Life in TN

Well we made it in. We got to my parents about 8:30-9 pm on Saturday. The kids did real well and so did I. We stayed at the Welches home on Friday night. The kids were excited that they were staying at Emmas house. Their first co-ed sleep over......no Emma was not in the same room but it counts right?? They got up really early on Saturday so we went and finished cleaning the house. Then we headed back to Martis house to say goodbye. I think that was one of the headest things I have done so far. I made it through it all and had to struggle not to loose it on the drive here. So far the kids think we are on vacation. They don't quite comprehend that Daddy goes to work everyday and he usually dosen't do that while we are on vacation. Matt and I are going to look for apartments this weekend. It is too much of a long drive to get to work everyday from here so we will see what we find.
It has been nice to stay with my parents. They hardly ever get to see the grandkids so they have enjoyed it. Papa found a turtle the other day and the kids had so much fun watching him. The boys named him Ladybug at first and then decided to stick with Turtle the turtle. We let him go the other night and the boys look for him everytime we are outside. I got some pictures but I haven't gotten them up on here. It would take a really long time on Dial up. Yes we are WAY out in the country! :) So as soon as we get DSL I will get them up for you. Grama took the kids on a wagon ride adventure this morning. My parents yard is on a slope and pretty bumpy- but she hauled the wagon around the house and down the gravel driveway. I am not sure that I have seen the boys laugh so much and have a ton of fun on a wagon ride. Of course they have never had one on such a rough road. They loved it and begged to go again. Mom and I took turns since it was a great work out.
Matt likes his job so far. They are finishing up a project this week so there isn't much for him to really do till next week. But he seems to be happy. I will let youknow more as he gets into it. There are so many wonderful benifits to working there that we are truly blessed to have found this job.
Well that is about it on the Clements homefront for now. I will try and update again soon. Miss all y'all!

Marie,
I so remember how with every move it took about a year to really feel like home. What am I saying, remember, I'm living it now :) I am praying that this transition is a little quicker for you and your crew since you have family close now. Enjoy your parents on our behalf too since we are so far from ours right now. We will be praying for the perfect apartment for you all, for the kids and for the drive for Matt to work. SO glad to hear that things are going well. I miss you dear friend. God bless.

Yeah, when are you coming home??? Cauy keeps asking to go to Ree's house, Ian's house. Doesn't that just break your heart??? How can you say no to a face like his?? :)
