At Home, At Last

The past month has been an exhausting one for us. We received an offer on our house with a three week closing date, which we accepted, and began searching for a new place to call home. We are here at long last! We've found a great house in Overland Park that we moved into last weekend. It is wonderful . . . enough space for us and the boys, lots of light from south windows and a perfect location - close to work, family and lots of shopping and kid-oriented stuff.

We think Nikolai likes the new place as much as we do - he has a room with a brand new "big boy" bed and a play room in the finished basement. He has been riding his tricycle up and down the sidewalk and has a big backyard to roam. As the snow melted this afternoon, he splashed through every big puddle on the block on the trike and we had to change his pants and shoes several times to dry him out and keep him warm.

This was the first weekend in a month that we've had free time to relax, although Colin also did a bang-up job of getting us unpacked. We're looking forward to many more coffee-drinking weekend mornings in our new home!
