As Promised...

Here are a few pictures of the last couple weeks. House, kids, etc. I will still post the pictures of the skirts I (with my mom's help) made for the girls.

This is the side of the house

This is the front

breakfast nook and living room beyond

Dining room and family room (the house is shaped like an "L")

Looking away from the house

First day of school

Lol! Love the expressions here!

The driveway...well there are two driveways but this entrance is most often used because the other has a gate.

Home again, Home again Jiggity Jig...

We finally made it! Yes, we have officially moved back to California, Sacramento to be exact. We arrived the beginning of September and it has been a whirlwind of activities since. We moved into our house (I'll post pictures soon), enrolled the kids in school, went to church, applied for a job, and have been quite busy with a smattering of other "things". You know the saying, "Hit the ground with your feet running"? Yes, that's us, no time to waste. Everything will eventually fall into place and then it will be Christmas! Yikes!! Ha!

To sum the school thing up briefly, Elle and Ashley go to the elementary school right around the corner from our house. They both love it and their teachers. Levi and Myles are doing a sort of hybrid school schedule where they go to a location two days a week and are home the other three. It is nice and so far, they seem to like it. For them, school is not something they love but rather they tolerate because they have no other choice.

Church, well of course, we are at The Rock Church. It is nice to be home and see so many new faces (and of course all our dear friends). That is an indication of growth and revival. We are so excited to see and be a part of what God is doing here in Sacramento and surrounding areas.

Now a little run down on the "job". I applied for a para-educator position in the Elk Grove School District. This is just a foot in the door to help me in the future. It would be a part-time position during the hours my kids are in school. My goal is to continue on to my BA and this would help with experience. So, we'll see, I should know something in a week or so. God will open the door if that is where He wants me.

I will try to post pictures in the next day or so...till then, have a blessed day!
