It has taken me almost a month to get settled in, but we unloaded the last box on Saturday. I am so glad to be done with it all! But I am even happier that we are all together again – under the same roof – every night. My wonderful husband gets to play with our kids everyday and tuck his babies into bed every night. How sweet it is!
We love Minneapolis so far! The weather here is amazing! We have great shopping and entertainment. There’s something new and exciting to do every weekend.
We found a church that all of us love. Our pastor in Tulsa gave us a recommendation for a church in this area, and we are so glad that he did. It feels like home!
We have great neighbors on both sides. On one side, our neighbors have three kids, ages 5, 3 and almost 1. Our kids love playing with them. It’s nice to have friends right next door, and the kids run back and forth between our two houses and yards everyday. Steve and I enjoy their parents’ company as well. On the other side, our neighbors are grandparents with grandkids the ages of 7 and 9. They really enjoy our kids too.
The kids love being here. They have quickly and easily settled into our new house and have quickly made new friends. They miss having MiMi and PopPop so close, and Claire misses Analise like crazy. But they love seeing and doing new things and being with their daddy everyday.
Now for some pictures.
We are having a great time being a family, doing ordinary things like fixing dinner together and playing together and putting our kids to bed each night. I am so glad that we made this move!
Pictures of the house and more info on the kids soon.
