Project Life | Weeks 37-38

As we get settled into a new city and are staying in temporary housing, we are anxiously counting down the days until we can move into our new home. The temps is Colorado are cooling and us warm-blooded Arizonans are getting used to a new climate. This week, I attended a Grandparents Day event at the kids school since all of their grandparents live out of town. The kids wanted me there, and I was happy to be a part of it. Over the weekend, we attended Denver's Downtown Aquarium. 

It was such a great experience, we ended up by a membership. Since it rained a lot, we kept warm by staying indoors and doing fun things like flipping through books at Barnes & Noble and drinking hot chocolate.

The week consisted of visiting Hank's cousin Sean and supporting him during his recovery, taking the kids bowling, parent-teacher meetings, and more.

I included photo booth pics and a piece of Ryland's artwork from school as well as photos from a park that we visited with our extended family. Fun days!

Project Life | Week 34-36

First week of school in Arizona. I included our busy weekly schedule and some photos of goodbye dinners with friends.

This page included Ryland's 4 year well check, send off at church, saying goodbye to friends, and Taylor's last dance class at LA Dance. Such a big week for us. The move is getting close.

Week 35 is all about the move to Colorado. I included a photo of Carol and my kids as she took them out to ice cream one last time after school. We will miss those moments. Saying goodbye with some friends at school...Ryland breaking fracturing his elbow and being sent to Phoenix Children's Hospital the day we packed up our U-Haul.

On Friday we started the long trek to Colorado and stayed the night in New Mexico on the way. It was a pretty smooth drive except for the 4-hour delay on the freeway.

Week 36 is all about our first week in Colorado. Don and Carol were still in town since they helped up move and helped us get settled into our hotel. This week the kids attended their new school by our future house, and Taylor attended her first dance class at Starstruck. I even included a photo of Hank for his first day at his new job. Since we have family here, we spent a couple of days with Shauna and her kids. It still feels like we are on an extended vacation for now.....
