Living in the central time zone has only made our children wake up earlier. Today at 6:00 a.m., Laura (who is sleeping in my bed because Jim is in Knoxville picking up the "stuff" we couldn't fit into the U-Haul truck) wakes up looking for the items she dragged to bed with her last night. Her latest fixation is a very small finger puppet baby Jesus from our Christmas nativity soft toy. I can't tell you how many times we have searched the house high and low looking for this small figure to avoid a major meltdown.
Grant was up at 6:45 a.m. (not for the first time!!) ready to greet us with big smiles and coos. I took this picture as we attempted to go to Gillam Farms on Wednesday to pick blueberries. We sadly found out when we arrived that they no longer allow you to pick the fruit because of all the latest sanitation issues with the tomato pickers.
By 7:00 a.m, Laura was in her tap shoes requesting music to put on a show for me.
Overall, our last two weeks in Searcy have been pretty good. The house is nearly set up, thanks to my parents who have been a tremendous help to us. As Jim's blog states, Laura still asks to go home atleast a couple times everyday. I mimic her feelings as well. We are definitely still adjusting to our new home. As Jim reminds me when we are feeling homesick for our friends in Knoxville, he says "we always have each other."
