It's been a long time

Wow, it's been almost 2 years since I've written.  It's been a busy time.  We had just moved into our house and Kyla had just started a new school.  So much has happened since then, there's no way to recap it all.  What I hope to do is start writing more often.  This might become part of my Sunday morning ritual.  Run, newspaper & breakfast, and then blog about the previous week.  Sounds easy enough.......

First Day of School

Not only is today the first day of school, but it's the first day at a new school. Kyla has been stressing about this all summer. Well the day finally came and it went really well. Almost too well. Can't wait to see her get off the bus and hear all about her day!

Last day of summer vacation

And what a summer it's been. We moved in on July 1st and instantly felt at home. We went on vacation with the Mecchi's again this year. This time it was to Ocean City, NJ to a house right on the beach. As expected, it was a great vacation!

Tomorow school starts. Kyla is nervous, or as she says, "freaked out" about starting at a new school. Luckily Nikki is in her class. Kyla will be taking the bus to and from school and wants to take it on the first day as opposed to me dropping her off. We're so glad we got here early enough in the summer that she was able to really get to know the kids on the street. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.....

New house

We finally sold our house on June 1st and were moving into our new house by July 1st. It was a whirlwind month. We LOVE our new house and neighbors! Within a week of being here Kyla was already sleeping over at the neighbors. She is always outside playing with the other kids. It's so great for her to have other girls around her age to play with. She now just runs out of the house instead of waiting for me and sticking to me like glue. She just jumped right in to life on the new street. It's like we're living on a commune, and in a really good way. The kids are always outside and adults come and go. We are so happy here and feel really lucky.

No news

It's been so long since I have posted. We're having a long winter and it's depressing. We listed our house again in mid January. We've had lots of showings and a few open houses. Up until last weekend, we still hadn't had an offer. Technically, we still don't. But we think an offer is on it's way, Paul actually said he expected it in the next week. Fingers crossed that this couple from Albuquerque, NM puts in a reasonable offer. Then we can put in an offer on the house that's the closest we can come to a dream house without winning the lottery. Other than that, just alot of this has been going on.....

We've had a really good winter break so far. It started with a visit to the vet for Bella. We found out she is an obese cat! She is now on a diet. We hope to have her down by 2lbs by her visit next year. A few days before Christmas we went to an ice carving party. It was so cool to see guys take chain saws to blocks of ice and transform them into beautiful sculptures.

Christmas Eve and Christmas day were full of family, laughs, and good food. Felicity and an American Girl Coconut were the big hits. Here are just a few highlights.
