Busy Month Moving

As you can tell from my lack of blog entries we have had a busy month. On the 15th of the month we moved....for the 6th time in the past 27 months. YIKES. And when we move it´s like moving a small army. There are many people that must adjust to a new place. Thankfully all our kiddos are very flexible and this move went smoothly. We hired a truck to take a couple of loads (the trucks here aren´t big at all) and we hired seminary students to help us (read: help the teenage boys) carry the heavy stuff. All in all it went well. We are settled in our new place and have all the boxes unpacked (except for my kiddos´ board games....gotta find a spot for those still). We have a bit more room at this house. It actually has 4 bedrooms. All of our other houses in Coch have had 3. It´s very nice to be able to spread out the kids a bit. All 5 girls still share a room, but they are okay with that. It´s giggles every night. ;^)

Here´s a view of the city from my desk. I love looking out my window so much I think I won´t put up a curtain.

And here´s a picture of the tienda directly across the street. Think of it as a very tiny 7-11 except it´s only ´walk up´ walk up to the window and tell the owner what you want...they keep the doors locked because of crime. The owner is so glad we moved in. We buy plenty of milk, bread and butter not to mention all the Coca Cola Zeros.

Here´s a pic of our street from Josh and David´s window.

Glad the move went smoothly! Hope you love your new house and that it can be something more permanent this time. :-)

Denise, Why are you moving so often? Are leases that short or are you trying to find something that works best for everyone? Wish I could have been there to unpack.

Jessica, we are really liking our new house. We have more ´space´ to spread out a bit. I, too, hope it can be a bit more permanent. Two years would be great. I hope your visit back to P´ville was a good one. How is your eye lately?

Becky, the owner of the house we were living in wanted to sell it. Many people here with more than one house are concerned that one might be taken away so many people are selling.
