November...

It's been a crazy few weeks. I think I'm going to be saying that every few weeks until a year from now so bear with me! Anyways we moved out of our house last week because it was already reserved for someone else for a month, so we're currently homeless. Yay! We moved out on Friday and on Saturday we left for Virginia for our appointment week with our new job. It was sort of like an orientation with the company and it was culminated with a big service in Mississippi. It was a really special time to get commissioned and meet all the people that will be at training with us in January.

While eating dinner at the church before the service a lady walked up holding a bouquet of roses. We were surprised at first and wondered what it was about. Then she handed us a card and said that Thomas's parents had contacted the church saying they were sorry they couldn't make it to the service but that they were very proud of us. We were both moved by their thoughtfulness.

We got back from our trip on Friday and on Sunday Thomas spoke at my home church in Cherryville. He did a great job by sharing his testimony and then preaching on the book of Jonah. I know I'm biased and everything, but he did a great job. I'm so proud of my husband! I know I don't tell him that enough, but I truly am.

Outside the church

This week we're taking it easy and just having fun playing with Judah and hanging with family and friends. Today was warm so we took Judah outside to play. He loves being outside. Every time we try to get him to go back in he pitches a fit! We walked around in the leaves and we sat him up in the seat of my dad's tractor. He was so funny turning the steering wheel and pulling on the levers. He even said the word tractor for the first time!
