We are getting settled and into a routine around here. Not that we always need to have a routine, but I like to have the impression of one to try and live up to.
Today Heidi and her daughter Elin took Max and I into Peoria to prove to me that I don't live in the middle of nowhere. But I'm a tough sell because I am currently living next to cornfields.
Thanks Heidi! I feel much better about getting in and around Peoria now. It's good to know there is a Starbucks and also a Hobby Lobby within a short drive.
Yesterday Max and I walked from the parsonage to the Town Square (I wondered how long it would take) and I think tomorrow we will walk back in because now I know where the post office is.
We're getting used to small town life- We've made the local paper two weeks in a row with our arrival. Yeah, it's that small.
Here are a few pics taken recently.
The view from the church. A far cry from Dallas, that's for sure.
We have been warmly (very warmly) welcomed.
Max loves his new home.
But still misses Texas and still feels a little upside down with all the moving and traveling we've done recently.
