Quick Update

We are still here. I don't have internet yet or at least not my own.. We'll leave it at that. It should be set up tomorrow.

Wow, it's hard to believe that it's only been a week since Emma's preschool graduation. We've been a long way since then. I'll try to post those pictures and pictures of Chloe (she's 9 months today!) as soon as I get a spare second which actually might not be for a while. There is so much to do! I am pretty tired but more because Chloe has had a cold and cries if I put her down than because of the move. I'm wondering if she has an ear infection. We may be trying out the new pediatrician quicker than I expected. I left her in the church nursery on Wed. and that didn't turn out so well. I'm wondering if the girl that was in there will ever have children now. It's really odd for Chloe. I keep telling people, "I promise she is usually very happy". It's not the best way for people to meet her. Hopefully she will get to feeling better soon!

I've got most everything unpacked. I've got to get a couple of sets of shelves to get things organized like I want them. There is still a lot to do but we're getting there. Emma laid claim to the pink bedroom when she looked at the pictures and since Chloe, can't talk, she got the blue room. It's going to have to be painted pretty soon. I hope it doesn't warp her too much in the mean time. I guess it's better than having a boy in a pink room. Other than that, that will be all the painting that I do for a while. We still have a lot of things to take care of like drivers licenses and license plates. There are so many things to be done when you move to a new place.

We have been overwhelmed by how everyone has welcomed us with open arms. The church really knows how to make a person feel at home (I did get a picture of that sign for you Susan. I'll get it posted soon I hope). I'm excited about that not only for me but it is also a place I will be excited to tell my friends about (when I make some that is). But so far, I'm really enjoying getting to know the girls at church. I'm very aware though that we can't stay only within the church walls and I'm looking forward to meeting people "on the outside" too. We've met some of our neighbors and everyone just seems super friendly. The city has some really cool things that I've been reading about. It has a greenway, and an awesome recycling program, and a recreational center with an indoor track and fitness rooms and all sorts of stuff and the membership is only $150 a year for a family. It seems to be a wonderful place to put down roots. Hopefully, that is what we'll do God willing. See, I have learned my lesson :). Anyway, that's all I've got for you right now. I've got to get to bed. Chloe hasn't been sleeping well and my time to catch some z's very well might be limited.

Blessings,
Dana

I am glad that you are getting unpacked and settled. Lu and I will be your friends "on the outside!!" When you get settled, give us a shout and we will meet at a park. Don't forget to email if you want some help with registration. This IS a great place to plant your roots. So glad you are here.
