Well, we are here - in Kentucky - all of us together! We got our boxes unpacked and everything put in place pretty quickly. Our house in SC still hasn't sold so we brought only the necessities and we are squeezing them into a 2 bedroom apartment.
During the week, the girls and I are exploring fun things to do in the mornings. We got a library card the Tuesday after we moved here and we are on our 3rd round of books already. Each girl is registered for a library story time this summer so there are potentially two mornings a week that we could be at the library - so far we've only made it one morning a week because we have been double booked.
We've also been to a Strawberry patch to pick strawberries and tomorrow we are heading to go pick Blueberries at another farm. The pool at our apartment complex is another hot spot for us in the mornings.
After our morning adventure, we've been able to eat lunch with Adam a fair amount of days. After that, Lucy lays down for a nap and Caroline has some quiet time while I log in to work for a couple of hours.
On the weekends, we've been able to explore more adventurous things since Adam is with us and can help. We went to Louisville for the day Father's Day weekend.
I think we are all adjusting well and just enjoying being together again. Here are some random pics from our time so far in Kentucky:
The girls wearing their dresses that Aunt Alice made for them.
Caroline crafting away - party hats for Tiger's birthday.
We made a birthday chain for Lucy and we are planning a small Minnie Mouse birthday party at a playground in town. Adam's cousins and parents may be our only attendees but this girl will be celebrated and three years old will be memorable (as long as I don't go into labor - that would be a different kind of memorable).
We went and saw Dr. Kaboom one morning - a free event put on by the library. While his tricks were neat, his random Public Service Announcements to the adults in the audience were kind of annoying. I think Dr. Kaboom has issues ;) Thankfully it went over the kids' heads.
Lucy thought Dr. Kaboom was loud =)
There are a couple of picnic tables near the pool at our apartment complex. We have enjoyed lunch there a few times. The girls usually play tag and hide 'n seek after we eat. There's really no place to hide out there as you can see...
We've also enjoyed several after dinner walks/bike rides around our complex parking lot. I actually envisioned this as something we would do when picking out an apartment. A couple of places we looked at just didn't have the space for us to ride bikes or walk around. This was something I wanted! Caroline has been doing really well on her bike so Adam took her training wheels off. And this is what she has to say about it:
"I was pedaling all over the place so Daddy took my training wheels off and now I'm not pedaling all over the place" - hahaha. She still needs some practice and some confidence.
