Settling in

Happy Wednesday everyone!
We are starting to get everything unpacked. It has been a very long weekend though.  My sweet parents have been here helping us unpack and put everything away.  I am exhausted though.  The girls have acclimated pretty well to getting up an hour earlier but I haven't yet.  We are still staying up late trying to get stuff done while the kids are in bed but still need to get up with them in the morning. 
We have met several neighbors already.  Three of them have come to say hello and one of the women has invited me to go to lunch with a group of women from the neighborhood next week.  There are plenty of kids around too.  Not all girls, like our fabulous old neighborhood but plenty to keep my girls busy I think.  :) 
School has gotten off to a good start so far.  L's teacher has done a wonderful job of getting the kids excited for her arrival.  They even had a countdown to the day the "new girl" arrived. She has been telling us about 4 girls in particular that she gets along with well.  Academically things are going well too. Her teacher in Bloomington worked ahead so she is very comfortable.
Due to a mix up, K did not get to start school until yesterday.  Things seemed to go very well for her also.  She is looking forward t studying the Middle Ages in Social Studies.  Her class in Bloomington was going to start that unit after Spring Break and she thought she was going to miss it, only to find out they are working on the same unit here.  There is a math test on Friday that she has to take but not for a grade. She is confident she will ace that test because she has already studied that unit.  She has met several girls already and sat with a few of them at lunch yesterday.  
As for me, there is little hope of getting anything creative done for the next few days at least.  So I will share another layout I created before the move.  I have been wanting to scrap these pictures of K from her 5th grade program for some time.  The Jillibean papers were exactly what I was looking for. 
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will be back soon. :)  Have a wonderful week!!!

That's great news that the girls are settling in well at school. That's always a scary thing for kids. I hope you get to scrapping again quickly, your layouts are very inspirational!

It's good to hear that things have progressed and rather well too. There are so many exciting things about a move, I always loved exploring my new city, etc.
