Driving through New York and Mass. The scenery was gorgeous.
The truck arrived with our stuff yesterday (Mon.). Well, actually, only part of our stuff. The moving company didn't have the size truck trailer that they needed, so they told us up front that they wouldn't be able to take everything in one load. They assured us that they would prioritize to make sure we wouldn't have to do without the things we really needed. Yeah. Right.
We currently are missing two beds, half of the swingset (why would they pack HALF?!), half of the kids outdoor playhouse (Half??), and parts of lamps, bookshelves, the vacuum, etc. We do however, have lots of things we don't need, like a workbench for the garage, our riding lawn mower and all of our Christmas decorations.
The guys who unloaded the truck yesterday were shaking their heads and saying they couldn't understand why the beds weren't at least on the truck, and why the guys in MI left part of the truck empty. Hmmmmm.... Could it be that at 5:30PM, they decided that nothing else would fit?
Well, anyway....we will live without our additional things for the next few weeks.
Saturday, we took the kids to the beach. We had visions of playing in the sand all day but when we got there, it was high tide and there was not a grain of sand in sight! We stayed and played on the rocks, which was still fun.

Waiting for a wave
Shrieks of delight!
A serious lack of sand
Crab that washed up on shore. (This is what I looked like on Saturday)
It is so pretty here. New England definitely has it's own personality.
We went to church on Sunday. It is probably not one we will attend again, but it was good to start the week in worship, surrounded by friendly people. Everyone we have met has been very nice--and our neighbors across the street came over with a housewarming gift.
I do have internet access now, but the wireless isn't working, so my computer is propped up on a box. Speaking of boxes, I have a ton to unpack, so I better get back to them.
