Settling in.....

It's amazing..... I feel like we've lived here forever..... I have most of the house straight with just a few more things to do. The babies LOVE it. No more stairs, and I don't worry near as much. I already feel better not having to climb those stairs OVER and OVER all day long. The boys are happy having their own rooms again and their own man den..... Logan is back in school. THAT is a blessing in itself. When we moved we changed school districts..... That's one of the main reasons for this fast move. Logan NEEDED to be back in regular school, and I NEEDED him back for my sanity. It was SO hard trying to homeschool while taking care of 2 wild girlies and sewing..... not to mention all the duties that come with being a mama..... My parents are 5 minutes away, and they pop over all the time. It's great for me and the babies..... They load them up in their strollers and take them strolling in downtown Fairhope. The girls love it, and so does their mommy. It's great having a break for 30 minutes here and there..... From our house we can hear the clock chiming from downtown. It wakes us up at 8 every morning......much better than a beep beep beep beep of an alarm clock. This is definitely WHERE we're supposed to be. I miss Daisy and her kiddos, but Fairhope's only about 20 minutes away..... I hope to get them down here one day this week for a playdate at the park. One job I've given myself is to find some friends.... I have TONS of friends all over the place but not many here. Ever since Jenny moved I've kinda been lost. I love hanging out with my parents, but I NEED some girlfriends.... I was in such a depression before that I just couldn't reach out..... Now I feel the sun shining again. ALL my children are doing well, and life is better. I have a sewing date tomorrow with a girl I met eating lunch around Christmas. We're going to sew and let the babies play (she has a little girl AP's age). It's a start. I'm also thinking of joining the MOPS group here in Fairhope. We still have to visit some churches to decide WHERE we should be spending our Sundays. We're planning on visiting Fairhope UMC. It's right around the corner from our house..... We'll see..... For now I'm just enjoying my family one day at a time. God has blessed us in some very unlikely ways, and we are thankful for His love and guidance. To all my blogging friends I say, "Come on down!" Fairhope is a great place to visit! I can show you the town.......

On another note I'm getting a blog redo this week..... I can't wait to see it. The girl that's doing it is AMAZING. I don't want a froo froo blog anymore. I want a grown up mommy blog.... Be checking back to see it.....

love to you all,
loulou

Sounds like things are going great!! I am so happy for you and your family. You won't have ANY problems making friends. After meeting you, I'd felt like I'd known you for years. You are a wonderful person, and great to be around! I can't wait for new pics of the family. I bet the boys and girls have grown a lot! I'm glad the boys like their schools.
