We made it.
The next morning our moving truck made it.
Two days later our cars made it.
My mind is rushing with emotions and feelings, reflections and so forth. So here is what comes out of my head at the moment.
The weather here is beautiful.
The kids are outside all day long.
We miss our friends in Maryland.
Caroline asked me who's house this is and when are we going home.
They have the most awesome car wash here. (our cars needed it after traveling cross country second story on a diesel)
My goodwill finds are serving me well in our new home.
Our new church congregation is huge!
we have roasted marshmallows every night in the back yard
we are going to mow our grass tomorrow - I can't wait!
All the girls miss our old house.
please don't comment on the size of my house, it just reminds of how much I have to clean
There are no bugs flying in our teeth when we stand outside
My new mailman's name is Louis. He had on jeans and a t-shirt and not the cute uniform Mike wore in Maryland.
My old mail man had a retinal detachment the week before we moved. I miss him and hope he is recovering.
It is fun to decorate our house
the clouds here in Denver are huge and fluffy
I saw a Cafe Rio
anytime someone hears that Jeff served in the Army they all say "Thank you for your service"
we miss our old swim team
i don't have to use the 12 inches underneath my bed to store 75% of my stuff! Yea for a linen closet
no one here has magnets all over the back of their cars telling everyone where they vacation and if their kids are on the honor roll
our new church building does not have beautiful wooden beehives inside or concrete ones out front (ahhh Kentlands!)
the mountains - ohh la la
milk is half the price at the grocery store
our neighbors are so nice and have brought us, dinner, breakfast, cookies, brownies, set up our trampoline, mowed our grass, fixed our sprinklers had the girls over for lunch
Annie Kate went to a sewing school today down the street in the darling ladies house
Jeff helped out with a medical emergency down the street our first morning here
Sally Jane's room is all yellow!
I am sad all of my girl friends can't run over to my house and tell me how high to hang the mirrors or if I should move my sofa to the left.
It can also be lonely
Caroline misses sleeping in the same room with Sally Jane
I fed 14 kids Popsicles today in the back yard
I feel like I am living in a dream
and I am trying to convince Jeff that the downstairs bathroom is going to be pink!
my guest room is lonely - want to visit?
Off to some more boxes calling my name!
