Temporary housing. That's another beast. We had originally been told that N's company would provide temporary housing until we found a house. It turns out that they will not, and so we have to find a place to live in less than two weeks. Any of you have Dallas connections?
As our move date draws closer, we have been trying to be as intentional as possible about spending time with friends. We had Tanya over for dinner this past Wednesday night. She brought these scrumptious miniature pears from the tree in their backyard. Little B just loved having his very own, perfectly-sized pear to eat. He kept asking for "More? Pey? More?"
N and I have known Tanya for almost as long as we have lived in upstate New York. When we first met her in 2007, she was just one of the teens in our church youth group. Over the years, our relationship has grown, and now, we cherish her as one of our sweetest friends in New York.
So here is a photo tribute to a dear friend who we will miss greatly when we leave. We'll be holding you to your promise to come visit us, Tanya!
