We Are Here
After driving for 2 days we made it to Lubbock on Friday. My Mom drove with us and stayed until today. To say it has been nice to have her here would be an understatement. It has been a blessing to have her. I could not have made the 1000 mile drive with a 5 month old without her. It was sad to drop her off at the airport this morning. Ever since Elise was born my Mom has been my rock. This will be such an adjustment for us as we have had family and friends close to us for so long. I know this is where we are supposed to be and I know we will make friends. So far we really like it here. The people are so friendly. I will have pictures and more to post later.

It was so great to see your mom as you were passing through Denver! I moved right after I had both of my babies and it was really hard, but if I can do it so can you! Your ward family will fill the void! And you have all of your blogger buddies!

I know exactly how you feel! It is definately hard to be away. But I always think this is adventure in our lives that we will never get back.
