We're back!

This past month has flown by so quickly! We've been busy trying to settle down before Ben goes back to work at the end of August. There will be lots more pictures to come as we finish projects in the house, but here are some for now.

Moving day! It was really quite smooth. Two guys showed up on Monday morning, June 29th, in Rochester. They packed the entire upstairs and some of the downstairs in less than 5 hours. They then loaded a UHaul truck and took it to a waiting 18 wheeler nearby. They came back the next morning and finished packing. We rolled out of town about an hour after they left. We drove to Gloucester and spent the night before finishing our drive to Maine the next day. We spent the rest of the week with Ben's parents hanging out at the lake. On July 6 we signed papers on our new house! Here are the kids playing in the boxes, the moving truck and our garage full of boxes!

Here are 21 gallons of paint... only half of what we've bought so far...
Over the past several weeks, Owen has discovered that he likes to be a "big boy"... playing with power tools and tractors... we're in trouble now!

Boys and their toys!
Here is our "official" welcome to Belfast. This was part of a fundraiser for project graduation... Thanks Trish!
We'll try to post more often from now on. And certainly put pictures of the house as we complete painting, etc. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

Happy 4th of July!

We have arrived safe and sound here in Maine! We have our walk through on the house tomorrow afternoon and then sign papers on Monday morning! Monday afternoon we will start painting with the 21 gallons of paint that we purchased the other day... fun, fun, fun! And then the moving truck arrives with our stuff on Tuesday! For now though, Happy 4th!
