Getting Settled

We finally have internet! It's the little things. :) We have pretty much gotten everything moved. We have just a few things left that we will be going back for including our Rainbow playground. We are currently renting until we either build or buy a home. We're living in a cute little farm house with only 3 bedrooms. Yes we are cramped, but it's not been too bad. Bre has her own room, Jolea and Luke have bunk beds and share a room, and Luci is sleeping in our room right now. It's pretty tight quarters, but it's ok temporarily. We are very thankful to have such amazing friends here.  We were able to move in the house with no rental agreement or downpayment.  We were very blessed!  We've looked at a couple of homes but haven't found anything so we are currently looking at land to purchase and most likely build.

We love the town here and the schools are great. I have consumed more mexican food that I have ever thought was possible. My kids are even eating bean and cheese tacos for breakfast! There's something about real mexican food and homemade tortillas. It's amazing! We have this little restaurant in town called Milpas and they have the best tortillas I have ever tasted in my life! For friends and family who visit, you can't leave without eating breakfast there!

We had some family time Sunday at the beach. It really is nice being this close to the ocean. The kids love it, and it's such a great way to relax. They are entertained for hours and Joey and I can just sit and soak in some vitamin D without listening to them fight, tattle tail, or complain. I see lots of time spent there this summer for us.

The journey's been great so far.  Being a stay at home Mom is the most important job I've ever had.  I'm beyond thankful that God paved the way financially for me to be able to do this again!  When I'm missing how things used to be, I just look into the big brown eyes of this little girl and it all makes sense again!  I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here, although I am missing my family like crazy! Hopefully they'll be visiting very soon! hint hint!
