I can finally say we feel settled. It is a welcome feeling after two weeks of a more homeless lifestyle. Our stuff arrived Tuesday night at about 6:00. It was like Christmas...for the first few boxes anyway. After unwrapping my 465869869 glass, I was over it. Ryder had a blast playing in all of the paper, and I had a blast throwing boxes full of paper off my balcony at Jay!
Mostly everything is unpacked and in its new place. I will post pictures of our new cozy( that's a better way of saying tiny, right?!) new apartment.
I am officially enrolled in graduate school and am anxiously awaiting September 27th when I actually get to start. I'm a little nervous but mostly excited. I'm so thankful that Jay and Ryder are here with me. I don't think the cross-country move would be quite as exhilarating without them.
Ryder is completely at home here! He has been Skyping with my in-laws and calling his "Mo" on his pretend phone daily. Their conversation goes a bit like this, "Hello, ummm, yea, eight, seven, fives, five dollars, yea, Mo, byebye."
He makes us laugh with his silly little ways. A few days ago we asked him what he wanted to be when he grows up. Jay and I know that he doesn't really understand our questions, but we like to hear the response anyway for entertainment purposes.
I ventured out on my own in my car for the first time today. I was *almost* succesful until my hubcap fell off, and I proceeded to run over it. meh.
By the way, Ryder wants to be feet when he grows up :)
