We have arrived

In Kansas my friends. Who would have thought we would end up here? I sure didn't. Once upon a time, about 2 months ago, we printed out a map of the United States and proceeded to mark the places we wouldn't mind living. 2 colors were used in this process, green for the places we would like to live, and red for the areas we definitely wanted to avoid. Kansas was definitely red. But, life tends to be quite the jokester, and here I sit......writing this blog in Kansas.

This place has its own pretty though. It was quite mesmerizing driving through the endless flat farmlands. And, it's so fun to see and hear all the trains!

We drove through a tiny little beat up town called Glade, KS! Meant to be? I think yes.

We have amazing ward members here. They showed up with dinner and strong helping hands on Thursday when we got here. We had everything in the house in 45 min! We are feeling very blessed to already know such wonderful people here.

Our house is great! It's a 3 level condo with two bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a nice big hot pink basement. It definitely was not clean when we walked in but now that we have cleaned the carpets and wiped everything down, I think we are really really going to like it. Our landlord also told us we could paint, so that hot pink downstairs......ya...that will be gone. Who paints a huge basement completely hot pink? Some teenage girl with complete reign of the basement, thats who.

It's almost short sleeve weather here. its a warm winter they say, I'm ok with that.

Well, we are here, we are exhausted, but we are happy and excited for this adventure.
