Lincoln came over to play with Greta and I last week. The good news is that we got to spend some time with him, the bad news is the reason he was here. Chad dropped him off so he could rent a trailer... they have started packing unnecessary items to move to their future home... St. Louis.
We are excited for them; this is a great opportunity for Val's career and they will be much closer to some family. We are sad because they have become fast friends and are now leaving. Plus, Val is our kids' doctor. I was so excited to find a doctor we loved... now we will start that journey again.
At least we have until summer to get used to the idea... and we will always have blogging to keep us updated on each other's lives.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."
With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This is my favorite quote from the movie:
Morgan Freeman (as God) talking to the wife of Evan - "Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?"

I'm hoping that all of you had a better New Year's Eve than our family!
