Some of the activities of our first “business day” here in Emporium include:

  • Registering Elijah for first grade (he’s taking his reading placement test as I use the internet at the elementary school).
  • Putting Merry on the waiting list for preschool
  • Purchased and put in a mailbox (the parsonage has never gotten mail delivery before)
  • Setting up internet at the house
  • Unpacking more boxes
  • Hanging curtains (some from our house a few locations ago fit here perfectly!!)
  • Choosing some paint for Merry’s room
  • Spending time on the phone with church members
  • Getting a washer and dryer (I’ll have to do a separate post about this blessing)
  • Loading boxes and boxes of books onto shelves (this is one area of our life that I can say has officially gotten out of hand!)  Someone who helped unload our U-Haul said that perhaps we should open up a library.

Some things that made us smile since we’ve moved here:

  • Some church members took apart our box spring to get it up our stairs then put it back together in our bedroom, then reported to us that we would never be allowed to leave . . .at least not with our box spring!
  • The front porch had to be taken apart to get the couch in the front door, I guess we REALLY are here for sure now!!
  • Hearing the creek from our front porch
  • Beautiful spring-like weather in January here in the mountains of NORTHERN Pennsylvania!
