Life in Colorado

Welp it's official... we're Coloradans- yesterday we picked up our new License plate and had our drivers Licenses switched. The house finally closed on September 13 and we moved in on September 21st. We've been in the house for about two weeks now and are far from feeling totally moved in. Aaron's been working hard. He ripped out the subfloor in the living room giving us a temporary clear view of the basement below. We've taken down a wall and oh soo many other things. And now all of the rooms have new paint and about half of the house has new floors. The kitchen has been gutted and the bathrooms are next on the list. Needless to say it's good to be home but it still sort of feels like we're camping in alot of ways. Aaron's been busy at school creating the curriculum for a class called "the good life" in the bible department exploring philosophy, ethics, and christian worldview. This has been fun for him and exhausting all things considered. Aaron has also started coaching a club Waterpolo team based in Denver- this has been a fun release for him on Monday nights. As for Nay, baby has kept her busy as she tries to unpack boxes here and there and also keep Aricin entertained. Living in Highlands Ranch there are four local rec centers all residents can go to- each rec center has a gym, indoor pool, and other features- one has indoor and outdoor tennis courts, another has a batting cage, it's pretty sweet. Nay brought Aricin to the indoor kids pool this week and he loved it- we might have a little polo player on our hands. Nay has also met a few awesome gals that she has started to become good friends with. And we did manage to make it to a couple of Rockies games- both were fun- not quite a dodger game but we'll call it a close second.

We are definitely feeling more adjusted- but not completely acclimated. We have our moments when we miss sand in toes and California. Aricin is getting bigger and bigger- he's now eatting baby food and loves our dog Jeremiah who sleeps next to Aricin's crib every night. So far we've been blessed with a great Indian Summer- We've nervous or should i say straight scared for the winter and the snows that we will soon see. We miss like crazy all of our friends and family and hope that people start to visit us soon.
