Adjusting to our New Home

Well I have certainly been missing in action from the blogger world lately! A lot has been going on with us and the kids. We've recently moved out of our Ladera Ranch home, which most of you know, and we've found a nice home in the Murrieta area, right on the border of Temecula. It is actually located right near the Temecula wineries. The area is newer and the homes are all very nice out here, not to mention they have great school districts (major plus). They seem to have lots of shopping areas out here and the Promenade mall in Temecula is becoming one of our favorite spots.

We are settling in very nicely in the new home and the kids seem to have really taken a liking to the house. They are adjusting better than we had thought. I think they are happy that they have more room to run around in and are happy to finally not have to share a room anymore. I have pretty much finished getting their rooms set up, just working on last minute details. (Will share pictures once they are finished). Avery and Callum are excited about the garden that they started out in the backyard with daddy. They are in the process of growing tomatoes, carrots, peppers, squash, basil, oregano, and cilantro. Is that it? Oh, and Avery has her pretty sunflower growing back there as well.

We've been keeping busy with trips to the local parks, joining new mommy groups, and are beginning to make new friends. Avery will be starting preschool at the beginning of October where she'll be going twice a week. Her school looks like a lot of fun and they seem to offer a lot more activities than her last school. They even have a dress up classroom, where they have different costumes to choose from. I know she is going to have so much fun. Callum and I will be taking a mommy and me art class next month as well. I am going to be starting the potty training process very shortly and getting my little guy ready for preschool. I can't believe I will soon have two little ones in preschool. Where is the time going? I will be updating the blog frequently and new pictures are coming very soon!
