We made it (mostly) to the new house! There is still a lot of stuff at the old place to be moved, sorted, discarded and we will need to do a thorough cleaning before turning the keys over, but the bulk of our possessions and all living creatures have transitioned quite nicely. The new house is about half the size of the other, but we’re converting the back portion of the garage to a multipurpose room/storage area. We went from over a half acre of lawn to a small yard that is mostly trees. I’ve always thought that lawns were a waste of time, space and resources.
The entire neighborhood our new home is located in is crawling with squirrels. They’re bold, fast and funny to watch. They literally knock on our back doors for food. The girls cats and dog are glued to the sliding doors being amused by the fearless little critters.
A3 started at her new middle school this week. So far she seems to be doing well, but as expected, she misses her friends. I took this picture of her in front of one of the murals during our initial tour.
Our phone numbers and email addresses remain the same, but if anyone should need our new physical address then please let me know and I’ll email it. Cheers, my friends!
