I can't believe how long it's been since I blogged! We have moved to NJ!! We are living in housing on NWS Earle and we love it here! We call our neighborhood Sleepy Hollow, it is so quiet! I've made a few new friends and we are getting plugged in at our new church. We still aren't unpacked yet but it's livable and we are getting it done slowly but surely.
Yesterday was a hard day for me. My new church is great! Full of friendly people, spirit filled, just wonderful. But they don't know me yet. I miss being loved by my church family. I miss walking into church and having people who know my heart, welcome me into the fold. I miss people cherishing me and how I can serve in the church. I know that will all come in time here, but in the mean time, it's hard. I feel like a wall flower. The kids and Chris all LOVE it! I do too, I'm just having a harder time I guess.
Today we started school! Tink is in 6th grade, Princess is in 3rd, and Little Man is PK-4. We started the day by going to watch colors at the flag pole. That was really patriotic and brought tears to my eyes. Two guys bring out the flag and attatch it to the pole, the Star Spangled Banner is played across the whole base, one guy salutes the flag as the other guy raises it up. We are so blessed to live in such an amazing country! I feel very priviledged to be able to homeschool my children.
So we came home and ate breakfast and then the kids were ready to go! Unfortunately, Princess's computer was not. It took me 30 minutes and a reboot to get it going. (I also realized last night that somehow I forgot to order her math book!) So then we were off and running. Scooter went down for a nap and I did Little Man's lesson with him, luckily it wasn't too long cause he was losing attention quickly! We had a nice lunch around noon and Tink finished at 1:30 and took Little Man across the street to the park to play. Princess is finishing up her last two subjects. All in all, it was a great homeschool day!
Mr. M started his first day of work today and he had to go to Long Island. It took him 4 hours to get to work!! I couldn't believe it! I knew it was going to be be bad if there was traffic but wow! Hopefully he will only be there a couple of days and then he'll be here in New Jersey. I told him he should have just spent the night at a hotel there tonite and come home tomorrow!
We really like it here in NJ, it's a beautiful state! I miss my Mom and Dad. I miss my friends. I miss my church. But I know that I will get used to it here in time. I can't wait for people to come visit!!
