I found a few pictures of the moving truck. It was huge and somehow we filled it ALL the way up. The kids loved the truck.
We play at the beach whenever we can. It's in walking distance. When we get there I admit I feel a Little envious of the parents that have lawn chairs and books in their hands. I haven't figured out how to carry Titus, push Adele, encourage Garret and Spencer along and get a lawn chair there. The kids love it so much though that it is worth the effort of getting there. And it's beautiful.
The beach also has a park by it and a clubhouse with toys for the kids. They have potlucks and activities. It's a fun place to live. It's not where we will be forever but we plan to enjoy it while we are here.
Adele (and the others too) are missing their cousins. If we say anything about basketball she says "kyle basketball" if we say what should we do she often says "go kyle-hailey house". I don't think she understands that her cousin crush lives so far away now. It's sweet that she loves them so much but sad we can't just run over anymore.
Now that we are in Olympia which is pretty close to Shelton I have bumped into a couple people from the past. It's fun to run into people and think I know them from somewhere and have memories come back. If anyone reading this lives around us- we are in Olympia now and it would be fun to catch up!
It's been a little over two months since I became the mother to four kids. It's been a very crazy, busy, hectic two months. It's taken its tole on the kids. I think they are worn out and trying to figure out all that has been going on. Despite all of it they are so great. I think they have come through it really well. They are such great kids and even though life is busy right now I really enjoy having all four of them. I think I learn a little more with each kid and even though I don't know everything about parenting I feel like I know enough to be able to relax and enjoy them. It's hard to get everything done but that's ok, because I know they will grow up way to fast and then I will have too much time on my hands so I just try really hard to soak it all in.
I think that by next week the last of the annoying moving stuff should be done and life will start to find a rythm. I feel like we missed out on summer this year. I hope it stays around a little longer so we can enjoy it. Since I can not think of anything else remotely interesting to blog about I guess I better do something productive---like tackle insurance applications---ugh!
