settling in (sort of!)

well, we've been here for a week now, and we're slowly settling in. we have been blessed with ALOT of stuff, and thank goodness this is a large house- i don't know where we'd go with it all if it wasn't! we have made several trips back to new berlin, and with the exception of a few odds and ends, we have all our belongings here in monroeton. now, it just remains to find a place to put it all! organization is key. shelves are helpful, too! i can see that i will need to read a few books about managing my household! there is much household to manage! and after organizing all my canned goods on the shelf in the basement, i can see that we will be eating alot of tomatoe products! chili, spanish rice, spagetti, rabbit stew...

all major projects are on hold. we are concentrating on envirothon- mainly the oral component. this is a mandatory speech that must be presented to a panel of judges on a given scenario. this year it is about problems with the Appalachian trail. the kids have all been working hard on it, and it's coming along nicely. just a few finishing touches, and then we're off to penn state on monday. thankfully, dave can come along to help, as i will also be taking B along. it should be interesting!

in between all that's going on, i have managed to start my flower garden. M helped me on sunday, and so did N. dave and i also planted potatoes last night. and there is still mounds and piles of laundry, and i have to make dinner every once in a while....

here is a google map link for an aerial view of our house. it was taken a few years ago, but it's still pretty accurate. you should be able to cut and paste it into the address bar. now that you know where we live and how to get here, stop in and visit us for awhile! you could stay for dinner- we'll just add another quart of tomatoes to the stew...,-76.468728&spn=0.000843,0.001499&t=h&z=19
