We're moving!

I tend to write about tiny details and forget about life-changing events, so I thought I best put it in writing now before it's old news: We're moving! We are closing on our first home on Friday (6 days!!!) My parents and Sisay and I will be the co-owners of a beautiful home right here in Eliot. The first level is a completely separate in-law apartment and we will live upstairs in a 4 bedroom unit.

The stars have certainly aligned for us. Sisay was informed that we would have to move off the Green Acre campus within the next couple months, and after a brief moment of panic followed by a week or two, we had found our dream house and started the process. The house sits on 4.5 mostly-wooded acres. You know what this means, right??! Chickens! Gardens! Fruit trees! Free firewood! Nature walks! Goats! (okay, maybe not this one for a few years.) And to think that my babies get to grow up under the same roof as their grandparents! (who, by the way, are the ones who have made this all possible.) We are beyond excited. And we cannot wait to welcome as many of you into our home as are willing to make the journey to the far north. or pretty-far-north.

First up: Sisay's sister and her baby. They're coming about a week after we move and will stay with us for two months. Sisay will be leaving on January 13th to do some work in Haifa for 3 weeks, so it will be so nice to have the company. Anyone else? I've got my calendar in hand.

And so we happily, oh so happily, oh so VERY happily, say goodbye to 2012: the year of endless tantrums (Violet), incessant whining (Samaya), spiraling health (me), and that period of time we'll just refer to as March-april (no, I'm not referring to a girl's name.)

Here's to new beginnings and plenty of (forced) growth. Onward and upward, shall we?
