First Time Walking Home From School

We now live within two blocks of the school AA attends so walking on nice days will become de rigeuer! We practiced last week before the actual move so that she would begin to be comfortable with the BIG move. We now live in the same club that we went to every weekend to swim in the pool so the place is very familiar to her. But with any major life change, we knew the more we talked about it and showed her the new home-place, hopefully the move would be non-eventful (that's another story how it really went!).
Leaving school:

The school (church) property is very large so we encounter these sign posts:

Lots of skipping and happiness using the sidewalk:

Entering the condo property:

She was actually putting a Harry Potter spell on me here (probably "stupefy"!)

We are home!

We have downsized and are really enjoying the new location. We are a bit exhausted but know this will pass in a few weeks once I have the boxes unpacked and some routine and order back to our lives!

We keep talking of down-sizing too. I'm thinking our next move (3-5 years) will bring this. I am SO ready! Good luck with your move.
