My first week in Alaska

It is hard to believe I have been in Alaska for just over a week.  Last weekend I was anxious about whether I would find a place suitable for my family before I return home on the 30th.  Now here I am with a week behind me, a lease for a rental home that is more than suitable for us, and a postal address in Alaska.  I praise God!  This week I also began learning the ins and outs of my new job, a computer medical records system, and met many new friends that I am loving.  On Saturday afternoon I wondered around the area with two of my new coworkers seeing the sights.  Last night I went to dinner with one of my colleagues and enjoyed it very much.  I can tell I am going to make some great friends here.

Here is a link to our new rental home.  It is on the market to be sold, so it has a link to a realty site.

This week my dh, Tim, headed to Illinois with the children.  He had a dreaded time of it on the way as they got caught in a terrible snow storm, but after riding it out several hours he managed to get in front of it.  They spent a day with my sister Becky and her family in Wichita, KS.  My other sister and her family also came down to visit.  They had a lovely restful day.  On Sunday they drove on to Illinois and stayed with Tim's parents until this morning.  They were able to see several on Tim's side of the family and also reconnect with old friends.  We used to live there until 4.5 years ago when we moved to Colorado.

Tomorrow I may visit a Messianic congregation for the first time in Kenai while I take my Sabbath rest.  I am also considering taking a drive and enjoying some of the area around here that I haven't visited yet.

I hope you all are having a great week also.
