Anyways, we went to church last Sunday evening and saw Emily there! We haven't seen her since we came to Texas, so it was very good to see a familiar Iowa face. I hope we didn't scare her away... sometimes it's a little wierd to have a family sortof 'drop' into your lap when you're not expecting it. I hope we can catch up to her again soon.
In an attempt to get plugged-in we have joined a 'community group' which meets tonight for the first time. The whole family will go, even though the kids think it's going to be a waste of time. I think all of us will benefit from getting to know new people & holding each other accountable. I'm expecting it to be a lot like a 'small group' that we had in Iowa.
Here are some pictures from last Sunday after church. I didn't take my camera TO church, so these pictures are on the way home. Some things I didn't catch on camera is the fact the ground & rocks are still warm at 7pm so I took my shoes off to walk to the car. I know, I know... me... without shoes is a miracle in itself. But I couldn't resist the warmth....
The church is right downtown so I took some pictures of the Capital of Texas. It's a beautiful light pinky-marble-limestone when you get up close to it.
I wanted you to see the complex of bridges that simply crop out of no where! There is a lot of traffic so these bridges are nice to have.
This picture is funny, the mexican guy was on some sortof scooter that didn't go very fast. I don't think it's street safe, but here he is going along a busy highway. It's usually the mexican people who do funny things, like load 9 people into a truck cab, or deck out their cars with fuzzy carpet in the windows, etc. I'll have to take my camera with me more often to get pics.
