We're in Omaha!
We closed Friday morning on our new home in Omaha, it is wonderful here! We already know several of the neighbors. Saturday the neighbors from 2 doors down came over, they have 6-yr old boy/girl twins who will turn 7 soon and join Sam in the 2nd grade class. So our kids have new playmates! They have spent every day together since! The boy and Sam are 2 peas in a pod, and Lucy and the girl are fabulous fashionistas. They are so happy! The twins even have an 11-yr old big sister who has taken babysitting class.
School starts here on August 10! Poor kids hardly get a Summer, but it will be great for them to meet more neighborhood kids. They can walk to school, really we're just across the street from the backyard of the school. All the kids do is cross the street, then follow the sidewalk up to the school. It's awesome! We saw the kids classrooms on Tuesday and finished our registration Wednesday.
My Mom, Aunt, and Grandma came down to stay for the weekend and help move us in. We also had help from friends who already live in the area. Thank you so much for your help! We couldn't have done it without you! Sunday evening we had a celebration dinner, and my dear friend Heather, who is a Pastor, blessed the house. It was such a nice evening. God even blessed us with a double rainbow while we were sitting on the patio relaxing after dinner.
I plan to work on each room a day at a time, and hopefully, before we know it, we'll be all moved in. The house in St. Francis will be listed this week for sale. Mom and Dad are finishing up getting that ready for us. I really do have the best parents in the world! I hope I can show as good of an example to my kids.
Hopefully I'll be in the craft room within 2 weeks. More Scrappy Chic to come soon!
