Here are a few facts I have learned about our new town in the last week we've been out here:
1. It is not uncommon to see between six to eight big semi's with some sort of big trailer on the back waiting at each intersection.
2. The parades don't skimp on candy. At home it was like each kid had to fight over about four pieces of candy. Here, each kid got about two handfuls from each float.
3. There are alot of big pickup trucks that have the wo...rks on them.
4. The Walmart here sells big plastic boxes that they try to pass of as homes. But hey! They are insulated, have cable and ac, all for a steal of 20,000! ;)
5. It's alot nicer than people make it sound out to be. It's very family friendly with all the new parks, splash pad and the youth pool. I'm happy to be calling it home because it's where we are a family again!

As far as unpacking, it's safe to say that I am probably 80 percent of the way done. The new place is really nice! We are really liking it and now spacious it is. It's close to Walmart and the grocery stores, so that is a bonus as well.
The kids and I are going to go to a splash park this afternoon after Vivian wakes up. I have to plug the street number into the GPS, as I really have NO idea where anything is yet, and it's pretty confusing to me! But we'll get there, and we'll enjoy keeping cool. It's not the big lake, but it'll do for today. :)

This guy ( please excuse the messy face) just turned three. I love my kids, but not the age three. The saying terrible twos is WAY off in my opinion. It should be terrible threes. At least with all four of my kids. It's like someone flips a switch when they turn three and they get so SASSY! By the time three and a half rolls around they are somewhat better, but man oh man, Logan has been trying my patience lately with his major temper tantroms. I am just glad that Aaron will be home in ten days to help me deal with the chaos of raising four children. Then it's off to North Dakota we go for good!
