wow I did so much this weekend, I don't even know where to start!
I looked at a couple of horses for Morgan and found one that I really like. It is a 7 year old pinto quarter horse/morgan horse. His name is Saturn and he is a gem. He is very calm and would be great to have for all my little girls! She rode 2 horses and felt the most comfortable on Saturn. I do want to look at more horses before making any decisions and have to look into boarding one close to our house until we get our fencing complete. With J working out of town and gone for 10 days at a time then home for 4, the fence might take some time and I don't want to put too much pressure on him.
I also went back to the church I went to last week and think this could be the one. I feel very comfortable there and with J only being home every other weekend this was important for me. I also talked to the senior pastor and he knows my old pastors from WRCF which made me feel a connection there and somehow safe. The people are friendly and I have been invited to 2 small groups already! the girls LOVE the Sunday School and Morgan and her friend (who she met this summer at the cabin and moved here as well) love the service. They also have a huge established youth group and that was a key factor for us too. The worship is contemporary and a little rocking........right up my alley! I don't know most of the songs but I love every one I we sung. They do a skit every service and have a coffee break in the middle of the service serving Tim Horton's coffee, tea and juice. They encourage the people to have relationship and have just kicked off 40 days of community based on the book by Rick Warren. It feels good to know where I am going every week and start finding my place and where/how God wants me to fit in.
J left today for his first shift at work. So it will be interesting to see how it goes. I know he will do fine and prove himself more than worthy of the foreman position they have placed him in. In fact I can see him moving up quite quickly. He is just so good with people and fair and the hardest worker I have ever seen......well him and my dad!!
I guest blogged at my friends site Super Mom.....feel free to check it out! that is my first guest post! I also posted the "this is a test" for her too! I tried to help her bring her side bar back up but ya couldn't do it!!! I got a lot more to learn about all this html stuff!
