Campfires and Family

Ahhhhhhh. This is life! Since our departure from Tyler last weekend and our arrival in Indiana, life has been kinda relaxing. My loving husband hasn't' started work yet and neither have I. So we have had lots of 'down' time. Aside from the minor details of having to find a place to live, unpacking, settling in, figuring out what we need and what we don't need, shopping for things we need and don't have, turning utilities on, trying to find the best deal on cable...or will it be satellite?, fixing things that broke during the move, fixing things that were already broken in the new (to us) house, changing diapers, and discovering our new neighborhood on bikes, we have been blessed with the opportunity to spend lazy moments with some very loving family. We are talking camp fires (and smores of course) trampoline jumping, tandem bike riding, long country drives, lazy mornings with bacon and pancakes, or a little biscuit and gravy and probably the most important thing to my loving husband and I has been the fact that our little boys can now play outside at anytime and it doesn't have to be in the water. Don't get me wrong, Texas was amazing. But the summers were brutal. And that's putting it mildly. No running and jumping outside for extended periods of time. And certainly no going barefoot. But here, up north, it's a different story! The boys have spent hours and hours playing outside. Barefoot. In the grass. It's been a blessing to witness and be a part of.
Life is good. Indeed. I love Indiana. I love being close to family. I still miss Texas and all my friends down there. But, Life Is Good.
