I realized I didn't tell you much about my new job. I will be the receptionist for a law firm. There are 2 lawyers, a husband an wife, so there will just be the three of us. They are gone most of the time I will be there so I'm not sure exactly what I will be doing. I do know I will be learning more and more about law procedures as time goes on. It is a general practice which includes court appointed criminal defense, a little scary but a great learning opportunity. The office is located on the main street of downtown. My favorite coffee shop is just around the corner, all the fun shops (including the yarn shop) are on the next block and the courthouse is just across the street. I am so excited to be in this area, it is exactly where I wanted to be! And I have to buy new clothes!

This little creature is a 'House Centipede'. I find them curled up on the basement floor every once in a while and then the other day I was making my bed and one scurried across the throw pillow. AAAHHHHHHH! It was about 2 inches long and 1/2 an inch wide and faster than Speedy Gonzales. I had to hunt it out from under the bed and finally got it, to your relief I'm sure. I looked on line and found the name and some pictures. I guess they are completely harmless and eat smaller more dangerous bugs so they don't suggest you even try to get rid of them. I'll have to think about that.

We have been having problems with our internet so sorry these pictures are late for those of you who have been anxiously awaiting them.
Everyone started school Monday the 27th. Elijah and I walked Jackie to school and then we drove to his preschool. The walk is beautiful, big trees, gorgeous homes and families everywhere walking their children to school.
Jackie has had a great first week. She has made a new 'best friend', Hailee.
Elijah is really enjoys his time there but is a little apprehensive in the morning. I think he will soon grow out of this.
Jason has had a very busy week although I don't think it was as tough as he thought it would be. He has more info on his blog.
We are enjoying our weekend. Saturday morning I walked to the farmers market, which I do every Saturday, with Liz our law school friend who joined us at the beach. Then we went to the McClain Celtic Festival. It was awesome! There was tons of live music, shopping, dancing, sheep dog demonstrations and kids games, or game I should say. It was held on the grounds of a beautiful old historic home, the Two Mile House. It was like being in Ireland for the day and then you walk to the front of the house, cross the street and you're in the K-Mart parking lot. It's crazy. It's like that everywhere here, I guess because of all the foliage. Monday we might visit a Mennonite farm where they make a lot of wonderful cheese including goat and sheep which Elijah can have. We are missing you all!!
