Our new adventures

So, there's been a big lapse of time since I last updated this blog. We've been busy, we went to Disneyland with the family, Austin and Piper, and I had birthdays, Of course all the holidays since Christmas, and we moved to Pullman, WA for school, (WSU). So I'm going to jump right to moving to Pullman because I don't have a lot of time right now. But I''ll try to put some of the old stuff in later. we found an apartment on the edge of campus, It's low income so it'll be $390/mo for a 3 bdrm/2 ba. Michael transferred to the Costco in Clarkston, (40 min away) But he'll get to keep his higher pay and status. So that's great. I want to get pictures of the view coming into Lewiston/clarkston. I'll have to post it when I do. I still like the mountain's/trees/ocean views better, but it is great in a different way. It's also at least 10 degree's hotter when you go down into the canyon where lewiston/Clarkston are. It was at least 104 last time I went with Michael. Otherwise it's been mostly in the 90's in Pullman. Michael broke our AC unit while trying to install it, so we had to buy another. We got a great deal off of craigslist and it's portable so no installing! And we can move it from window to window. It's still chaotic in the house with all the boxes and things to pack. We didn't bring over all of our shelves so we don't have places for everything yet. It's starting to come together though. Here's some pictures of the apartment! First is Austin showing us his room... And Austin showing us "His" Bathroom...also for guests, which we hope to have a lot of after we're all moved in... The washer/dryer/kitchen/dining room
Other side of the kitchen
The entrance, which is big enough i think we'll have a shoe station
Our bedroom, and door to our bathroom... Edge of our dining room and the living room.
And then these are picture after we unloaded all the STUFF!
Not as pretty...and it was hard to move around...But it's better now, not nearly finished, but livable.
Here's pictures of Piper eating on the deck...
She loves being outside and watching the cars go by. Other things I don't have pictures for are the places we've gone with the ward groups. We went to the lake one day, and to an outdoor huge aqua center where Austin FINALLY got brave enough to put half his face in the water and blow bubbles and just play around without being afraid. There are lots of other activities they're doing every week, like geocaching, squirt gun wars, biking a long trail, and a playgroup that gets together every week at various places. It's been a fun week. The people are nice everywhere we go. There are like a dozen LDS families in our apartment complex alone. And lots of kids for Austin to play with. Kids and their parents get together by the the play area, so we can go out and find friends any time during the day, and a bunch of the women and their kids go for a walk every morning. It's been such a full week it feels like we've been here a month! So in conclusion, we're having a blast, making lots of potential friends, and just excited about our new life! We'll be visiting Camano Island area soon though, so we'll say hi to those there in a week or so.

  1. You have been busy! What an exciting move, though! I thought it was hilarious to see the pics with all your boxes-- I never realize how much stuff I have till I box it all up & move it around. Crazy, huh?! Good luck with all the new adventures!
