A couple of days ago it was April 9th, exactly one month after leaving Australia and arriving in the US. On that day we sold our apartment in Melbourne and bought our second car, thus ending the first wave of  getting-settled tasks. In the past month we have:
Arrived, found a home, two cars, and a school for the girls. Those were the big decisions and along the way there have been so many other little ones. It has been quite a job and we were very fortunate to have my parents helping us out from the moment we arrived in the country until the first three weeks were over, we had gotten our feet under us a bit and even moved into our new home.
Our new home is simply beautiful and will provide a true oasis from some of the less beautiful things we will encounter in our daily lives here. These are just a few first glimpses to give you an idea of where we are. Of course you will see much more as I am back online now and of course we hope you will come for a visit and see for yourselves!
