Well this is it

We have just dropped Emma off at the airport - the last one to leave us after the Christmas break and I am not quite sure what to get on with. I have a whole list of things to do and the list gets scarier the nearer we get to our "probable" leaving date.

To bring everyone up to date (well as far as we know) we are leaving sunny Colorado, USA for Latvia either the end of February or mid-March, depending on whether we can fit in a holiday or not (vacation for our American friends). We have had three companies come in and peek through our belongings, managing in the meantime not to comment on the various strange assortment of items we want to take with us, like whole packing boxes of scrap materials. At least one of the guys understood - his wife makes quilts! We still have lots of things to sort out both in the finances and in the legalities but we will keep plugging away at the to do list and hopefully by the time we leave everything will be sorted out - an optimistic wish I suspect if previous experience is anything to go by. 

Ian and I are both a bit tired but it is possibly as much to do with various viruses floating about rather than just the thought of the moving process. At least we are looking forward to a bit of a sabbatical at the other end because so far Ian has no up and coming work ahead. We are looking forward to what God has planned for us though and it will be a surprise, as at the moment we have no idea.

Well I think that will do for now as it was rather a long first blog. We do welcome your prayers in our move and for the year ahead and we hope this will help to keep people in touch with where we get to in this next year.

I will finally leave with a quote from Confucius "Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart"

  1. Yay for blogging! The only thing i would ask of you is that you would be more attentive and diligent in your posting practices than I usually am with mine. (heh.)


I love to hear your comments and will always reply, so go ahead, ask a question or just say hi
