We moved!!!

Well, we finally moved into our new home. Oh, how we love it. Space, glorious space. No more hiking up two flights of stairs with Henry and groceries. Jumping, squealing, early morning laundry all without worrying about the neighbors being annoyed. Trees, stars, birds, a backyard. Life is very good.
The move itself was a little tough. I highly recommend not moving when your husband is working the night shift on a surgery rotation. But it can be done. Just hire some guys for heavy lifting and make good friends with a dolly for furniture moving on your own. Oh, and make sure your child has a movie they are willing to watch over and over and over again. In our case, curious george goes to space. If you ever want to hear it, Henry or I can quote it for you.
We have now been in our house for two gloriuos weeks. The boxes are unpacked and waiting recycling. The move is a distant memory and we LOVE our home. Here's a quick tour. Come and visit for the real deal.

This picture shows dell watering the plants we just planted and also is to show a little of what our backyard views are. All those trees are Stone Oak Parkway. A fun little walking/biking trail that winds for about a mile up to playground (we have a playground at the start of the trail just around the corner from our home) and then if you cross the street there's another 3 miles of trails plus two "bear caves." No real bears, but kids get a kick out of them. The elementary school is also at the end of the first segment of trail. The middle school is 1/4 mile down the trail the other way. The trail that direction becomes more primative once you get to the middle school, but it's fun single track biking for maybe a mile and we found a small cliff that looks climbable as long as you have good mosquito repellent. Supposedly they will be "improving" the single track area sometime soon, but we're in no hurry.
