Settling In...We Heart Boerne!

Hello!  With just over a week under our belt as Hill Country citizens, we finally have a chance to stop and breathe in a deep, cedar-scented breath!  As anyone can imagine, relocating a family of two adults, two boisterous kids, one teething baby, and two dogs is no small feat.  Yet here we are!  On May 31st, Daddy, Cooper, and Ralph the dog left EARLY in the morning in order to meet the moving truck at our new home.  Mama, Penny, Ellie, and Brewster followed, arriving just two hours after the guys.  That first day was busy and has only slightly become less so since.  We have been consumed with unpacking and all the other steps it takes to move.  Setting up services, overseeing work being done and shopping for things we need, to name a few.  

We have also already had visitors!  Our friend Sara came that first Sunday and helped us with our kitchen unpacking.  Then Uncle Clint came over a few days later for dinner and swimming.  Nonnie arrived last Wednesday and helped A LOT with unpacking and kid entertainment.  Then on Thursday we got a surprise visit from Ma-Mas and Aunt Ida on their way to San Angelo! We spend the days working, working, working, but our evenings consist of enjoying our new surroundings, namely the pool and the view.  We still have lots to do before we are completely "moved in" but we are oh so happy to be here!  What a fabulous place to spend the summer and start the next chapter of our lives!

(Disclaimer:  Picture-taking has NOT been on the docket over the last week...these are what I have managed.)

Ralph is really enjoying the beach entry to the pool, or as we have dubbed it just for him, "the old guy entry."
We needed some refreshment after a half-day shopping trip into San Antonio.
Not one single room in the house is completely put together.  Its probably not surprising that Miss Penny's room is the closest. Or that the two little girls in the house are the only ones with real beds.  No matter, we crash just as easily onto a mattress on the floor, with all that we are doing during the day!
We took time out to venture into Boerne, take a walk in the park, and visit the ducks.
After a day's work, we have to keep pinching ourselves that this is how we get to unwind.
