Point A to Point B


St. Louis Souvenirs

Goodbye Silky’s

Goodbye Bestie!

Goodbye Garden!

Moving reveals many lessons most involving humility (oh yeah? You think you are organized?) and realizations that you have too many belongings. When it was all said and done (and canoe, houseplants, bikes, rabbits, chickens, etc.) given away to the neighbors, all our earthly possessions fit onto a 26′ truck which Smoochie and the Spy drove across the country towing a car. Baby, Zilla and I flew and our flight was conveniently cancelled the morning of our journey. Fortunately we were comfortable at Zilla’s best friend’s house when informed of this cancellation and decided to take a flight to Boston later in the day.

Uncle Kenny picked us up in Boston

From there just a short drive (less than 2 hours) to our new [rental] home in Maine!

While we were unpacking we spotted this little gardener snake and I thought, YOU have got to be kidding me with the snakes! We are the reptile whisperers, even in Maine! Our first full day we unpacked the truck and went straight to the beach…

50 something degree water; so refreshing!

It is very exciting to be exploring a whole new place!!

Look! An arch!

Pretty great first week in Maine!

    You guys look like you are having a blast! Much colder than Missouri, eh? ;) I can’t believe you all are swimming – yikes, way too cold for me! What a thrill to be so close to the beach.
    How did Zilla handle leaving the rabbits? That darling lop-eared fellow was so sweet. Kids are pretty flexible, on to new and better! ;)
    How are YOU liking it and the new digs? Will you be getting a job there with your new credentials?

      I love it and much more space in the new house (and hoping to buy a house next year); so getting settled but leaving a lot of stuff in boxes. Zilla was sad about the lop ear but we gave to a friend so can “keep in touch” and there was the promise of a new rabbit of course (haha! NEXT YEAR!) The kids are LOVING the beach. Yes, I am eager to get a job as an nurse practitioner, hopefully in the next month. In the meantime though of course it is nice to FINALLY have some time off!
