Moving *is* stressful but it seems like you are looking at the bright side!


A one mile commute on a bike? That is heaven! I have been thinking about you a lot, wondering how you are doing. I hope the boys calm down and settle in quickly. I am so happy for you--the birds, the yard, no more freeway noise, even the paneling. =)


I'm excited for you guys!
Call when you are coming this way. And I'll have to plan a trip out your way.


Sometimes a magic eraser will clean that lino. But, more often than not, I can never get it clean again.


Yeah magic eraser is what came to my mind. Good luck recovering with the move. The boys will adapt. It will feel like two steps forward and one step back for a while but you'll find ways to help them cope and feel secure. I'm glad you're enjoying it!


So glad you guys are starting to settle in. I've been waiting for a post to hear how you're doing. Our rental was SO filthy when we moved in too, but I was lucky and had my mom come help for a day or two. It grosses me out that people can just live like that.
Good luck with everything. That yard will be great especially this summer!


Ditto on the magic eraser. Glad you guys are getting settled. I'm sure the boys will adjust soon.. it's hard for everyone when you move.


I buy this stuff at family dollar called oxy something. It comes in a tub. One scoop with water and one cup of bleach. It foams up and then just wipes things really easy. It will leave a little dust film which isnt bad and then just mop again with clear water. No scrubbing needed. I love that stuff and it's great for white socks too. (my neighbor told me her grandma does this) It really works.Im glad your new ward is nice. It should be that way!!!


I'm glad it was a good move!


i am so glad you guys are settling in. i've been out of the blog thing for awhile. it has been great reading and seeing what you have been up to!


cutest picture ever!!!


Oh, Ned is so cute! That stinks though that the place wasn't clean--I would have had a meltdown! It sounds like you are doing really well though and I'm glad you like your new place. I hope the boys settle in soon! We moved when Forrest was about 2 1/2 and the night after we hauled everything into the new place he said in a wavering voice, "Mom, I want to go home now." Broke my heart! So I totally understand. The yard is sure to help :)


More Magic Eraser love. But be aware that it is a microabrasive sponge so it can take off any shiny coating on the flooring.

And I love the playroom! You did such a great job with it. I'm sure the rest of the house will come together as nicely, too.
