We couldn't be more happy to buy and move into our first home. 13 years into marriage and we FINALLY purchased our own home!! How exciting, and well worth the wait!
As I was unpacking I came across the "cookie jar", which seemed WAY heavier than it needed to be. Low and behold, Will had "packed" it himself and look what he brought from Bagdad... four rocks, some garbage, (Bagdad garbage is much better than other "trash"), His gun, which he taped to the targets, and his monster truck. So, this is what is important to a 4-year-old boy!!
And the neighbors came over to greet us and give us a basket that they made for us. Each of the neighbors put a present in the basket for us! We have the greatest cul-de-sac ever!!!! Our new neighbors are sooo loving and caring. They have already helped us out soooo much. One day I walked down the stairs where I had been unpacking and a neighbor was in my pantry unloading some boxes for me... she just came right in and got to work!!! Amazing, I know!!! And they are ALL like that!!!!!!! I feel soooo blessed to live here!!!
Here is a photo shot of grandpa and the neighborhood boys putting together the trampoline.
The kids were sooooo excited to have a backyard again!!! And I was so excited to let them play and get a few things done.
A beautiful sunset and a handsome boy riding his bike! I love them both!
And now onto the "cutting" part. Yesterday I had a surgery to find out what is going on with my cancer. It wasn't such a huge surgery, and instead of using steri-strips or stitches, they decided to "glue" me together this time! I am actually glad they did because I think it will heal a lot better and not be so painful. Today I feel a little bit like I got punched all along my wind pipe and across my neck. But, I have had worse, and I just need a bit of rest and a bit of chocolate.... or a lot of chocolate and a lot of rest! Something like that!
When the kids got home and ran over to see my cut, Sarah looked at it and said, "Your right daddy, it does look like a little mouth!" he he! What a goof!!!
Back track to last Thursday and my view as I pulled up at the house. Yipppeeee, our stuff is here!!!
Other news.... Will tested into a developmental preschool program here in Gilbert and I am sooooo excited for him! The bus is going to pick him up at our house everyday and drop him off right at his front door! Life doesn't get better than this!!!! He is super excited for it to all begin!!
