Making the move!!!

I have finally arrived in the big city. I rode down in a van, with all my stuff in the back. It was a long trip, especially when you consider it in doll years!! Once we got here and unloaded, it got a bit easier. That's me, sitting on the luggage. It didn't fit in two suitcases, like someone told me it should, but I didn't want to forget anything!

After we arrived, I decided to get unpacked. I had so much fun organizing everything. I'm in an apartment style dorm-room... there are three girls in my room. I'm still amazed every time I look out my window. I see these skyscrapers! Do you know how much taller they are then me?? I thought rulers were tall...

I'm having a hard time getting used to the security, too... unlocking every door before I enter will be something of an adjustment. It all seems a bit daunting now, but I'm sure that will change. Within a few weeks I'll be walking around like I've lived here all my life. Or, rather... being carried around... but you get the idea. :)

The most amazing thing about this place is the people. I'm surrounded by those that love and want to follow my Savior. Opening sessions with prayer, or handing out Bible studies at a meeting... it's all evidence of this amazing emphasis on Christ.

Well... I guess I should sign off for now. I'm might go do something... somewhere... at some point. Or maybe just sit around and look at the skyscrapers... :)

With love from an absolute doll,

  1. When thinking about how much stuff you took with you, you need to remember that you need to be REALLY nice to me for carrying most of your stuff out and putting it in said van.
