I Got A New Altitude

First off, our move was a horrible, horrible, let me say that again, HORRIBLE, mess. We still have 66 boxes missing, furniture destroyed, Carter's ramps gone and on and on and on. But, I can't dwell on the negative anymore. It just isn't what I want to think about.

It is BEAUTIFUL here. My Vegas and Phoenix friends shall drool at the fact that I took a wonderful, meandering walk through tall fields and pine forests and it was 65 degrees out tonight! Don't worry I will suck it up and take your bragging when it is snowing here and you all are running around in shorts.

Everyone here is scarily friendly. No seriously, I am afraid to drink the CO koolaid. I didn't realize how jaded I had become in Vegas until I got here and everyone you talk to is nice. There must be some nasty people around here somewhere....(heehee)

I went to the garden center today and signed up for some classes. I am so excited to grow flowers!!!

Connor is loving the community pool. He can walk over by himself. Carter and I have been twice this last week. Our new homeschool co-op has park days on Wed so we will check that out next week. This week I have someone coming to give me an estimate on making the house more accessible. I have heard that the library two blocks away loves homeschoolers and runs lots of classes during the school year for us.

Boxes, boxes, busy, busy....miss everyone! Pictures next time!

That is great that you guys are settling in and loving it. There are tons of great things that I miss about CO. Hope everything clears up with the moving mishaps.

Sorry to hear about the move. Here's hoping it all works out soon and without too much grief. CO sounds like a wonderful place to live! Wow! We miss you already. Hello and love to all! (Oh- no baby yet)
