(The new header is of the kids on our back screened porch before heading to the 4th of July parade and fireworks. )
We are finally online in SC! Our move was...eventful. Unfortunately all of our stuff didn't fit in the uhaul, so we had to put some things in storage. Keith will be back in a few weeks to get it all. On a good note, our house is wonderful! We really like it, as well as our neighborhood. Lots of trees and winding roads. One thing that is hard to get used to (Monica- you are not going to like this) there are tons of frogs at night! Loud, hopping frogs everywhere.
I registered the kids for school today and everyone is so friendly. I was even lucky enough to get Maia into the day care I wanted (GS). It was recommended to me by lots of people and I have been on the waiting list since May. The director flat out told me that I wouldn't get her in until next school year. After visiting a few other centers in town (and leaving in tears) I stopped by GS just to introduce myself and see what exactly I was waiting a year for! They showed me the 2 year old class and I noticed that they looked young. The director confirmed that they were a young group. I mentioned that Maia was 2 and a half. She asked if she was potty trained and I said yes. The director said, "Maybe we should go check out the 3 year old class." Long story short, there were 2 openings in the 3 year old class and they felt Maia could handle it. So the 2 spots went to Maia and my niece, Cadance. They will be in the same class! Cross your fingers that it goes well. I know nothing will ever compare to where she was in Florida (Hi M, S and T), but I feel pretty good about this place.
I don't have many pictures because I couldn't find the charger for my camera battery, but I have some of 4th of July. We've also been to a water park, beach and Hilton Head.
