A little update

I just wanted to check in since it has been quite awhile
Life is really good
We are loving it here in California
I can't believe we have been here a year already
Its finally feeling like home

David is almost 2 and a half now
He is a little ball of energy
And by far the most athletic toddler I have ever meet
It will be interesting to see what the future has in store for these talents

Brianna will be 4 in three weeks 
Seems crazy she is not a baby or even a toddler any more
She such a girly girl
She loves her nails painted and she really wants to get her ears pierced
We shall see
 Maybe for her birthday   

Bri and David are the same exact size 
Everywhere we go people ask if they are twins
They are 18 mos apart but you would never know it
They are so close and play together all day
I even hear David talking to her in his sleep

William just turned 8
He is a great big brother
He goes back to school next week
And he is counting down the days
He will be going into 2nd grade this year
I love that he is still so excited about school

Right now he loves all things science
He is really into dinosaurs
He also loves cars 
He wants a mustang when he learns to drive
A few years ago that would have seemed so far away 
But at the rate that time is just flying by I am afraid he will be driving in the blink of an eye

Its amazing to me that Halloween is only two weeks away
It's hard to believe its fall
Most days the kids run around in shorts
And the water park is still a frequent destination
And afternoons are enjoyed on the beach
  The leaves haven't changed 
And I am not sure if they will
Its different and feels a little weird sometimes
But its a good weird

Checking in

Hmmm... Where to start?
Its been busy since I last checked in here
The craziness of moving 2,760 miles has slowly worn off
And this place is feeling much less like vacation
and more and more like home

The kids are adjusting amazingly well
They love it here
William and Bri started school at the beginning of the month
We home schooled William for a year and a half so it was an adjustment
But he is doing well and has made lots of new friends

Bri is going to preschool 3 days a week in the morning
I must have gone back and forth 100 times
if I should send her or keep her home another year
But she loves school and her teacher
So I'm happy

And its given me a little time during the day
That it is just me and David
We have never really had 1 on 1 time together before
So its really nice doing things with just the two of us

I am sure there is a ton that I am not thinking of
But I just want to stop by and give a quick update
I have so many photos to post but I don't want to overwhelm this post
So check out my Flickr on the right sidebar
and you can see some of what we have been up to

beach day

Today was our first real beach day
And it was so nice
Its a lot closer then the beach was when we lived on the east coast
So I think we will be visiting pretty frequently
Now that I know how to get there and all

Its funny the little differences between the beach here and back east
For one the water is sooo much colder then it is in Jersey

William was fearless and splashed around
But there is no way you will catch me in there past my ankles anytime soon

Also the water is so blue here
I'm used to a greener hued ocean

And the sand seems to be much coarser
But maybe that was just the beach we were on today
I don't know 

And I just can't get over the mountains
I feel like everywhere I look there are big beautiful mountains
Even at the beach!
