Finally Moved

It has been a remarkably busy several weeks.

Thankfully the drive across the country went well. Even with 3 kids in toe. We only threatened to leave them in a rest area twice. That's good right? And it was actually just the girls we threatened with abandonment. The baby wasn't much of a problem. Do I feel bad for the threats of abandonment? mmmmm no ha ha. I'm only kidding. For the most part the kids were great.

So we've gotten settled in to our new home. We're living on base and I am really liking it. I wasn't sure at first, when my husband and I discussed the pro's and con's of on base housing. I am really liking it. The Norfolk NAS is a beautiful base and HUGE. The new NEX is opening next week and I am so excited about that. Ok I guess I need a life if I am excited about the new NEX.

Emily (my oldest) has started her lessons with her new coach. He is awesome. He feels she has been held back. She's far better than her test level so by the end of next month he is going to have her test into novice. Oh..she's a figure skater if you didn't know.

Oh and....I found the most amazing nail tech. It's the little things you know.

OK When Did This Happen?

My kids feet grew like over night. This morning my daughter puts on a pair of sandals to wear to school and her toes are hanging over the ends. Ok yes they are last summer's sandals but still. So I told her we'd go get her some new ones after school. So since I hate shoes and rarely wear them myself I rarely put shoes on my kids feet...until we have to go somewhere (heaven forbid) or they go outside to play. So I, try, to put my 3 year old in shoes and same thing, her little toes poke out over the ends of her sandals too.

I need to pay more attention to my kids big elephant feet
