Last week was a bit of a whirlwind.
We bought the home we will raise our family in, which was terribly exciting, but Mike and I did all the moving on our own. As in, we'd put the kids to bed and move furniture in single digit temperatures. Yeah... It pretty much sucked.
The toughest part, however, was not having any help with the kids. Somehow we managed to keep them fed, clothed, and properly pampered in between moving tables, couches, beds, and so on.
I'm pretty sure we achieved rock star status by all that we accomplished on our own.
Two weeks ago we were under a winter storm warning with a predicted snow total of 4-6 inches. Will and I went out to purchase a sled and snow boots. He was so excited. Unfortunately, we got a grand total of 0. Will kept looking out the window and sadly asking, "Where's my snow?"
Well, the snow decided to wait until after our move. Our first full day in the new house, with only unpacking on the schedule, we awoke to a blanket of white.
Loving the woods behind our house.
It was perfect.
We live on a cul-de-sac and our neighborhood has sidewalks and hiking trails and parks. So far we are loving it.
Will was determined to pack his backpack with the perfect toys for a walk with Ellie.
The setting up part of this move has been slow going. The two kiddos aren't letting me accomplish much during the day. But we will get there. All in good time.
