Oh What We Would Give.....

for our computer techie to be back with us. LOL

Seriously, Krista hasn't been able to get the DSL in their apartment working. THEN we hooked up MY laptop and it works. A neighbor gave them a wireless router that we thought would make it so that either computer would work.....but neither works....and so I'm leaving my laptop at their apartment while she continues to try to figure out why HERS won't work on the DSL...and I've not a clue about the wireless.

Stacia and I ran downtown to get certified copies of "my" marriage license. It was hot for here (and my summer clothes are all gone - I really will need to go shopping soon). This wonderful fountain is outside of the legal buildings.....and kids splash in it. I thought Stacia would love it but the fish seemed to freak her out.

We opted for a glass of lemonade in the shade instead....but it was made from rose water and so Stacia didn't "love it".

We found UPS and mailed things overnight to McChord.

We picked up 2 of my 4 meds...and found BROWN COW....

Back at home we discovered that the kids had decided to make a tree fort. Mom and Dad were at the house and Mom was having fun with them, while dad took a nap.

Mom and Dad stayed for dinner. They went home, we cleaned up, then we went for a walk. We met several of the girls' new neighbors.

Jared practiced his homeless speech for 2029....He seems to think this pcs will make great political campaign speech fodder in the future.

This is a beautiful campus. We're blessed to have some time here.

Exciting Update

I love how God is leading me through this unknown maze a step at a time. I was worried...but He has repeatedly showed me that I'm not to shrink back, I'm not to fear, I'm to walk in confidence.... There's a reason this has all happened....and I believe there are good things happening somewhere because of all this. Seeds are being planted. There will be a harvest. He loves me, he led me to the "wilderness" (which is fairly cushy as wilderness' go ::snort::), and this valley of trouble is a door of hope.

An example...yesterday I began to wonder if I needed to quit knocking on doors and in my reading of the Word (in a new Bible - no well worn passages to pop out) I kept hearing "Knock, seek, don't shrink back". I kept pushing and discovered where the lost birth certificates were and what needed to be done 30 min before McChord closed for the day.

Today, the kids and I worried that it would be "safer" for me to drive up and retrieve the certificates than to depend on Sgt. A Reading this a.m. I came across "cease striving and KNOW that I am God". So I tried to leave it alone. 2 hours later Sgt. A called to report that he has the certificates in hand.

Sgt. A also remembered that he'd forgot to tell me I need a copy of our marriage license. I'll go get that this afternoon - I hope it is that simple and they don't need a birth certificate - which is at McChord. ::snort::

We're waiting for Stacia's certificate and the marriage license and then the military passports can be applied for. We're researching and praying about an alternate option - flying as tourists. McChord continues to tell me it will be 6- 8 weeks. I'm beginning to wonder if it will be two weeks. We shall see.

I was able to have 2 of our 4 stolen prescriptions filled. I need to go pick them up, find a marriage license and maybe go to the lake...or library. Arielle has read all the books given to her as goodbye gifts, as birthday gifts and the ones Jamin left her. ::snort:: I may help Krista paint...or I may avoid the project.
