processing during adjustment

I’ve been trying to write a proper update/newsletter for weeks now, and every time I sit to type, I write a bunch of stuff out and then leave it. I just can’t seem to process everything right now. Nor can I seem to write out what I’d really like to say. So I’ll just be perfectly honest and not worry about what you, the reader, may or may not...

pearls

I was going to edit my previous post and add this, but instead, I think I just want to let it flow as it is . . . Over the past 6 months of living in Scotland, we’ve discovered a few things: the Scottish are different from the English; the politics, the culture, and the societal norm are very different from us and our values, which can be scary in the natural;...

an update

As our eighth month in the UK comes to a close, three things are clear: I need an office assistant, we are in a stretching season, and nothing is easy.

And I’m trying to not let that scare me as we have so much going on and so much to do right now!! So this will be a bit of a news update as well as a processing post; please bear with me. As many of you know, our application to allow...

counting the cost

I thought this blog had probably died, yet there has been one post that I’ve wanted to write and haven’t been able to word clearly. I’ve only wanted to write this if I could say it the way that I actually see it. So I hope that those who read this will hear my heart and read to the end where the best part is. We’ve now been in the UK for over...

becoming a warrior princess

As my husband left for work, he commented on our daughter’s new love of Tinkerbell and how cool the new Tinkerbell movies are. My immediate response was “I know, because Tinkerbell is now like a warrior princess and I am totally okay with our daughter being a warrior princess.” And in my mind I was actually picturing Eowyn from Lord of the Rings,...
