We are here and settling in. I am so thankful. Last Friday, I packed the kids and the dog in the car at 3am and drove the 10 hours to our new state. My husband drove the cat in his car the next day. The trip was long but my babies slept for the first 4 hours which made the day go very quickly. And everyone behaved, which made it a fun experience.
When we got here, my inlaws were waiting. They had their home all prepared for us. We spent the weekend with them. They are the most amazing parents. We feel very blessed. We had a great weekend.
Monday morning we got up and headed to our rental. The moving truck arrived and unloaded everything for us.
Since then, we have been BUSY! I have been unpacking, putting things in storage, doing laundry, attending Bible Study Fellowship, having dinner with friends/family, making phone calls, meeting with our architect, getting ERH settled in her new school (which she loves), tending to Pete who is battling a cold, grocery shopping, cleaning, visiting the lot our home will be built on, having my Mom over, laying exhausted on the couch, etc. It has been wild. But I am so thankful. This is home and I know we are supposed to be here.
My goal for the next few days is to finish unpacking, write thank you notes and get really settled. After we accomplish that, I want to get back into blogging. I also hope to get out and meet some new people.
To all my Ohio friends, I miss you and I think of you and pray for you daily. To all my friends here, I am so excited to be near you. I can not wait to see all of you. To my blog friends, I am so sorry my posts have been sporadic. I will return to normal postings soon:)
