This blog is about the Life and Times of our Retired Navy Family.
We have been typical Navy Family, trying to make wonderful memories and meet life's challenges through moves, deployments, and making do. Now we are on to new adventures and trying to settle in one place and grow some roots. We learn new things, make new friends and make it up as we go along, hoping and praying for the best.

A New Home
You could call it luck, or Serendipity. I call it blessed. I know we are being watched over, and directed in every thing we do. We had decided to take our time getting to So Cal and visit people and see things. By Tuesday night we had a sense of urgency we hadn't felt before. We both wanted to get there in a hurry, not knowing why. We pulled into the housing office on Thursday shortly before they closed and even before we had found a hotel for the night. As it turned out, there was one house avaible that we qualifed for. The next day. Just after we got there someone else came in too. I have a feeling they were after the same house. Whatever it was, I know we are where we are meant to be, even if the road ahead will be hard.
Bug's school is right across the street and they have a great Highly Capable program here. He's starting to settle in. The neighborhood is fairly small, even if it is on a busy street. All of our neighbors seem to keep things up well and our house backs up to a park of sorts. All in all, a nice place. We look forward to getting the rest of the boxes unpacked and out of here. And Justin really wants his garage to work in. All in good time.
We already have had our first visitor. The kids are having a ball with Grandpa Joe, even if he does make them tow the line now and then. He also spoils them relentlessly.
We have a home again. It feels good. Back to real life!
