New Everyday

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been here for 3 1/2 months! In some ways, I feel like we just got here. But we are also finding our new normal.

We are so happy to have a few consistent friends that the kids love to play with – like Olivia and Everett, who live down the street:



We have also gone to the same Bible study every week since the end of February. They have a wonderful program for homeschooled kids, birth to 18. 0-3 year olds stay in the nursery and have a great teacher with a structured program, while teenagers help teach the next-youngest age group. (Tweens, if you wondered, are in charge of cleaning the church every Wednesday.) Last week was our last week of the study before a summer break. Russell’s group performed the Daniel in the lions’ den story. Russell was a very ferocious lion!


We have also had a few playdates with some of the moms and kids from the Bible study. Meredith and Abby are only a few weeks apart in age.


We also can’t say enough about our new house and our new neighborhood.

We love lunches on the screened porch:


Our basement playroom is big enough for the toys and all the kids at the same time! It also fits our school table – we are so grateful for all the space!




The big kids both have bikes now, and Russell love riding around the block! (Meredith has only gotten down our street so far, but she’s still practicing!)


Everything is still new, but it’s beginning to feel more routine, if not like home. One step at a time.
