I have new neighbors and they are all so wonderful and friendly. The day we moved in our neighbor two houses down gathered his kids together and they each provided a service. The younger ones took Isaac to his room and kept him out of the way. The Mom talked with me and made me sit down. And Dad and the older boys moved boxes from my garage all around my house. It wasn't until a week later that I discovered who my neighbor is.
His name is Derek Hegsted. He painted this

and this

Very talented man and very wonderful kind family.
It just makes my new house all the better.

speaking of house.... I'd love to show you the pictures I've been taking. But I can't find my connection cord. I'm going to have to work it some other way.

What?? Where??

So... I can't find my camera. We're in the process of packing up our apartment and it has been placed somewhere to keep it safe. So safe... I can't find it. So no pictures. No pictures of the flood from my washing machine. No pictures of my carpet all torn up and the wind tunnel hallway. (None of my stuff was ruined in the flood. I might have had a panic attack, but my calm demeanor was all that was ruined.) You wanted pictures of my Easter cookies and how they spread double in size ... nope. (I didn't make homemade.) Maybe I'll save some of them and by tonight or tomorrow after packing up the rest of my house we'll find the camera and we'll have some pics. Well, we'll see.
