Settling In: Take Two

We've made it to four months in our new home and we're almost at that utopian moment of peace and quiet. There will always be projects, but the wood floors and tile are done. No more jack-hammering. No more fumes. No more hoopla-induced migraines. We're both soooo ready! This weekend we'll put back the belongings that were stuffed around the house during the repairs. It's going to be heavenly.

We've now shared a lovely Valentine's Day in our new home...

... and the first amaryllis bulb bloomed beneath the skylights.

The deer have continued to peer in and pass by...

... and the dog is now used to it.

Cameron has continued to work on 8th grade through his online charter school and...

... still loves petting the dog during Spanish vocab work, but...

... things have changed a bit!
Andrew is blissfully happy at work

I've done my first dress rehearsal with the chorus (gulp, full make-up) and next weekend I'll head to Phoenix for the regional convention.

Cameron has taken to tell-an-alternating-story-as-you-go walks... and tends to get a bit goofy during the process :)

It's been a long process of working toward that peace with the house...

... and we still have lots to put back...

... but we're almost there and the peace inside and out is going to be deeply nurturing.

Peace and quiet and feeling fully settled are all quite close.
