There's no place like home!

At first I thought moving to Arizona would be a fun adventure.  I guess it will be after I am not so homesick.  We have been here for just a week and I am so homesick.  It's funny that I never appreciated being around our family and friends that much.  We are finally moved in most of the way.  For an entire week we didn't have cable or internet and needless to say we have been a little bored.  It is too hot to let Emerson play outside so we are stuck in the house, just the 3 of us and I think Emerson is going crazy.  Emerson loved going on walks in his stroller but it is way too hot right now to take him out ever.  It never cools down here.  Last night at 8 pm it was still 105 outside.  We tried to go on a walk but it was way too hot.  It was nice living at my parents house because not only did we have lots of people around to hang out with, we had my mom's food to eat too.  Now we are stuck with my cooking which has never been a strong area for me.  Anyway, Mike starts orientation on Wednesday.  This will be the real test for me and Emerson.  This will be the start of us being on our own entirely.  I am so excited to come home for Rob's wedding in just over 2 weeks.  I am lucky that we live close enough that it is a little easier to come home.  I will post some pictures of our house later today or tomorrow.

Val- I am SO sorry you are so homesick. I can only imagine what you are going through. That's great that you get to come home for Rob's wedding, though! I didn't know he was getting married- how exciting. Hopefully Tannon and I will be visiting you guys soon. I want to see your place! Love you guys!

I miss you sweet thing.. notice how I have called you every day since you have left! :) I remember being terrified about going on mission that I wouldn't be able to talk to the ones that I loved... It all works out. I remember thinking I would never be as lonely as I was the Christmas I spent alone in Illinois... I survived. We will stay in good contact through phone and blogging and before you know it you will have so many friends there, you won't have time for bloggin :)

I'm sorry you're homesick. I couldn't imagine having to move away from my "little bubble". At least you have your little family there, right? Hang in there. I look forward to seeing you at Rob's wedding.

Mike and Val, I hope you do not mind me checking out your blog. I did not even know you had a baby. Not much of a baby any more. He is so cute. Dental School!!! Way to go Mike. I am so happy to see your family healthy and happy.
