After I wrote last week, we finally received our certificate of occupancy from the county! I don’t know that we’ll frame it, but it is nice to have it. Probably not gonna be in a conspicuous place as it says, but we will be able to show it should push come to shove.
More work went on inside the motor home last week, mostly decorative. Sometime back, LeRoy took down the accordion-style bedroom and bathroom doors and replaced them with curtains. The others were wide enough that his shoulders hit both sides, not conducive to speedy movement from one room to another, especially in the dark! Because the curtains provide privacy, we added a clear shower curtain to make the bathroom not seem so cramped. There’s only so much you can do, though! We’re stocking up on little trays that will fit in the bathroom storage to hold all the necessary stuff and still be able to pull them out. We’re gearing up for a few months in about half the space we had in Liberty, so everything has to be convenient.
Back home, we had word last week that Benjamin’s enlistment into the Air National Guard is now scheduled for tomorrow! Wish we could be there to see it!
Yesterday was the big moving day for granddaughter Jordan, her husband Marc and of course, Rae.
Marc is the new lead pastor at a church in Ellsworth, KS. Speaking from VAST experience, moving is decidedly not fun, but I think having family and friends provide strong arms and good company really helps. Their new house is unusual, to say the least. I can hardly wait to see it! The outside is very 1886, but the inside is decidedly 2019.
I imagine Heidi and Tim “may” have shed a few tears when they headed for home in Sedgwick last night. I remember when they moved from Wichita for their first pastorate and I know I cried a little? Comptons are only a couple of hours up the road, though, so it will soon become a familiar drive.
We’re in the home stretch here in Yuma. Our current plan, subject to change, is to be packed and ready to leave on April 17. If we miss you this season, we’ll see you all down the road!
