Whew. What a long journey it has been to get to this point. We made it from Mattawan, Michigan to Plain Dealing, Louisiana. From one perspective, the trip took 16 hours over 2 days. From another perspective, this journey took 3 1/2 months.
We are getting settled in now. We have more than half of the boxes unpacked. Most of the boxes that are still packed are books – no idea where we are going to put all of those. We are also learning how to find our way to places like the store, the library, the post office, the farmer’s market, etc. Our new home is nice, but it is out in the middle of nowhere. It takes about 20 minutes to get to our new church and about 30 minutes to get to Wal-Mart. The trip to the Kroger where we will do most of our grocery shopping is about 45 minutes.
I am having trouble getting pictures to upload, so no pictures right now. I will be working on that over the next few days. I am also trying to organize my notes to I can add posts about our journey to Louisiana and our first days here. My goal is to post 5 to 7 times a week to keep everyone up to date on our new lives in Louisiana, so be sure to stop by often!
