Dh has just finished up his second week at work, and I think he is settling in well. It is desk work and a really long drive (1hr. and 20min one way!), but the nice thing is that he gets every other Friday off. He had yesterday off so we did more of what we have been doing for the last three weeks: looked at houses. We are anxious to get in a house farther south so that Dh doesn't have to drive as far, and it will be really nice to get into a house so we can start unpacking. Right now all of our stuff is still in storage. I think we are getting close to finding one. We already put an offer on one but it was not accepted, now we are looking at a few more that we really like, so maybe we will put in another offer on Monday.
Things have been going really well with the kids; they love the farm, and are having lots of fun with all the family. We have one funny story that I will share, but be warned it is not for the faint of heart;).
Immy and JP were playing outside the other day and when the older kids went out to check on them they found the kids playing with their "Mousy Friend" - a dead rat. They were washing it and holding it. It would have been adorable if it had been a kitten, but under the circumstances it was pretty gross. So "Mousy Friend" was disposed of and the kids were washed thoroughly about thirty times.
Even though the kids struck out with the "Mousy Friend" they really seem to love animals, so perhaps after we get into a house we can get a "Puppy Friend", and make sure that all the other little "Friends" stay out of our yard!
