E is for Eventful
Yesterday was a landmark day. The boys entered formal school for the first time. Alex's sixth grade teacher was a former mechanical engineer in aviation. She will likely stimulate his interest in science and math. Fritz's third grade teacher has been teaching for 30 years and is the warmest and most loving teacher a kid could want. She is the reason we chose the school.
And after nearly 3 years of decisions, 6 contracts, 3 realtors, 1 huge disaster, 4 weeks of demolition, 7 months of reconstruction, countless prayers and tears, God sold our house in Michigan. All that comes to mind is 2 Peter 3:8:
"But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day."
Believe me, this human living those days felt like it was a thousand years, but God blinked and it was over.
