well, we moved into our new house this past weekend with the help of andrew's sweet parents(who are so good at getting things done), my mother who kept elisha while we moved, and lots of friends from our Bible study group... many many thanks!!!
i guess for only having been here for a week, we are pretty settled. we have figured out some of the quirks of our older home(sorry if you shiver while using our guest bathroom-- don't know why they didn't include a heat vent in there?)... some of the quirks are still a mystery- lots of light switches that don't seem to do anything.
elisha loves his new digs-- plenty of room to run around inside. he has been loading his wagon up with various things and then pushing it at break neck speeds around the house. his room still echos a little, but he sleeps well. otis is desperately missing his doggy door, but maybe in a couple weeks we will have a fence up and get him another door. we are going to get the kind that only opens when he is near it so that elisha won't crawl out of it ;-)
i will try to post some picture soon- i'll try to avoid the desire to get things just so before i do, b/c who knows when things will be 'finished'... with the little one on the way i'm giving myself a year to be settled in totally(pictures on the wall etc)
