So much to catch up on....

It seems like time just keeps on going whether I can keep up or not. LOL! We are finally trying to get into a routine. Bo is still not settled with his work. He has to orientate for the next couple weeks with different schedules before he finally stays in one spot in the hospital.

We have come close to having the house finished. All the living areas and the rooms are but we have the basement still to finish painting and the extra room in the basement to finish. But we have done well considering our time frame. And it is not just an empty space anymore it is a home.

The boys are settling in school. Jared took the Varsity 103 spot for wrestling this last week and then took first in the North Hardin Invitational yesterday. Not bad for the new kid in town. :) Nick did well too and was able to finally wrestle. He is in the 112 spot but is JV and usually they don't wrestle as much as the Varsity. But he did have 5 matches in this tournament and did well. Our high school team took first in the tournament.The team is finally warming up to them and they seem to be just cruising in the academics area too. So that is a sigh of relief for Bo and I.
It was hard enough to take them away mid year from school and their friends up in Alaska. Then to be the new kid and adjust to a new system and friends I know cannot be that easy but they seem to always pull it off.

Nick and Jared looking so serious after a team meeting before the tournament started.

Winning the tournament. Central Hardin Bruins!

As you can see we stay busy...but I know I have a lot of catching up to do on here mostly with pictures.

So keep a look out on my future entries. :)

In the meantime we have been enjoying 50 degree weather and beautiful misty mornings and sunsets and sunrises. Here are some of those moments.

Here are little snippets of the scenery around us.

Off to bed I go....wishing you all a great start to your week.

Such beautiful photos and I am so excited for you and your family and your beautiful new home. You always have such an awesome way of putting 'your touch' on your home - no matter where you live.

I miss you dearly, but I'm happy to read that you are all settling in and the boys are adjusting well to their new school.

Make many wonderful memories during this chapter of your life!
