Here is a quick update of what we've been up to since we left Provo:
- Jay arrived at our new home and with the huge help of his parents (which we appreciated very much) unpacked, cleaned, and fixed some minor things in our home
-Sofia arrived a couple of days later with the kids : ) and was super happy to start a new adventure with her favorite people on earth (husband and children) in her new castle/house
-Gabi is 90% potty trained and loves having so much room to play
and Tiago already feeds himself (Iwish)
-we actually have a beautiful pool just 3 houses down from us. I just haven't had a chance to take a picture of it yet. But the pool makes me feel like I'm living in a vacation resort... I love it!
-Jay started his doctorate program and he is very pleased with it. All his teachers know his name already - - - I think it's because he is the smartest and definately the best looking student they have!
-Mesa is hot (just like everyone told us!) but we are loving the heat
-Our new ward family seems to be wonderful, lots of friendly people and lots of little kids (they have 3 nurseries)
We miss our dear family and friends, but we feel very good in this new place. We do have extra room in our new castle so come visit us.

OK... I'm a bit nervous about this... should I really embark on a task such as keeping a blog? It seems like everyone who is someone is doing it! Yet I learned when I was younger that one shouldn't do something just because everyone else is doing it. Right?
I already feel the weight of responsibility on my shoulders. Not good, not good.
We'll give it a try. If it works, great. If my next blog isn't until one year from now : ) well... just don't hate me for it.
