It’s officially done and over. We have moved and spent the last few weeks cleaning, organizing, napping, breaking down boxes, wondering how we have accumulated so. much. stuff, napping again because of the overwhelming feelings of a task too large, and settling in.
I can now say our home feels like home again! The kitchen has been reopened for business and lots of sugary things have been coming out those doors. My girls have decided baking is fun, and who are we to squelch their learning and practicing of such an important art?! Ha!
We have explored the area we live in and find it to be beautiful and convenient to get around. We have discovered a local bakery run by a foreigner who knows her way around an oven. We have had pizza and bagels and apple pies while sitting in comfy chairs listening to praise music. I do believe the girls and I have found our homeschool hangout!
And because of all the treats, Cam and I have started running again and much to our delight found that there is a running track that follows the coast. So, as the sun rises above the swaying palm trees, we can comfortably jog on the padded path as we watch the waves roll in. I can’t really imagine much that can top that for exercise! Well, besides NO exercise.
Now that we are unpacked, it is time to pack again for a 5 month voyage to AMERICA! Yes!!
