okay...so i won't bother trying to come up with anything witty. should something pop into my head while i'm typing, i'll certainly include it, but considering the current chaos i like to call 'life' - simply getting in a post is an accomplishment in itself!
what chaos you ask...well, i just began a new job this past september, while we were packing up our belongings and moving into our new house. with that new job came several meetings where i was getting an idea of the new 'crew' i'd be working with as well as this week and a half long stint of 'full-time' work which has me working with a team of people. we are sweeping the coast from one end to the other and testing each and every kindergarten student, getting an idea of the level of learning with which they are entering school. ...sounds fun right?! well, it's half way done and my girls (and jim) couldn't be more excited! i don't have any idea how i survived working 5 days/week last year!! by God's grace...for sure! and also, by His grace, i am blessed to have gotten a job this year that allows me (most of the year) to spend my days with the girls, and be working at night!
...and that's the abridged version!! but we're surviving...and thriving! we're here in our home that we have been waiting to be in for over 3 months! we're here and settling in, enjoying being 'just us 4', exploring our neighborhood, trying to put our own stamp on this place! oh right...and working full-time...for the moment;)
so...not too sure how else to segway into a smattering of photos other than to say...get a load of our new place!!
