One Week

I am enjoying listening to rain as I type this. I didn't realize how much I missed it until I experienced it again!
Goodbye 2165 39th Ave, you've been good to us!

Last Night at "Home"

We left Oakland one week ago today and it has been a whirlwind! In a week we had our truck loaded, drove across three states, had our truck unloaded, spent lots of time with family (including putting them to work at our new place!), painted kitchen cabinets, tried to unpack as much as possible, finished getting things in order for school (both related to enrollment and medical care), went to the pediatrician for an initial appointment, set up AppleHealth (Medicaid in Washington), began scheduling appointments with specialists...and much more.  We are still having a few things fixed on our rental, there are still boxes to unpack, we haven't put the doors back on our kitchen cabinets, and I have a stack of paperwork to sort through and bills to pay. My mind is still spinning but today began to feel a bit more "normal." We could NOT have made it through the week sane without family!! Thank you to all of our family members who have entertained Anellah and Capper, held Evelyn, fixed cabinets, painted, cooked, hung up clothes, installed towel bars, and more! We are so happy to be living near our family. Here are some photos of the past week.

Spoils from our new "garden"! Plenty of grapes and raspberries to pick. Even enough to juice!
 
Our "pet" piggies and goats being fed by my Grandma and later by Capper. They are actually owned by our landlord but we get to enjoy them. 
Beautiful place, isn't it?
PS It's football season again
