Getting Setteled In

  Well hi there!  Sorry for that blog hiatus but things were just so crazy over the last few weeks that I never had the opportunity to do any real blogging.  I'm hoping now that school and work have started that things will settle down a bit and I'll be able to start back up again regularly. 
  After spending the holidays with D's family in Kansas, we're all together again here in Tucson.  Sky and I actually flew in before D and the boys to get the lay of the land and start setting up the house.  I was so great to have time with just Sky- she's a different, more grown up person without her little brothers around.
  D started work yesterday and Sky and Fire are both in school (Kindergarten and preschool, respectively).  I started my new job as a stay-at-home mom and am so glad that my mom is visiting for the week to help me get a handle on things.  There's so much to do in a day and it's doubled by the fact that we're still getting moved in.
  We only have a little bit of furniture but hopefully our shipments from Kwaj and from Omaha (where we lived before Kwaj) will be delivered before the end of the month.  Until then, we're still mostly camping but doing our best.  We're making new friends, enjoying all the new things to do here, and trying to make the most of life here.  I'll be working up some dedicated move and house posts soon but here's a little bit of a photo catch up for now:

 Four car seats and room to spare- exactly why we got an Excursion.

 We took the kids to Great Wolf Lodge for a few days and Earth was all ears (ha!)
