On Thursday we moved hundreds of boxes and all our of furniture into our new home in Crofton, Maryland. (With the help of an excellent crew of movers!) I was able to find enough sheets to make the beds and we had a great nights sleep. The mountains of boxes and packing paper in every room are a bit overwhelming, but I can see the potential and I think we're all excited to build a life in this new place.
On Friday the kids and I drove from Maryland to my parents' home in Olcott, NY. (Lincoln came too.) We enjoy visiting them every summer and this weekend seemed like a good time -- completely spontaneous, but fitting. The boxes will be there when we return. We'll make appointments to get registered for school late next week. Claire will begin soccer practice. Until then...
we needed a break from the moving saga.
So, we're eating all our favorite foods, wading in the lake, going out for ice cream, exploring in the attic and enjoying good Grma and Grpa time!
