We're Here!

Well, we've been in Arkansas now for about 2 months.  I haven't posted anything yet because my computer wouldn't let me load any pictures.  Here are a few of our new home and town.  There are so many things that we love about Arkansas.  First of all, it is absolutely beautiful.  Everything is green and there are trees and lakes everywhere.  I also love the fact that we have a house and yard with a gorgeous view.  We love the people and friends that we've made so far.  We have also been able to enjoy some of the delicious BBQ here.  I don't like the humidity, bugs, and being away from friends and family.  And I'm nervous about the tornados.  But other than that we're having a good time.

We packed up my dad's truck and trailer, and they drove with us over 1300 miles to Arkansas.  It was soooo nice of them to drive up with us.  They even kept the girls in their car the whole time, which was WONDERFUL!!!  It made the car ride much more pleasant for Marcus and I.  It saved us a lot of money and it was so fun to have them there with us.  When they got here, my dad built a rope swing on a big tree we have in our backyard and the girls love it.

This is our new home.  It's twice as big a our condo so it feels like a mansion!  I love having so much space.  I even like cleaning it, which I'm sure will wear off after awhile.

This is a picutre of Marcus's school.  It's such a beautiful campus and he is enjoying school a lot, although he's really really busy.

We have the best view from our backyard. 

We went to some friends and rode ponies and played with animals.  The girls were in heaven. 

Livvy was drenched in sweat from the humidity but it didn't seem to bother her one bit.
