Our new life (for 7 more weeks)

I just wanted to write a quick something.  I am blown away by how well Darcy and Haley Jane are transitioning to this new place.  They have slept great every night and cheer when I tell them it is time to go to school.  I know it is evidence that God heard my prayers for this transition.  Colby and I, on the other hand, had quite the rough start to this whole thing (I'm sure he'll blog it this weekend), but we are finally getting settled as well.  We are in class from 8:00-3 or 4:00 every afternoon as are the girls.  My dream of having a cafeteria and not having to cook or clean has finally come true and I cannot describe how happy it makes me.  Haley and I run to dinner together (300 meters),  we eat together outside on the patio at 5:00, take turns exercising in the evening while the girls play at the playground with all their new little friends, and then spend time praying, reading, and doing language study after the girls go to bed.  It is a VERY packed schedule, but we are starting to get used to the new structure.  I have so much to say and share, but I have to get to bed before lights out (the self-inflicted lights out, that is).   I will write a prayer request post this weekend.  Something you could pray for now is for Darcy's class...they are dropping like flies.  Strep throat, diarrhea, fevers, colds...pray that her little immune system will be strong this week!  If she gets sick, we will have to miss our class.
