I promise you I’d update you on how things are going here, so I put together a little slide show. We are enjoying Bend very much. I had a tough few days a week or so ago. Not knowing anyone was wearing on me but things are looking up! The kids are in Awana (which means 2 hours every week without kids!) this means a lot when you don’t have family in the area to babysit. We’ve also found a church and are really excited to plug in. The kids are thriving here with so much to do outdoors and so many opportunities for learning and exploring. Mr. Frugal and I are enjoying the extra living space and the great neighbors and friends we’ve made.
As I type Mr. Frugal is picking up Grandma, she came up on a train from CA overnight last night and will be staying the weekend with us. The kids have been dying for this moment for weeks.
Thank you for following our journey and supporting our family as we made this huge move – it’s been a good thing for us in more ways than I can count even if we had a rough start. Oh and I’m loving how close everything is – ALL of the stores I shop at are within a 5 minute drive!
