1st Week Down!

Tonight we will have officially been in our new home for 1 week! Lot's of changes, mostly good. We have yet to attend our new ward, but the kids love their new school and are finding that making friends is easier than they thought it would be. The new school schedule is kicking my butt! There is no bus service, meaning I walk or ride bikes to the school 3 round trips a day, yes 6 one way trips daily. Evan & I leave at 725 am, depending who is awake, they tag along. Next week Matt will be traveling so I am on my own,everyone must go at 725 am! Then after I return home from round 1, Carter and the babies & I eat breakfast and get ready for the day only to leave at 1125 to take Carter to Kindergarten. Then if the stars are aligned, the babies will nap when we return. Only to be woken up at 215 to run out the door for the final trip to pick the kids up! Shew! Who needs an eliptical? Oh and every Wednesday is early release day, school lets out at 115pm! Come on! it would be impossible to have a job around this schedule. However, I did start my new position this week thanks to Matt being able to work from home! I was able to drive down to Canon City(pronounced Canyon City). It was a 330 mile round trip adventure all by myself! I really enjoyed my first assignment!I said goodbye and closed the door to my labor & delivery saga. We are getting situated rather well, the house is really taking shape nicely. We have a million projects that we would like to do in time! We are adjusting well and enjoying our new surroundings! Next week is sure to bring new adventures!

Geez, that's a lot of biking. You said you wanted to be around a more active lifestyle! Guess you got it. I remember when we rode bikes to school in Florida. I was only 8 and did it by myself. Crazy to think about now.

So I'm your new job the one in Canon City? You said you closed the door on L&D.

Oh my word!! I am so glad for bus service here! You are getting some great exercise, though.
