This blog should really be called the Adventures of Annie and Her Tears, because again, I teared up a bit when I saw the Opera House. We had done all this planning, and now it was really happening!
After settling in to our condo for a couple of hours, we went to a neighbor's house to watch the fireworks display. We are two blocks from the beach, but they are just directly across from the fireworks, and it feels so good to be in a completely different place but have people as friends right away. Everyone was so welcoming, and the all the kids hit it off right away.

I saw this...Jackson is clearly not wasting any time making new friends. :)
Kenyon tried his best, but this is what he was doing on the living room floor while the fireworks boomed...
We look forward to a quiet few days here getting to know our new home, and then we're planning on taking off for a bit of a road trip before the new school year begins at the end of January.
I hope all of you in the States are enjoying ringing in the new year--we miss everyone so much already!
