We finally made it into our new home and we love it!
After packing everything in the truck all day Friday, we rolled out Saturday morning for the trek out to the desert. It took a little over two hours since we were driving the 26 footer. We pulled in and about 4 hours later, the truck was unpacked (special thanks Jon & Jack!).
We’ve spent the last few days putting furniture together, unpacking boxes, getting the utilities turned on, unpacking boxes, running into town and finally… unpacking boxes. And yes, we still have more boxes to unpack. 🙂
Katie is adjusting quite well. She loves going over to see the animals next door and pointing them all out to us. This is our list of neighbors so far:
- donkeys (I can hear the hee-hawing at night… I love it!)
Hopefully I didn’t leave anyone out. The neighbor said we can go over and take Katie for pony rides whenever we want. I’ll be excited for things to be settled here, and to let her take her first pony ride. Fun!
So things are good. The weather has been cool and windy. The night sky is incredible – I’ve never seen so many stars. And even though we are near the highway, it is so quiet outside. We see the sunrise over the flat desert to the east and watch the sun set over the mountains to the west. Beautiful.
