up and running...

After two weeks of no internet we're up and running again. It amazed me how dependant I was on the internet. I found myself wanting to look up directions to places around town, needed to order somethings for the kids room, researching doctors in the area and had to find different ways of doing it. Even though I felt a little disconnected from everything I kind of liked not having internet. I was able to accomplish so much and times I waste on the computer was spent playing with the kids or unpacking boxes. But don't get me wrong...I'm glad to have it back. 


It seems like a lifetime ago that we packed up the moving truck and started our journey to Idaho. It was so fun seeing our new house for the first time and watching the kids run through with such excitement at their new rooms and a backyard to play in. The weather here is incredible. We welcomed fall on September first and went from 90 degrees to high 60's. The trees are slowly starting to turn colors and I'm loving it. 


I'm thoroughly enjoying my garden and have had fresh tomatoes almost every day....


I'm also able to keep fresh flowers in my house. I have rose bushes, hydrangea bushes, and many others that I need to learn about. 

My parents and grandparents are a huge help in unloading boxes and getting things in their places. I know I'd barely be unpacked if they weren't here helping. We stayed with them the first couple nights until we got the rooms settled and on our first night in our home I thought it was only appropriate to have potatoes for dinner...

It's a lot to adjust to though. I'm missing family and friends more than I imagined and having to remind myself daily that this was God's plan for our family. Elijah asks everyday if we can go to our old house and play with our friends. He's having a hard time sleeping here and almost every night gets in bed with us. I'm thankful that Vanessa doesn't understand. She is as happy as can be here and would play outside all day if I would let her. 


Our new house...

I'll post more pictures soon...I need to remember where I put my other lens.

This is great! I'm glad that the move went well and that you are settling in. It made me cry as I thought about us moving back to CA in a year or so for seminary and leaving all our friends behind! I'm sure that you are seeing the grace of God a lot right now.... and I know that we will see His grace too!

Sounds lovely. All of it. Even the snuggle bug in bed. But most especially the Autumn weather. Surprisingly, here in Tulsa the weather has FINALLY cooled down to the 80's during the day and 50's at night. THIS is my kind of weather.
You make me jealous of the garden AND the flowers. One day soon when we move into THE house we plan on staying at for years, I'll do a little of both.

Gorgeous house! Glad you are getting all settled in. Amen to the weather you've got going on there. I'm a little jealous to be honest. My house feels like it's taken on a greenhouse effect. We are all melting. Come on Fall!!!
