We are moved in!
So, to keep ourselves busy as most Moms do during the school year, we decided to have Hannah take dance at the Decatur School of Ballet and Chase is taking Mommy and Me at Atlanta Gymnastics once a week. They both love it!
Hannah is in heaven as her girlfriend from school and dance lives across the street. Its really cute. She ask to play with her the second we pull in from school. Although we have only had a couple "play dates", it has been nice to know that she has a friend she can play with along with a few others on the street. Once we get a little more settled, I am sure "play dates" will come a lot more often. At least, I hope! I take that back, maybe not.
Our storage items arrived safely from Miami last Monday. Yes, when I say Miami, I mean the items we put in storage when we moved from Miami, Florida five years ago. We have not seen it since then so it was definitely a surprise to find some things we totally forgot about after all that time. It was 3,700 lbs; two bedroom sets and a dining room table along with misc. other items but most importantly...there were beds! So, after those items arrived, we could officially move in. Although we currently don't have some basic things like lamps, towels, silverware, plates or glasses...all of these items should be coming from Kenya in the next month or so. Don't worry though, we have borrowed plenty and are doing fine. We actually don't need much more but isn't that how it always goes. You realize how little you really "need" in life and then you still have another 4,000 lbs of storage "stuff" coming...and you have no idea what you will do with it all. But because of our life and moving as often as we do, both Tom and I felt like it would be a good idea to sort through it all now that we have or own place. That way we wont have to wait ten years before we see the things we put in storage initially. I am glad we did it. However, this might be another ... ask me again in a few months question when we get the rest of our storage from both Kenya and Israel and I have no place to put any of it. Garage Sale here we come!!
Pics of the new place coming soon. For now, enjoy the kids at their new after-school activities. By the way, please remind me to move Piper's food bowl that is now sitting right next to the computer... it smells horrible, gross!
