Happy Saturday everyone! Well we made it to Nebraska and have been here for a little more than a week. It’s been going well and we are adjusting to the new lifestyle. It’s not going to be easy getting used to being so far away from everything though. Monday I spent the morning in the closest town (45 minutes away) to go grocery shopping. It took all morning and the grocery store didn’t have everything that I needed, so I had to make due without. I have been spending lots of time painting and decorating the house. I will share with you what I have been doing in the next couple of weeks.
Here are a few pictures of our first week here:
Here is the view of our back yard and drive way.
And here is a view of our front yard.
We have lots of wide open space, the only problem is…. these dumb things! Stickers, goat heads or whatever they are called (they call them something, I just don’t remember). They are all over our lawn and so they get stuick on our shoes and then into our house. I step on them at least 5 times a day. We are starting to get them under control but boy are they annoying!
There are lots of pretty flowers around our house, so my boys picked some and put them in water and put them on a window seal.
My two oldest boys started school this week! 2nd grade and kindergarten! They get to ride a bus and it’s about 20 minutes away. They leave at 7:15 am and get home at 3:50pm. It’s a long day for them but they both seem to love it! They are happy in the morning and don’t complain about going, so that is good.
Things are going well so far. I have been pretty lonely here. I think that happens with every place you move, it takes time to adjust and make friends. Hopefully soon we will be settled down and can enjoy our new life on the ranch.
