So we finally made it to our destination..*actually about a month ago at the end of September is when we officially arrived. We live in the town of Evans a little city connected to Augusta, Georgia. If you're into golf it's where the big Masters tournament is held.

I must admit when we first arrived in Georgia it was oh so different then Washington state it took a little getting used to. Besides the fact that it was still near 90 degrees and very humid. Have I mentioned the bugs yet? Well there are a lot of them. Everyone has a "Bug Man" who comes and sprays regularly. We've had some issues w/ ants but my personal "bug man" has kept them at bay. Guess we'll have to hire one here soon.

Ok, this is probably sounding really negative but I have to say I am really enjoying our Georgia adventure so far and am loving it here. We've already visited my family in Florida two times..that definitely beats flying all day and paying for expensive plane tickets. It's only about a six hour drive. My sister and her family moved to Fort Benning this past summer, so now we're only 3 hours apart. I'm so excited to see and spend more time with her and her family. Our neighbors are nice and the ward is friendly and there's plenty to say about all of the southern hospitality. I feel like Paula Dean might just jump out from behind one of the bushes. It's still hard to be the new guys though. I'm loving the weather now..I won't say very much more about that I promise. It was so hard when we lived in WA during the rainy months when my parents would talk about their Florida weather.

I've had some friends ask about our house and where we're living. Sometimes it's better to picture things when you have a picture. We're just renting right now with an option to buy. We didn't get a chance to go house hunting before we moved and we thought this might be the best option to see what is down here. Basically I just looked for a good school and went from there. We definitely don't live across the street from the base anymore (a very nice luxury in WA). You're usually hard pressed to find a nice neighborhood so close to an Army base like that. So Darryl has a 30 minute commute to work. We sure miss him especially @ lunch time. So this is where we are living for now. There are definitely some pros and cons to this house so we're also working with a realtor. We're loving our new Georgia adventure..most importantly we're loving Daddy being home with us and in a position at work where he'll be teaching and non deployable. We miss our dear friends in WA terribly. There will always be a special place in my heart for WA but especially the friends we met there and will keep always.

P.S. I'll be sending our new address via email..don't forget to check :O)

Of course when you look out your front window and see this...AKA Powder Works Park. Just opened July 08'.

Or I could walk a block to the new middle school and start playing this...

You know something like this was bound to happen....

Just when your world seems perfect...a new adventure waits on the horizon. We miss Dupont and Washington but most especially the friends we hold dear in our heart.
