Thankful!

October 18, 2009

This week we unpacked more boxes and we are starting to feel at home! A beautiful thankful spirit is welling up inside of us! We are thankful for many things! We are so thankful for our new apartment! I am so thankful that Landon still takes naps! He took a 3 hour nap yesterday and I had to wake him up! I turned on the light, opened the shades, took pictures of him and he still slept!

I am really thankful that we have the opportunity to focus on learning Slovene for this year! This language is quite complicated and I am really enjoying the chance to focus deeply on it. This morning we drove to Maribor to go to our church. It was so great to listen to the sermon and to write down all the words we recognized (80-90 words).  Three weeks ago we didn’t know anything and now we can kind of understand the gist of what is going on! 🙂 We are so thankful! We are also so thankful to have the opportunity to serve in Maribor! We love the city so much! The picture below is the view of a beautiful park right across the street from our church.

This week has suddenly turned quite cold. Everyday this week we have been so busy going to classes and unpacking our apartment. Poor Landon has been cooped up all week but on Friday we decided we needed to get out of the house and have a short family time. We went to a nearby park and let him ride his bike, his poor little hands were so cold! He actually asked to go home after a while because he was so cold! We are very thankful for our kid! We are thankful for family time and for his energetic little personality! We are thankful we could get him a bike and enjoy it with him! And, we are so thankful for all of you! We are thankful for your prayers and your friendship with us! We miss you all so much!
