family friday: settling in

Be sure to enter the "We're Finally Minnetonkans" Baby Moccasin Giveaway. You may enter once a day until the close of the giveaway on June 17th.

Our home is finally coming together. There is furniture in every room. And as the days pass, we unpack and use the rooms, things feel much more warm and cozy.

There is also a peaceful feeling here. Yah, there have been moments of "Oh my goodness, there is so much to do" panic and we bicker for a minute. But all in all, there is a level of peace. While our sleeping arrangements with the kids are not in place yet, we are all sleeping pretty good (not necessarily duration, but quality), which lends itself to a more peaceful environment.

It has been raining for the last week. Today more than other days. I woke up to thunder and lightening in the middle of the night. It felt safe to be in our home and under our covers. The rain is beautiful here and the greens more brilliant.

In other settling in efforts, Jonathan bought a second car. A prudent buy. A used Mazda 6 wagon that came in under budget. It's a beautiful, zippy car and certainly fun to drive.

We also changed our phone numbers. We must really be serious about being here.

Next is the drivers licenses.

This morning we are waiting for the garage door people to come by and help us with new remotes. After they arrive, Hadley and I will go to her first My Gym class. We'll see how it measures up to Gymboree. I'm sure she will love it.

Once our home is a little more together (when the last of our furniture arrives), I will post photos.
