After a month or so hiatus from blogging, I will slowly be getting back into the swing of things!
We are settled in our new home and getting into a bit of a routine. I have to admit it has been a bit overwhelming moving to a bigger house (almost twice the size of our old home). It is more house we have been slowly furnishing, more house to clean and more house to keep up with. Not to mention that we went from no stairs to 3 separate flights of stairs so it has been fun getting the boys use to going up and down safely, which they have both mastered!
However, despite the overwhelming-ness, we are all incredibly happy here. We moved a bit further West than where we previously lived to an area we really were not familiar with at all. It is closer to Kyle’s job and surrounded by farms and fields of crops. This may not appeal to many, but we love it. Everyone we have met has been super friendly and we like the small town feel while still being close enough to any major shopping or attractions we may need.
We all just seem so much more relaxed and happy here. Our dog, who was born deaf, always seemed on edge or anxious at the old house. He would randomly run to the front door and bark for no apparent reason which got pretty annoying and disturbing. At the new house, he is so peaceful. He has not had any outbursts of random barking or storming the door. He still likes to be where ever we are in the house but I am sure it’s for security due to his impairment. Our cat, we rarely saw at the old house unless she wanted food. She spent her days sleeping or hiding. At the new house, she is much more social and spends time with us. I think she is enjoying the different levels of the house and all the windows that let in warm sun light that she can bask in. As for myself and the rest of the family, we just love it. The boys have a separate play room I set up, their bedroom is much bigger and they enjoy playing out on our deck. As a family, we have been trying to go for walks. We have walked to a couple parks and exploring our new neighborhood. It has been fun staying active together.
I will leave you with a few pictures but stay tuned for some new posts coming soon!
