home? at last

so here we are, settled in at the lake house with tricia's parents. it's a great place to spend the summer and relax. i've applied to burlington-edison high school. it's pretty exciting; they have a really cool social studies curriculum. i'll keep you up to date. the big issue lately is whether we could live here in the pnw. obviously a large number of friends and family and our church is here = lots of support for new parents. but seriously, the weather is an issue. luckily, it has been quite nice and sunny so i feel a little less sad to be back. i do miss mexico, the humidity and sun, the ocean and the people. i gotta work something out to do both. maybe in a few years. now we're just settling back into normal life. i miss the road.
