Getting out

After being here only a few days I made sure to find my way to Target.  I was craving something familiar and needed to get out on the town.

We took the boys to an egg hunt put on by youth in my parents ward.  After being there for a few seconds someone came up and introduced herself to me.  I couldn't help myself and started sobbing as she put her arm around me and said, "Welcome, I know how hard it is to move".

This past weekend we went to dinner with Dan's brother, Sister and her husband.  I was having a minor panic attack about leaving my boys with anyone for the first time after we moved.  Luckily they were excited to meet their cousins and had a blast while they were babysat.

Yesterday we spent a little time at the mall and let the kids play on the toys.  Jace wasn't shy about finding someone 3 times his size to try and bully.  Camden found a adorably bossy little blonde girl to be his "new friend".

Today a sweet neighbor friend invited the boys and I to attend a puppet show at the library.  My heart was pounding out of my chest as she unloaded her grandson from the car and Camden asked, "Can he be my buddy?"

I'm trying to adjust, and remember that "It takes a couple seconds to say Hello, but forever to say Goodbye".

I'm glad people are being nice to you guys! It always makes me resolve to extend myself more when I hear stories like that.
