Good Byes and Hellos

Let me start by apologizing for falling behind here on the LePage Family Stuff. But if you are even remotely close to us you know the big changes that have been taking place in our lives. These changes have totally consumed me. My thoughts. My prayers. My sleep. My friends. My friends. My friends. My friends. And oh, my friends! How I miss my friends!

My loving husband has gotten a job that he has wanted for years. And it's not in Texas. Nope. Not even close to Texas. In fact, it's precisely 1000 miles north of Texas. And if you are any good with your geography you'd know that would put us about 50 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Lafayette, Indiana to be exact. This is home for my loving husband. His dream. And here we are. Finally living it. Good job. Great little house. Close to family. Long, long, long way from friends and from a church we grew to love more than anything. Glenwood kept us in Tyler for a lot longer than we ever anticipated being in Tyler. It was worth every extra day we spent there. You wanna know why? Well, I'll tell ya.

Not only is Glenwood the "singing-est group of people", it's also the most loving and accepting group of people. And they all love God. And love to serve. Just look at these beautiful faces:

Did I mention the people of Glenwood love to serve? Well, that's an understatement. We knew only about 10 days before we moved that we were going to, um, move. So, we kinda started to mention it to people. People we thought might be able to help us. The night before we got the UHaul we figured we had 5 guys ready to come help us the next morning. And we felt totally blessed to have those five guys and their muscles. Well, at 7 am this past Saturday morning those five guys showed up right on time. But you know what? So did 5 other guys! Amazing. Today was unloading day. Welcome to Indiana. Where the weather is at least 20 degrees cooler! That in itself is a gigantic blessing! Now the boys can play outside anytime and we don't have to worry about them succumbing to the East Texas heat! We found a great little house. Picket fenced back yard. Perfect. Corner lot. Walking trails. Parks. Close to everything, but off the beaten path. And once again we had some amazing help! And this, my friends, is our new home sweet home. Texas LePage Family: Welcome to Indiana!
