It still feels rather strange to be back here. To be LIVING here. Familiar and yet so different at the same time. I've never actually lived in Salt Lake City. But I have spent 9 (nonconsecutive) years of my life in Utah. I'm excited to spend more time with the family and friends I have here. I was pleasantly surprised that as we drove down I-80 from Wyoming into Utah I did feel a sense of homecoming. The mountains were gloriously green and lush looking and I realized I had missed them. I'm sure I will have to remind myself of that after months of snow and winter. NC made me soft.
Of course the biggest reason we are so happy to be here is the kids. Their last day of school was Tuesday and they have been with us this week. For the summer they will be spending one week at a time at each parent's home with one dinner in the middle of the week with the other parent. Once school starts again things will have to be adjusted. It's been very fun to have them here. They absolutely ADORE Asher and he loves them! I love seeing them play with him.
Speaking of Asher, he's been a teething maniac. He cut 3 new teeth within a two day period! That brings his grand total to four. Two top, two bottom. I find it really funny to see these little teeth in his mouth now. I'll get a picture of them soon.
We are really enjoying our house. I have a whole list of little projects I'd like to do. The front yard needs some work. It's fun to have a house with some character. And I love having SPACE! This house has tons of storage and a great flow. The kids have been loving the back yard and downstairs play room. There is even a little old metal shed in the corner of the back yard that has been dubbed the "Playhouse". They have the beach chairs set up in there.
I know I need to post pictures but I haven't spent any time going through them yet and have more to take. Plus, we still have organizing and things to do. I'll get around to it this weekend or next week when the kids aren't here.
I have lots of stuff to catch up on here in the blogosphere. I've missed you guys! And yes North Carolina, we miss you! And all the friends we left there. I wish we could have brought you all with us.
