Our move is behind us and we are settled into our new home. It seems we were just in time as Fall is disappearing and the nip of Winter is in the air.
The children have enjoyed time out-of-doors, free to roam and play in a way we could never allow when we lived in town.
With Grandma and Grandpa living just down the drive from us, the children are able to walk over to visit or help out with necessary tasks. They have been enlisted to groom the dog, carry wood, rake grass clippings and so on.
This fulfills one of our great desires in making this move: that we are able to help my parents as much as and as often as they need us to do so.
