Settling In To Paradise

Well we are officially moved out and set up in our new little home in Monroe. I think I was a bit worried about things because sometimes when you have something pictured in your mind for so long it is a bit of a disappointment when it happens...In this case this life seems to suit me even better than I had dreamed! I love it here! I sigh all of the time and my husband and kids know that after the sigh come the words, "I love it here!" I wake up every morning and have that peaceful vacation feeling come over me. The noises I hear are roosters crowing (I didn't know they did it all day!), geese honking, and quiet. My boys play together all day! We have a magical storytelling tree and they named all of the other trees-Dickens, Lewis, Beethoven, Handel, Bob and I can't remember the other ones. Lyndon and I had an anniversary Saturday and we had the two most amazing girls here to watch the boys. We went to dinner at our town restaurant (yummy) and then went and saw a home that is our same floor plan (it's even better than I hoped!) Now this moving thing hasn't been the fun little "project" I had envisioned! With the five boys, two yards, a home to clean and organize, plus that little moving thing I am exhausted! My boys walked down to our park for "lunch at the park", the baby is asleep and all is quiet. Sigh...."I love it here..."

Oh, I am SO SO happy for you! Yes, it is so much work, but how wonderful that you are so happy and at peace with your decision and the move! I would love to see some photos. My dream is to move to a small, quiet town. It really is. Big trees. Quiet. I'm SO happy for you!

I'm so glad you got to go out to dinner. I really wish I could have helped. How did you find great babysitters so quickly? You are so lucky. I can't wait to see the plans!

That's great that you are all moved and settled. Sound peaceful and heavenly. Where the heck is Monroe? I haven't actually ever heard of it :) Love ya.

I am glad you are settling in...for a while. Aaron had Lyndon over today but I was out and missed visiting with him. Aaron said they stunked the boys at a game of basket ball.

I'm so happy that things are going well--moving is such a huge stress, but exciting at the same time. We've been in our home for about a year and a half and are in heaven to--without the rooster, geese and trees. But hey no more police helicopters flying over our house everynight :)

I am glad you like Monroe. There once was a time I wouldn't have liked it but now I think that I would. Sorry I was no help for you with your move.
