Settling In.

(The view from our patio.)

Hello from sunny Florida!

I have been busy unpacking, playing on the patio with the kids, and keeping Jack from emptying every open box in the house so this post is going to be brief. I'm sleepy!

I absolutely love our new house. Mark did a wonderful job finding us a big home with all the amenities we were living without in Ohio. I know it sounds silly, but when I walked into the kitchen and saw our dishwasher, disposal switch, and refrigerator with water and ice in the door I think I squealed! And the covered patio at the back of the house is perfect for the kids (and Rocket). We have already spent hours out there riding bikes and pushing Jack on his firetruck. The boys love having the freedom to be loud and play on their outdoor toys, but I don't have to worry if the phone rings or I need to run inside because they are in an enclosed space.

The move was stressful, and we definitely wouldn't have made it without the help of my Dad and brother-in-law, Kenneth. My Dad was so helpful with the kids, and Kenneth kept us focused on getting the truck packed, and he drove the U-Haul from Cincy to Palm Bay. I don't know what we would have done without them!

I can't wait to go skinny dipping in that puddle you have behind your house. I hope that the neighbors enjoy the show!
