The new chapter....

Here it is, 5 or so weeks since we have moved and I am just now getting to posting in the blog...
I don't have any pictures to post as of yet, because I'm lazy with taking pictures.
The move went really well. WE love where we are living! The views are indescribable! The weather is cooler than I anticipated, but that is just fine because we have 3 wood burning stoves that keeps us really warm. And I have a lumberjack hubby so that makes it even better! :)
The kids LOVE their school, and so do I. In the High School/Jr High School there is a total of 9 students including Samantha. It is amazing how much Sam loves her new school! Since we have moved here, she has come out of her little "Sammy Shell" and is friends with everyone! She is doing so great in school and loves all of the things she is doing!
In the Elementary there are a total of 10 students. 5 of them are mine, but it is really working out great! All of the kids are achieving so many things and that makes me really happy! Also, I get to help out at the school 3 days a week and that is really awesome! I LOVE IT!
I am also learning so many things about myself! I am having to learn how to cook from scratch and that is so much fun! The kids are really loving all of the homemade breads and goodies that I make. Even though El goes into Wendover 3 days a week and can get groceries it is nice to be able to learn how to improve my abilities with cooking and baking. I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving and making homemade pie crust!
It does get a bit lonely at times, but I try to keep myself busy!
I have lost 15 pounds since the move! I attribute that to not having McDonalds at my beck and call. French Fries are my total weakness!
One of the coolest things that I have seen here is, 2 Sundays ago El and I took a drive up above the property where we are living on the dirt bike and we saw wild horses! THAT was SO amazing! I wish I had my camera... It was so amazing and they were not to far from us! The stallion was trying to show us just how awesome he was/is with kicking and stomping and tossing his mane. It was truly awe inspiring!
Also, the Eagles around here are so cool! We see them everyday and I just love it! What beautiful country I live in!
