What a Difference a Week Makes

Last Tuesday, we were watching some able-bodied men load all of our earthly possessions onto a moving trailer.  Attached to a very large truck that was driven by a super nice guy named Dennis.  Last Friday, he arrived in Foster City, CA to deliver our earthly possessions.  We lost track of a TV for a minute, but we found it.  Thank goodness.

The weather is beautiful, the neighborhood is friendly, and the schools are fantastic.  I'm so very impressed with the caliber of the school the kids are in here compared to what they were forced to attend in Oregon.  I see homework every day for my second grader.  I was lucky to pry out of him what he learned in Oregon.  I see vocabulary words from my 5th grader.  That didn't happen in Oregon.  They have PE three days a week!  Hello?!!  I see the reason our school has an over 900 API score.

I've unpacked, managed to get a few things accomplished, and casually started looking for a job.  I'm not in a huge hurry, but if something comes along that I can't pass up, I am for sure going to jump on it.

And that's my update for now!
