The First Post from our Sixth Home

That's right!  The Ward family has now lived in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Shadyside, Highland Park, Grand Rapids, and now Churchill.   It's funny that we keep using the phrase "getting there" when describing our current state of housekeeping  We're "here", as in, our home, but we are still very much in process of becoming settled.  Thankfully we've have generous friends helping with childcare and unpacking and everything else in between that needs to be done.

The girls continue to do very well.  We love our backyard swingset, the very nearby park and the close-knit neighborhood.  The warm weather was especially helpful this week and lots of neighbors came over to introduce themselves.  We've already checked out the library, the amazing Children's Museum, and our former playgroup spot.  First Trinity was as warm as ever yesterday and we loved worshipping together there as a family of five for the first time.

Jonathan's job is also going extremely well.  He is challenged and invigorated by the work and PNC has shown to be a great work environment.  They already treated the girls and I to a field trip there where we got the personalized tour.  Even better, we had him home today to celebrate President's Day.  Love those bank holidays!

Yes, we're missing Michigan and everything and everyone that is part of that state, but we're getting comfortable in this new-old life here.    We're excited to see what the next few weeks/months/years bring!
