Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain…..

They weren't kidding when they wrote that lyric!

Hello!  We are here, computer set up, beds put together, lots of boxes unpacked and lots to go.

So far, things I have found out about living in Oklahoma…

  • it is really windy
  • the air is very sweet smelling, fresh and clean
  • I never imagined I could love a hay meadow so much
  • there is a small creek (ok, uh drainage) that is accross the street and down a little hill that the kids love exploring.  They named it the Cliff of Doom.
  • Fenway loves to go outside, but doesn't run away.
  • thunderstorms are really beautiful and impressive
  • and very scary when you are the only adult in the house at 2 am.
  • thank the Lord for DirecTV and wireless.
  • everyone is so friendly
  • everyone looks at us like we have 2 heads when we say we have moved here from CA
  • kinda the same way everyone looked at us in CA when we said we were moving to OK
  • my husband ADORES his new job
  • he is cute when he ADORES things
  • I miss everyone at home at times so much I ache
  • the kids are doing pretty well- we have had a few weep sessions, but they really are great.
  • I am so proud of them
  • We tried 2 churches.  Eh.  One had earplugs outside the door in case the music was too loud.
  • the music was too loud.
  • plus they had movie type seats with cup holders.
  • this house is becoming home
  • it is so beautiful it takes my breath away
  • our neighborhood is great
  • kids can ride their bikes, scooters, walk all over
  • the stars are the brightest I have seen in a long time
  • so is the moon
  • there is NOTHING like a sunset over the hills in OK- really!  (Jeannie was right)
  • the drive to the market and the kids school includes a trip past a long-horn bull farm.  It is now my very favorite drive ever.
  • I love my bed.
  • God has been so good to us I can't see straight.
  • Cows are cute.

  1. Oklahoma has hills? I thought it was just “plains”!
    Congratulations on your new surroundings and I know things will be getting better for the kids.

  2. Are you trying to recruit new CA neighbors? Shameless! And really great to hear that you’re doing so well, despite the inevitable adjustments. Miss you!

  3. The first time I visited OK before Will and I got married, I was cracking myself up with the jokes that OK does have mountains…they just call them speed bumps 🙂 I also had a joke about our dogs were bigger than their cows until we drove out of OKC into the “country” and I saw some realllllly big cows. We stopped for gas and I was wearing a skirt….the gust caught me off guard and some folks got a show.
    Welcome home!

  4. Glad to hear you’re settling in. And the church hunt part… well, that was toughest for me 8 years ago… then God reminded me he brought us all to NC for a reason, not just Rob. And planted us in the church of His dreams when I started listening with my heart. Praying that He’ll lead you “home” too!!!!

  5. You had me until the cows are cute part. I beg to differ. They smell. LOL! Cupholders in church??? AMEN!!!! LOVE IT! Im gonna request that. I hate that I have to worry about spilling my cappuccino! :o)

  6. JB… So glad things are going well. Keep these posts coming. I love hearing about what you and the fam are doing. Want to see other pics too. Enjoy and keep smiling. Miss you!
