Here! And Loving It!

First off, I apologize for the lack of posts. We have horrible internet here at the park, not to mention we've been busy-busy!

I just worked the last 1/2 hour on a great picture post, but then blogger ate it! So this will be a condensed version, with a pix post to follow once I can get to town & to the library to use their wi-fi.

Well, we made it to Gunnison on Easter Sunday; and after going over Monarch Pass, I was never so glad to get down off a mountain! Yikes! The plowed snow banks were up to my Jeep windows!

We're in the middle of a major/minor winter storm right now. It's major if you're from Wisconsin, minor if you're from Colorado : ) Monday we went exploring. It was in the upper 50's, we were in our short sleeves, and Sis got a little sunburn. Today it's snowpants & boots!

We'll be hunkering down to do schoolwork around the woodstove today. I'm really glad we collected firewood yesterday before this storm hit!

Steve started his new job. Tuesday was lots of paperwork, Wednesday was a guided tour of the canyons & around the lake, and I believe he actually did some real work yesterday : )

Our apartment is wonderful. The views are ridiculously beautiful, and I don't know what I ever did to deserve such a blessing. God is so awesome.

We went and looked at a piece of land last night. It's close to work, big enough to farm, has amazing views, year-round access, and a seasonal creek. And how does a yearly tax bill of way less than $100 sound Wisconsinites?!

Well, the kids are rousing from their beds. Need to get to our day.

Missing you all. Can't wait to share pictures with you. Have a great weekend!

Well, I have to say that I'm glad the snow is there instead of here.

Glad to hear it's going well. What a fun time together as a family!

Looking forward to seeing pictures.
