There she is, our new temporarily house. Plum tree in the front, peach in the back.
Living room from front entry.
And the dining room. It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house with a 2 car garage, for $25 more then the first house that was a 3 bedroom.
The back patio. This house doesn't have the dream soccer field backyard behind it, but it's ok. It's enough to kick a ball in. Matthew loves to ride his riding toys in the garage.
Our new neighbors. They love Matthew because he gives them peanut butter Capt. Crunch treats.
Last Friday we went to storytime, at the library on post. We won a Longhorns football that some guy took, so we got a sucker instead. At a trip to Target, Matthew convinced us he needed a Lightning McQueen bike helmet. (It came with a bike bell.)
Beyond our house is Fort Hood range. This means we have wandering neighbors. The 1st 3 days we were here, we were blessed with their presence.
Look at those horns. I love having no houses behind me. If I get homesick I just go lean on the fence and it feels like home.
Here is Matthew in the empty moving truck. He loved running up and down that 26 ft of moving joy.
Yesterday we tried to get back on routine. We took a walk with Missy and painted.
Being an artist, I was sooooo excited that he painted for an unheard of 40 minutes!
Monday we went to JAG so they could help us get our deposit back from the other house's property management company. That's soooo nerve racking for me, but it's the principle of it. Our property management company got word on Monday that our house smelled like cigarettes and by this morning installed odor blocker in the vents. They are doing great so far.
Today Phil finally got to his unit around noon. In his platoon is a guy he served with for many years at Ft. Riley. Hopefully that makes him feel a little more at home. The word on the street sounds like he'll be in the last unit in Iraq. (Poetic justice since he was in the first unit into Iraq.) He might be leaving in May. We'll just have to wait and see. Matthew and I are ok with it. We figured this day would come. We're military!
