So, we are settled in, for the most part. There are still some boxes to unpack and a few rooms to better set up and figure out. But we are loving it here. The extra space, the interesting downtown neighborhood, the amazing smell of the ocean (everyday!), the yummy Italian bakeries and tea house - we're loving it here. It's been a crazy summer with the move. It's so hard to believe that it's over.
This week Jeremy starts up with school again. It will be a change for him in a few ways. While he's at the same school, he'll be in a different building on campus - which will probably feel like a different school in some ways. Fortunately the building he's moving to has air conditioning. Anyway, besides the change in classroom he'll also be starting up with soccer again and then on top of all of that will be the longer commute to work now that we're living in Gloucester. It will take some adjusting to for him and also for Harrison and myself. We think it will be worth it though.
Harrison is growing up so fast. In the last two months he's turned into the busiest little boy. He's a master crawler. He likes to help me call the kitties. He acts interested in things we are eating but when he's given the chance to test it out he's not all that interested anymore. He seems to love the new house. In the last few days he's discovered just how much he loves to climb the stairs. We take walks just about daily (sometimes more than one a day) and usually end up in our new favorite spot - a little place down by the docks where we like to spend time watching the boats and eating Cheerios.
Here are a few photos from our day at the park today. We got him a new red ball on the way but was much more interested in the pine cones and grass. He's a little bit of a nature kind of guy.
