We're here, we're here. Sorry for the delay in posting to let you all know, but our internet's been kinda spotty at home. Plus the fact that I haven't really taken any pictures yet to share, but don't worry...I'll be getting on that.

Things are good here, falling into place. Got in on Friday morning after a pretty harrowing 26 hour trip. Unlike past trips, all our planes were right on time this go-round, so we didn't have to worry about any of that stress. Having the dog with us was a little tough, though more from a worry perspective than anything else. So a car ride, three plane rides, and a boat ride later, we made it to our new place.

Like I said, I'll have pictures in a day or two, but here are a couple first impressions:

- Having boardwalks everywhere is kinda cool. It's like walking on a deck from the house to school, the post office, etc.

- I underestimated how much the extra sunlight would mess with my head. The sun goes down at around 11:30pm and rises at shortly after 6am, so I've never really seen the place in the dark yet. It's a little unnerving, but I guess we'll be making up for it in the winter months, now won't we?

- I slept a crazy amount yesterday. We're talking a full night's sleep, then a 4 hour nap in the afternoon. Still trying to find my balance, I think. They say it takes roughly three weeks for the average person to adjust to a new routine or situation before it becomes "normal" or "habit", so I have a little ways to go. But I think we'll be juuuust fine :-)

So yeah, I'll be back as soon as I get some pictures to show you, and as long as the internet cooperates and lets me post them! Peace!
