All Systems Go

Our server which hosts my blog is finally back up and running after the move to our new house and some technical difficulties in the initial set-up. I still don’t have my actual computer in working order yet so all of my high quality photos are trapped in my camera until we can make time for that little piece of the puzzle. Luckily, I have been pretty much on top of this unpacking and organizing business so the kids rooms, playroom, kitchen, dining area, bathrooms, living room, and nursery are pretty well put together at this point. Don’t get me wrong, we still have a garage full of boxes that have yet to be touched and I have grandiose ideas about what I want to decorate our living room and bedroom with, although I know that is something that is on the back burner until sometime later this summer. But I feel good about saying that we are well on our way to making this our home.

For me, the most fulfilling part of this process is finally have all of Little Ninja’s things out of totes and into an actual nursery where they are much more tangible. Little summer rompers and tiny organic tee’s are sorted and hanging in the closet. An assembled crib is taking up residency in the corner with a perfectly adorable ninja blanket that a friend made for us, draped over the side and a gray chevron sheet occupying the mattress. My stash of cloth diapers are all prepped and in their delegated fabric bins next to the changing depot, waiting for a sweet little bum to cover. I have even started packing my hospital bag which makes this impending birth seem like its just around the corner, which I suppose it is.

These last two weeks are going to fly by so quickly and although we still have a ton to unpack from this move, it is more important right now that we take a little family time with the kidlets before this next transition starts. We have also been occupying them with as many play dates as we can manage each week because they are constantly craving time with friends and love having them over to play in their new backyard. This weekend is Zoren’s big dance showcase where he will be performing three different numbers with his tap, ballet, and hip hop classmates and he is beyond thrilled. I can’t wait to see him up on the big stage doing what he loves and soaking up the attention and applause from the audience. This kid was made to dance and although he would prefer to be improvising to Dubstep most of the time, he is also great at learning new moves and routines from his awesome dance instructors.

I am hoping to get the rest of the technology in this house up and running over the weekend so I can share some better pictures of the house, Zoren’s dance showcase, and any other fun tidbits we have had locked up in the camera for the last month. Until then, here are some from my phone to start things off…

While we are quite occupied with the new house, baby prepping, and dance rehearsals, our thoughts and hearts are very much with two of our best friends back in Wisconsin who have recently and unexpectedly lost someone incredibly special and dear to them. Also, right now in Colorado there are some pretty bad wildfires destroying forests and homes and forcing many residents to evacuate. We are all left just waiting and watching as these fires burn out of control. Unfortunately, this is something our state deals with every year and there is little that can be done to stop these fires once they start. The brave men and women of our fire departments work tirelessly to get them contained but with the hot temps, high winds, and little to no precipitation, there isn’t much that can be done. We will raid our stockpile of canned and boxed goods and donate them to food banks that help the evacuees, continue to do rain dances, and hope for containment.
