Here are just a few pictures...

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.

Wow, that is a country view alright! Max looks like he is adjusting ok. We found your church's website so we can stay up to date :)

We miss you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
much! Love your cornfield view- who needs oceans when you have endless green. Little chuckle here at the helpdesk with you all making the newspaper two weeks in a row. Heee... keep us updated. I check the blog religiously.
Love, tina
