with us as we discern God's call for our lives.  We love you!
