The other thing that made the realization of being here a year more evident in my mind was planting our second veggie garden, Gordon.
The K-man was thrilled to plant Gordon again! He specifically asked for us to plant cherry tomatoes. Last year he loved to pick them right from the plant and eat them for a snack while playing outside!
So, How has moving from Houston (with a huge secure group of friends) to a very small community (knowing nobody) changed me and my family?
1. Our lives have slowed down
Overall, I don't feel myself feeling as lonely as often. I don't sit around wondering what everyone in H-Town is doing and what I'm missing out on. The K-man doesn't talk about his pretend friends as much and Little Bit doesn't cry when being dropped off at MDO or bible class-all signs we are better and more secure here now. My adorable husband is so in his element. Over the year he is more confident and more social then I have ever seen him-
Hmmm. What does the next year hold for us in our small country town??? Who knows...but I'm sure it will be a Fun Adventure!
