After about 19 hours of driving, 4 meals stops, 7 hours at a hotel, and 8 restroom stops (one of those being in the great outdoors) we are finally here!! We were astonished when we walked into our new "home" to find it quite roomy and beautiful. It has more than met our expectations. It is a breath of fresh air for me to walk into a beautiful home as this and not have to think about my normal routine and managing our "stuff".

Sean headed off with the older five kids to Kennedy Space Center for the day. They will have lunch with an astronaut and will be experiencing the Space Shuttle Launch.
I've had a relaxing time here with John and Rebekah. We went for a walk around the neighborhood, ate lunch, blew bubbles, took naps and played Polly Pockets and Memory. It's been a long time since I've had a day alone with two preschoolers. I often miss (or don't take) these kind of opportunities to be with them. It's been fun for this mommy. Later we will get on the swim gear and walk down to the beach to watch the Space Shuttle launch and build our Polly Pockets a sandcastle.
