We're Home?

August 22, 2012 - Kristy MacKaben
Well, we're officially all unpacked in our new home in Lake Zurich, Illinois (about 40 minutes from downtown Chicago); however, I can't say we're exactly settled. Julie and Johnny love playing hide and seek in our new house, I'm in love with all our cabinet space in the kitchen and we finally have enough room to set up our beloved ping pong table in the basement. But, I still don't feel quite at home. I find myself reaching for the wrong drawer for silverware, the little house noises are all different and it takes a little time to get used to walking down our sidewalk to get the mail instead of reaching right out the door. It's not that I necessarily miss our little yellow house in Altoona. It just feels a little odd right now. And, I guess what I'm missing the most are familiar faces. Our next door neighbors in Altoona were amazing. Our best friends lived a few houses down on our street and my parents lived just an hour away. We're loving our new town and exploring everything the area has to offer. (The pools and swimming beaches are awesome and almost every town has a splash park.) But, memories of our life in Altoona linger. Hope all is well back "home". I will update you periodically on our adventures!
