Still living in a construction zone. After the
Still living in a construction zone. After the third week, I’m threatening to put the builder’s crew in my guest room. They are a great group of guys–working hard to make sure that our dream home is the way that we want it. Still, a girl can only look at construction dust for so long…
Meanwhile, we’ve had a busy social schedule connecting with family and friends from the area. J’s friend Leigh brought us some local treats on Saturday- wine, a picnic blanket, and some seriously delicious subs from a nearby shop. HEAVEN.
J’s parents watched the kids on Saturday so that we could celebrate our 8th anniversary. We happily headed downtown to walk the main street and then went to a small bistro recommended by our friend Anna. The chef knew of us–there are some home town connections there–and we got a great corner table and a delicious seared scallop as an amuse bouche. The food and the company were fantastic. Ah, how I’ve missed just hanging out with my hubs.
Morgan started swim lessons at the YMCA this week. I cannot get over the quality of the YMCA system in the northeast–the one that we had in the desert was pitiful. He loves leaving school with his gym bag like the bigger kids who play a sport. It’s so cute.
Leighton is taking an art class in a neighboring town. They have a beautiful museum that offers enrichment classes for toddlers. I meet a friend there and we enjoy working on a project with our two little ones.
Weekends are usually filled with get togethers, good wine, and a generous dose of unpacking. I know that we are going to be very happy here.
Again, sorry these are abbreviated. It’s always hard for me to jump back in to the writing.
