Moo

That is the first sound that struck me our first night in our new home! More on that later...

We are getting settled slowly (Jamie! Where are you with your quick unpacking skills when I need you!:). This place is a lot smaller than we anticipated - our apartment that is - and we have had to get rid of a lot of stuff. We are still sifting through boxes of kids toys and parental junk that we constantly ask, "Do we really need that?" or "Have they outgrown this yet?" I have a huge load of stuff for good will but haven't gotten a chance to get it there because we only have one car!

Bob is enjoying his new "career" as a full time student with 20 credits! His books alone cost $500 and his tools will more than triple that for this semester. With more to come next semester! Fortunately next year will be much less because most of the books he had to get this year - only like $200 next year and tools will be covered because he won't need anymore new ones next year. Who ever knew that being an airplane mechanic was so expensive!

So, I am at the library and should go find my kids. We won't have internet until the 10th so I will give you the whole scoop then - complete with pictures!

I have to wait until the 10th to hear more about the moo? Hmmm.

Glad you made it there safe and sound. Have fun unpacking. ;)

Glad you are settling in. Well, you don't have to worry about roaches crawling out of boxes...so no big hurry there;)

Ouch, that is a LOT of money!

Can't wait for an update!!!

Do you have cows in the yard or something? Tell me more!

I'm glad y'all got there alright and that Bob is enjoying school so far :) And be sure to check half.com for used text books. All you need is the ISBN number (and you really can get them cheap!).
