We're here and now we have internet!

We arrived in Glen Allen VA on June 15. I was a bit nervous about the house because I had never seen it and Bobby was not giving me the best description. There was no need for nerves though because the house is perfect, better than I could have asked for! It has plenty of room for all our stuff and our kids and didn't look cluttered when we moved in all our stuff, that's a far cry from our apartment. As an added bonus the house is totally adorable from the outside too with a front porch and a swing and a large back patio. I'm thrilled and will post pictures as soon as I can.
It took two weeks but now we have the internet - yahoo! Just in time too as I have so much paperwork to do for my teaching license here in VA.
Some of you may have noticed that we are having another boy. Wow- four boys in a row. I admit I wanted a girl but this will be exciting too and Ayden will have a buddy close to his age to play with. I'm sure he'll love having a little brother. So I convinced Bobby, with a lot of help - thanks everyone, that Seamus is not a good name for a child. We have narrowed the names down to several and I put a poll up so go vote on which name you like best. Bobby makes no promises that this will be the name we choose but I wanted to see what everyone liked.

I just wanted to thank everyone that helped us with this move. Thanks Sheryl and dad for watching the kids for a week and half while we got the apartment ready and for making us dinners and such. Thank you Holly for cutting the kid's hair one last time and letting them play at your house while we got stuff done. Thanks to Amy for coming for a last minute visit and folding all our laundry and helping pack up the boy's room. I loved seeing you and your gorgeous baby! Thank you Marcie and Jeff for letting us crash at your house on our drive up to VA and thank you Mom and Dad Orr for picking up the kids and the airport and entertaining them while we drove up to VA! Everyone was such a huge help and we really appreciate it.

Good to see you're back up and blogging and that you made it to VA in one piece! :D

I'm with Bobby, I like the name Seamus, but I can see where he will always have trouble with people not pronouncing it correctly. People will want to call him sea-mus instead of sha-mus.

Can't wait to see pics of the house!

Oh I'm so glad that you are back. I have missed you!!! OH, and I'm so glad that Bobby gave up his name!! LOL I'm going to vote. I think I like Liam Hunter. Hmm...I have to think about it.
