Home Sweet Home

Its official!  Home sweet home is now our 5th Wheel!  No good blogging photos for awhile-this one is from my iPhone/stolen from Facebook.  My iMac (4th love of my life) is now packed away since it doesn't fit so well in here, so I am using our dinosaur iBook that is as old as Boone.  I am VERY hopeful that I'll be the owner of a Mac Book Pro sometime in October.  

We are all settling in fairly well and very happy we upgraded our living quarters earlier this year.  This 5th Wheel is much easier for all 4 of us to live in than our old one would have been.  Of course, we are also very grateful to my inlaws for letting us take up their driveway and take over their kitchen every night.  It is really good to be able to cook for us inside.  Of course with football practice (Josh), soccer practice (boys), and me being sicky, there hasn't been a whole lot of cooking so far.  

The boys are a bit emotional but they are also feeling under the weather so it is hard to tell exactly why.  Boone isn't nearly as enamored with school this year, we are still trying to problem solve that one.  Poor kid - not only did we have the move but he started full day school this year in a temporary location since his school is being remodeled.  He doesn't have any of his closest buddies in his class (which has positive and negative consequences) and his teacher is new to Southgate too (I do think she is great so far though).  The night before school started, his 2nd front tooth came out.  My kid is SO self conscious about his appearance (thank goodness he isn't a girl or we'd be dealing with eating disorders etc. for sure) so he is definitely smiling less.  

My little Brody is also pretty emotional lately.  The other day, when I explained that there were new people living in our house he started wailing "I miss my HOOOOME!"  So sad!  I am trying to be understanding and patient and reflect on how this must feel in the world of a 4/6 year old, but sometimes I get frustrated.  The benefit in the long run is going to be so worth it and they will have so much!  But 8 months away is a lifetime for little folks.

So on we go into our year of adventure!  I'll start to post some photos and ideas that I have for the house so you all can help me finalize decisions as we go!
