When we arrived late last Friday night, the little boys kept saying, "New house! New house!" We came in the door and the first thing Tian asked was, "Where's Nana?" Aww. He's going to miss seeing her and Pappy every week. My three boys ran all over the house, checking out each room and the backyard. Yay! We have a backyard again!

The older three kids were happy to just be here, but were also eager to meet neighbors and our friends' kids. So far, three neighbors and their kids have popped over to say hi, even bringing us yummy treats! It's a great feeling to be in a friendly neighborhood again. On Monday, my sister and niece moved to town, too! My kids are beyond thrilled to have their cousin so close. (They've already spent four nights together.) I'm happy to have my sister nearby, too. It's not the house next door with a tunnel connecting the two, like we always talked about when we were little, but it will do.
Here are some snapshots of our past few days. See the complete album here. Eco-Art Fest album here.
