...and life goes on....

Well I have started work, Jackson has started school, Qyanna has started going to her new babysitter. Last week and this week I have been in training for my new job working at the Arc of Anchorage. So far so good. Jackson is in second grade. There is a small world connection between his teacher and a former co-worker from Kotzebue. His teacher grew up with my friend Jean. We found this wonderful lady to watch Qyanna. She is closing on a house just around the corner from where we are living, and the place she is staying at for the last two weeks is just down the street from the Arc where I have been doing my training. Qyanna just loves playing with her 3 month year old. She goes over there on Wed, Thurs, and Fri.

So here are some really cute pictures of the kids.
She stole my phone and was acting like she was talking to someone!

Getting settled in

Well we have been in the house for almost two weeks. We are unpacked  and settled in. The kids are comfortable with the house, and it feels like home. Next week life starts to take off. I start work at the Arc on Tuesday, and Tuesday is the first day of school for Jackson. With me starting work Qyanna will start going to the babysitter on Wed (Luke has Mondays and Tuesdays off). We found this really nice lady who has a baby at home who is looking to take on one or two more little ones. So it is perfect for us. That is really just about it.

These are some really cute pictures and videos of the kids.

We are IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So the big news for the week is that we have moved into our house. It is wonderful! On top of it all I have unpacked and organized the house. We still need a few things for the house, but nothing that we can't live without.
This week I had an interview with Chugiak Elementary School. I really hope I hear back from them, if not I do have a job offer still from the Arc.
Luke's 32nd birthday was Friday. Since he had to work we celebrated on Thursday night when he was home. We made home made pizza and I made a pistachio cake. It was all very yummy.

Pictures for this week are of the house and Luke's birthday.
