A Wild Week

Still reeling. Since David received his job offer Tuesday night, our feet have not quite come down to earth. It has been fun and exciting and a little crazy, too! 
David was able to spend the day at Ellison yesterday meeting the staff and students. He loves it already. Everyone has been super friendly and welcoming. 
Tonight he and I were invited to attend the Spring Show for the Ellison Emeralds Drill Team. We had a great time. All of the students and their parents welcomed us into the Ellison family with open arms. 
Again, I can't say cRaZy enough! But, we are having an unbelievably great time sinking into this. Sunday afternoon we are headed to the Ellison baseball banquet and bringing our two little eagles along for the fun. 
Around the house, we welcomed Daddy home on Wednesday with our mini celebration. 

We filled the laundry room with green and white balloons that would come tumbling out on him when he opened the door from the garage.

I went to bed that night with a major headache that I now attribute to blowing up 40+ balloons on my own! The boys' little lung capacities just couldn't quite hack it!

We're getting our green on! David came home with Eagle wear, stickers and more! I headed out today and ordered the boys their own Eagle shirts. Looks like there's going to be a lot of green in our lives from now on! So fun!

Something new to little old us....media. A Waco television station came out to interview David and he made the news! We were also amazed to pick up the Thursday paper and find the above article on the front page! Seriously. When we make it back to earth, we'll let you know. But, this has been such an incredible time. Thank you again for all the sweet well wishes, notes and emails. Please keep our little foursome in your prayers during this time of major transition as we grasp a hold of what's to come.

Congrats! And on the media attention as well. They aren't too bad as long as you tell them what they want to hear! ;)

Enjoy your time in orbit!

Ohhhh, Melissa! I keep forgetting to tell you that David actually got a couple of extra Eagle stickers for you and Dee. I'll get them to you in the morning. On second thought, they may just show up on your car!
