Really a difficult month with Eric in Oregon, me trying to get the house ready to sell, and saying goodbye to those we love. Mom threw one big shin-dig to say good-bye.
August brought some sadness, adventure, adjustment, and discovery as we settled into our new home.
Although no more pool in the backyard, we discovered some "swimmin' holes"
We discovered what the Pacific Ocean looked like (more like how cold the water is)
We discovered the local wild life too!
September brought some new discoveries as well. I discovered that I actually can homeschool all three kids and still remain sane.....sometimes. We discovered that an artist lived in our house all along.
The boys continue to be each other's best playmates and their brotherly bond has grown even stronger.
The Roloff Farm was a big hit especially when we watched the special on TV that was shot while we were visiting. However, I think they would have had higher ratings if we had a cameo shot in it!
We became tourists in our own state and drove all around through the beautiful falls and parts of Washington.
Daddy has been able to go on many a field trip with us this year. He likes pretending to be a scientist!
November brought Grammy and Poppy to see us!
"Why, the Polar Express of course!"
Go Ally, Go!
Christmas Party Date
We had lots of grandparent time in December! Grammy, Poppy, Omi and Grandpop all came to see us! What a great first Christmas in Oregon!
