New Scrapbook Pages

Leaving behind friends is never easy. It is somewhat comforting to know that visiting one another is possible. But it is not as simple though for "furry friends." Knowing that flying dogs is not easily done, it is sad that the dogs will not see each other again. They are going to miss Jake so much. I will miss him too!
This picture is from a day at the lake with the 3 of them.

This is a picture of Moses and me from Colorado.
I love this boy:>


Well here is the 411 on my life and the move. I am working until Tuesday the 22ND. I get off of work that morning at 8 AM. Hopefully getting loaded and on the road will not take too long. We will probably be on the road by 10 AM. On the way, we are going to stop in St. Lois for an hour or two. Since I have lived here I have wanted to make a trip out there but the time never came. Every time that I have driven through it, it has been in the middle of the night so taking in the sights was impossible.
The main thing I would like to do is see "Gateway to the West." It would be nice to drive the 17 hours straight through, but I know that I cant do that. If I wasnt driving alone it would be a little easier. The dogs will be with me in the car. The good thing is that they are terrific passengers. They love to be on any raod trip. Even though I miss my kitty cat Hadassah, it would have been awful driving this far with her.
So, by Thursday afternoon we will be in Charelston. YEAH!! The internet is dial up there so blogging and emailing will be a little on the slow side (understatement).
Week one of being there will be very busy. I have to meet with advisers and register for classes. It will be a huge releif to have all of that taken care of.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

The Memory is Forever

This is a picture of me with the dogs from a few weeks ago. As the move draws nearer I am becoming more and more excited, but there are times that I am reminded of how many things I will miss about this place. This is one of those moments.

Soaking up the Sunshine

I love this picture of Game and Moses.
Almost daily, after a long walk in the heat we will make a trip to the lake.
If there is no one in sight then, when we get out I let them run freely to the water. I love the water as much as they do.
It is so calm and relaxing. They are just pure entertainment! We have created some great memories out there. Since they were each puppies, this place has been a big part of our lives. In a couple of weeks I will be trading this lake for the ocean. I think I can live with that!!

A New Season

I am really looking forward to the season ahead. I have loved Kansas City...well liked is a better word. Something here has never really felt like home. Home? I don't know what that looks like for me. I desperately miss the friends that are so dear to my heart. People like Jamie...3 years is far too long to go without seeing your best friend. I miss the Drolet family. They have made a couple of visits, which just ever increased my longing to move. I miss Ricky too and so many others. The last 2 years turned out to look much different than what I pictured it would look like before I moved. There are a lot of things that I would do over if I could, but I am also very grateful for the mistakes. I will keep the lessons and wisdom that came with it all for this season. My life has changed by me being here.
Right now I am in some kind of "purgatory." I am out of my townhouse and staying with a friend until my move date. It has changed a few times. There is no more moving it back though because I start school on the 4th of August. I am ready for the change. A new home and school, hopefully a really great church to plug into.
I am looking forward to Charleston!!
