We are trying to get settled in Kentucky

We are finally in KY! We arrived Christmas Eve (safely after our travel through the I-70 highways that was sooo bad) and closed on our house Dec 28th. So as you can tell it has been hectic busy here. We painted our living room walls and tried to get it ready for the movers to bring our stuff which happened Tuesday morning. The boys are enrolled in school and trying to get used to the Trimester schedule they have and waiting to be eligible to wrestle here since the season is still going on.

A winter storm hit our area today and we actually have a "snow day" and the kids are off school. I find that comical considering we never had snow days in Alaska.

I promise to update with pictures from our trip. Right now just trying to undo all these boxes I have all over my house and trying to get a routine going for finally some normal days. We have been in limbo since the 25th if November so I am just so eager to get my house situated to be a home. :)

I have not forgot you all. I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season. Nick turned 16 on New Year's Eve. Geesh can you believe I am really a parent to a teenager! Where has the time gone?

Hope you all have a great week ahead of you and if you are in the area of the winter storm be careful on the roads and stay warm.

Falling Snow
by anonymous

See the pretty snowflakes
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops
Soft and thick they lie.

On the window ledges,
On the branches bare;
Now how fast they gather,
Filling all the air.

Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.

Now the bare black bushes
All look soft and white,
Every twig is laden,
What a pretty sight!

Hi Chrissy!:)
In Alaska it could be 50 below and you are expected to be in school. The only time school closes is if it warms up to a point that is is an ice rink outside and the bus can't run. Which happens very rarely. Elementary school has recess outside until -20.

I am not sure if that is considered tougher on the kids but it was just a way of life up there. Here it snows 2 inches and everything shuts down. LOL!
