We packed our house into two PODS on Thursday, July 30th. My brother, Rob, says we were able to fit 10 lbs of stuff in a 5 lb bag! He has been a great support, and I am thankful for his love and friendship. We stayed at Rob & Lorri's house on Thurs and Fri, and had family over for a cook-out around the pool on Fri night. Marcus and Jenny came by, and everyone had a great time. My friend Marcus set-up a seminarian fund for me, "Allison Educational Fund", so that friends and family can support us financially through the church or through SunTrust Bank.
On Saturday, Aug 1st, we went back to our house to pack the car. Another attempt to fit 10 lbs of stuff in a 5 lb bag! LOL Once again my brother bailed us out and offered to ship what wouldn't fit! We said our good-byes to Rob and Mawmaw, and made our way across the state to see Stephanie. Steph was proud to show-off her apartment and cooked us a great stir-fry dinner! I am not a fan of tofu, but it's nice to know that she is capable of making and eating something other than Ramen Noodles. :) We went over to visit Judy, and on Sunday we all went over to spend the day with Stephanie and Cristina. We hung out by the pool, played Boggle, tried to pet Ruby, went to the mall where Steph and Heather made a karaoke CD, went to Tijauna Flats for dinner, and finished evening with an icee at Jeromiah's.
The outpouring of love we have received from our family and friends is amazing. There have been tears and hugs, and smiles and laughter. We know the Lord is with us and guides us, and that our family and friends are angels who love, support and encourage us on "Our Faithful Journey"!
