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..."
