No News is ... Well, No News

Well, this has been a pretty quiet and uneventful week. I would have loved it to be a little more eventful with showings... it is ridiculous how slow this market is right now. We don't even have a destination yet, so it isn't like there is a big hurry to sell the house, but it is a bit disconcerting. I am trying to remember that God is sovereign in all of this and I don't need to stress out. Hopefully, we will start to get more action on the house as far as showings go and the rest will take care of itself.
Noah has his final recital and graduation tonight from Children's Music Academy. I am looking forward to him being done with the program... not nearly as much as he is, but I am proud of him for sticking with it to the end. Since Elijah will not be here for another year + to graduate, he would like to stop as well. It makes me a bit sad that he won't finish, but these are battles that I don't care to fight. I will save my ammunition for another day. I will try to post pictures from tonight in the next few days.
Our little Elf, Ellie, is doing well. She is a bit of roller-coaster with attachment lately, but she is doing some pretty funny stuff to keep us laughing. While none of our kids have seen the Lord of the Rings movies... too scary... they have read through some of the trilogy and enjoy doing their best "orc" voices. Ellie has mastered, "I smell Man Flesh!" in a pretty hysterical voice. We like to pull it out in restaurants. I must say it is a crack up.
On the job front, Milan is still in the process with a church in San Antonio as well as another near Grove City, PA. He is planning to send more applications out as well, but I don't think that has happened yet for more than these two. Thankfully, they have reciprocated interest and we will see where the process leads. Both actually seem to be a really good fit for Milan's skill set, philosophy of ministry and desires.
Church is rather strange on the weekends. Going from being the pastor and his family to temporary attenders at a church where we don't know many people and aren't planning to get too involved due to our circumstances, is bizaaarrrreeeee to say the least. Church is what brought us to Colorado and pretty much has consumed our time and lives since we arrived. All of the sudden, we are worshipping somewhere else and we are not seeing the people with whom we have served and cared for regularly, if at all. It feels a little isolating and I am looking forward to moving on and getting plugged back into a community. We still have dear friends here, but people are busy with work, family, their lives, etc and not having that standing time together once a week kind of stinks. Oh well, life changes and there is nothing to be done about it. I am looking forward to a fun evening with two of the best girlie-friends ever tomorrow night. It's a surprise, so I will have to fill in the details later.
Now that I have rambled a while on the oh-so-exciting details of my life of late, I will sign off. You'll just have to wait on pins and needles until next time.
