so may was a whirlwind of a month for me. in addition to being crazy busy at work, i moved! this move was a big deal for a couple of reasons:
i left these girls, whom i love! cassie and i have lived together since i moved to austin and rachel was one of my first friends at austin stone. though i know we will still hang out, it will not be the same and i will miss them greatly!
i got to move in with some other good friends of mine and their two little boys!! the engstroms have been some of my good friends since i moved here. todd is on staff with me and olivia and i have not only read through systematic theology together (yes all of it) but we have caused a lot of fun and thrown many parties together. something that i am sure will happen even more often now that i am living in the guest room. i do love todd and olivia, but one of the biggest highlights for me is getting to live with Gus the Bus (3years) and Deuce the Caboose (1 year)! i have already become a better sword fighter and fighter of bad guys. i also have perfected the art of handing deuce back to his mama before he vomits - thus keeping myself clean. how cute are these guys!
this move marked the end of a season and the beginning of another. i moved in with the engstrom clan to save money so that i could pay off debt faster. once my debt is paid off, i plan to take the classes i need to in order to adopt and then move in a place of my own, do a home study and then adopt. so essentially, this was the last time i would have "normal" roommates. that is it. exciting and weird all at the same time. i have been talking about adoption for awhile now, and as i started taking these first concrete steps it has really hit me. i am more excited than ever and more nervous than ever. we will see what happens over this next year. CRAZY! but until then, i will have a blast living with my new roomies (as Gus the Bus calls me).
