The EFM Feature

Since some readers have asked (and Nancy has heckled), no, I haven’t signed up with the other EFM, Evangelicals for Mitch. But that’s been about the only thing in my life that hasn’t changed recently. This summer I took a new job, moved back to my home state of Pennsylvania, and rejoiced with my wife at the fact that we will have a baby in February, just to pick a few. In particular, we moved two weeks ago and were in the Keystone State for only three days before departing on a long-planned anniversary trip. While the Frenches’ version of a romantic getaway is a political convention, my wife and I prefer big parks with few people, so we drove from San Jose to Seattle by way of Redwood National Park, the entire coast of Oregon, Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, and Olympic National Park. Did you know there are huge sand dunes in Oregon, and a rainforest in Washington? Me neither. What an amazing country we have.
And there are more changes on the horizon. This weekend I hope to buy a truck, we’re searching for a new church given our move, in just a couple weeks we will know whether Baby Mitchell is a girl or a boy, and before he or she arrives we hope to buy our first house. (In case you’re wondering, as many have, my preference for the baby is simple: healthy.)
All that, not to mention our crazy political world, aside, yes, I’m still on the Romney train. And inbetween perusing F150 listings and trying to figure out whether that most recent feeling was the baby moving or not, I plan to weigh in soon on all that’s been going on in this huge and awesome country of ours.
