The country girls – who’ve gone to the city – go to the country | Day 6

Standard

Because that makes sense right?

It has been a tad exhausting trying to figure things out in every single situation. Even in our house, trying to find the toilet paper was a tough mental task for a few days. And when you have to cook three meals a day in a tiny kitchen…full of boxes…it’s like playing life size Jenga every time you want some cinnamon.

First, pick up one box from a tall stack, then move it to another stack.  Open the next one labeled “kitchen”, find the toilet paper (that was cushioning your stand mixer), yell a “Hallelujah!” and run the toilet paper upstairs.  Come back to the kitchen, and find another unopened box. Then forget what you were looking for in the first place. <—- True story.

Finding something that feels “normal” for each one of us has been important. For Chris, the Eagles games and fans have been just fine.  For me, walking through a Costco felt like home. For Kami…we’re still looking for her thing. But for Chloe, who has a challenging time with change…this weekend concert was just the ticket.

Bonuses to Suzuki violin instruction, all the teachers teach the same songs, the same way. And all the kids play the same songs the same way. So jumping into a concert at a Pumpkin Patch wasn’t a problem. And we happened to meet a great teacher to start lessons with!

Next up is another concert at the end of the month downtown (gulp! Better get the parallel parking down by then!) at the Kimmel Center. Hosted by the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra!?!?!

This post is part of a 31 day series called Fall in Philadelphia. If this is your first stop along the way, I am so glad you’re here and I hope today’s post brought you a little warmth and coziness. This journey is best taken from the very beginning as each day’s posts are pretty much *live* as I’m living a journey of leaving the deep South (my entire life!) and jumping into the big city. All of the blog posts in this series will be linked together on the Fall in Philadelphia landing page. Click here to be taken there.  Thanks for stopping by!

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
