Great weekend ...

This is the poolhouse and play area at the end of our street!
.... Just how daft am I?  Obviously, totally daft!  Why?  Well, we visited our new house at the weekend and it's absolutely super.  But did I take any pictures?  No!  I was far to busy just checking it out and mentally working out where we will put all our stuff!!

Entrance to the estate
We were able to spend about an hour walking around the place and we also got to meet our new neighbours.  The area is lovely.  It helped that the weather has been wonderful this weekend - with temperatures about 74F (see how quickly I switch to Fahrenheit).  We found the local school - within walking distance of our house!!  Kathryn was a bit surprised by its size but I'm sure that once she starts school properly, she'll be fine.  We also found out that there is a pool at the end of our street that we can use - can't wait!!!!  I did take a couple of photos of the street.

Jonathan & Kathryn at the end of the road - did I mention just how sunny it was?
After visiting our house - we headed off to Plymouth and were amazed to see so many people in all shades of green - they were celebrating St Patrick's day.  We met a nice lady who had her dog with her - also celebrating!!!

Celebrating St Patrick's Day!!!
Yesterday was relatively lazy.  We went to 12 Oaks Mall where we were able to get our new mobile phones.  As we don't have much in the way of US identification, it was a bit tougher than we had originally thought.  But we can now talk to people!

Now that Kathryn and I have adjusted to US time, we start our home schooling programme - which will continue until Kathryn starts school properly.  That's all for now.  Take care.

Shame on you for not taking pics, but it looks a lovely area. Strangely enough we have wall to wall bue skies at the moment, but not the temperature. Everywhere was frozen over first thing :o)

Oh the blue of that sky Deborah! Actually, to be fair, we have plenty of blue sky today too but with lots of puffy clouds in ours! I'm sure you'll be settled in no time - enjoy the pool!

Deborah, Everything looks great! Don't think it's just you with the identification hassles. You wouldn't believe what I had to go through to prove my son was actually mine for his drivers permit! Glad your here and enjoying yourself! All together again!!!

Oh look at that sky! And nice and warm too! Still quite chilly here, and today looks like a cloudy one. Hope you settle in quickly, and Kathryn enjoys her home schooling!

My goodness - was that dog stuffed or for real? It certainly looks very different to Wales.
