Okay so back to Josh. We had his going away service last night at church. He's been here since he was 4 so these people are family and it was hard to see people cry and say how much he'll be missed. We took a ton of photos.
The church in Čakovec gave him a beautiful wood carving of the castle in our town and they had a verse and the name at the church carved at the bottom. Great gift.
It's crazy to see so many of our "kids" all grown up now, or at least they're big!
Anyhow, we've officially wished Josh well from the church here and then next step is teaching him to live in the USA. His big brother Cody is there so help so I think it'll be easier for him than it was for Cody.
I will say I almost cried this morning when I realized I was walking him up in his room for the last time. Wow, time is precious, wish I had known just how precious it was to wake him up each morning, I would have savored it a bit more.
YUCK! I totally got derailed this week with the stress of Josh leaving and getting life here in order before we return to the States. So my weigh-in this week is...+5 lbs. No, I'm not kidding. It's the honest, ugly truth. I ate what I wanted for the most part and now I'm paying the price. So now instead of being 5 lbs from goal I'm 10. Oh well, I have to deal with it, count my
So we are driving to the capital today and staying over night. With the snow and having to drive through the mountains to make it to the capital we decided it'd be much safer to just drive there today and take a shuttle in the morning. We fly out at 7:30am and we'll arrive int he great state of Texas at 9:30pm. Considering the hour time difference it's gonna be like a 20 hour trip. Then the next morning we have to get up and drive three hours to a meeting that night. What we were thinking? Anyhow, I'm gonna do my best to blog regularly and continue my weigh loss blogging.
Just be prepared....multitudes of photos to follow!!!
