We've only been here two weeks and yet it feels like this has always been home. It's so weird to think only a month ago we were cleaning up Christmas, getting ready to move. They say home is where the heart is, but I beg to differ: home is where your kids are. :) The kids adjusted great. In fact Declan, who has always been excited for whatever adventure is scheduled for the day, never seems to want to leave this house. And, whenever we are in the car he continually asks, "can we go to our new house?" The only hiccup - if you could call it that - has been a repeated request by a certain little boy for me to paint his room orange. The jury is still out on that...but I'm leaning toward a yes ;)
Just a few random moments from the past couple of weeks -
Declan and Lexi love their jack-and-jill bathroom. They had so much fun one night putting stickers in random places and then running to the mirror to look at them.
We couldn't really consider this home until we made some cookies :)
The game of chase/peek-a-boo has always been a favorite, but has reached new levels here. Our downstairs is basically one big circle - that combined with the wood floors lends itself to some crazy games of chase. Add a red balloon to the mix, and you've got yourself a perfect evening activity.
And the park is our favorite part of our new routine. We pretty much hit it every evening. The kids love it. I love it! We've met lots of nice people here too - all of which "warn" me about Halloween within the first minute of our conversation. I'm pretty pumped. Is it too early to start thinking of Halloween costumes? I kid, I kid.
