We’ve Moved!

We’re slowly getting settled here in Wichita.  The movers came Thursday morning and unloaded everything off the truck.  Then the fun began for Sam and I.  Fortunately for Steve – he goes to work during the day so he misses a big part of the unpacking!  I am making him set up the kitchen though, hehe!  He definitly needs to be involved in un-packing somewhere!

We attended a Pony Club meeting on Saturday afternoon, and Saturday evening Sam went out and rode one of the club members horses – a Haflinger mare named “Sammi”.  After they were done, Sammi was glaring at Sam.  She was so put off that someone actually made her work!  (Apparently she’d had a 3-4 week break).  We had to go out Sunday afternoon with a bag of carrots to make sure that Sammi didn’t hate Samantha!  Boy – that sure is going to get confusing – Sammi the horse and Sam the kiddo!

Sam is currently at the 9th grade and new student orientation for her new high school – The Independent School (TIS or Independent).  We went Friday night for a parent/student orientation and for an all school picnic.  One of the English teachers sat down and ate with us.  She kept looking around for some incoming freshmen, and when she spotted some, had Sam gather her stuff and took her over to introduce her to them.  Today, there is a program until 11:30 or so, then they are going to get some lunch and then go bowling.  Hopefully she’ll be feeling even more ready for the first big day – tomorrow! 

I’m off to check out a yarn shop in town – hopefully I’ll be able to get some help with my sweater!  ‘Til next time…

    I didn’t realize you had left already. We are sure going to miss you guys. Our mom’s group is just not going to be the same. Keep in touch.

      Yeah, the date came up pretty quickly – especially with County Fair going on. Everything happened SO fast! The first day of school for Sam was Wednesday. It was ‘boring’. But, they must have really loaded her down with homework yesterday. She is really struggling with adjusting to the homework and studying, etc. I know that given time she’ll make the adjustment and be just fine. It’s just difficult to watch! We’re planning on coming back to Lincoln over Labor Day weekend – not sure if everyone will be around or not, but it would be fun to get together – even if just for a little while. Blessings,

    We have a lot planned for that weekend. My sister, niece, and great niece are coming up on Saturday. then I head back to Kearney early on Sunday for a Lunch Bridal shower for my nephew and his future wife. Then back to Lincoln, to see James and his friend and bbq with my sister and family. Doesn’t seem like I have any time left to myself any more.
