Okay, so a week later I'm finally getting a chance to write about our moving experience. Looking back I just realized I didn't update any of our July activities, so those will have to come later.
Well we made it to California in one piece so to speak. The 15 hours in the car wasn't ideal, but Kassidy was much better than expected and the moving van wasn't too bad either. My sweet uncle and aunt were here to help us move our stuff in took us out to dinner afterward. Our apartment is nice and seems to be in a quiet area. We have done a little exploring in Fairfield and are quickly discovering the good and bad areas to shop. It's definitely NOT Utah though (I have a post coming that will explain what I mean) and we are missing our bubble and family.
Kassidy keeps asking to go home, which is making us feel bad for ripping her away from everything she knows and loves. I'm sure she'll adjust soon enough. In the meantime, I'm trying to distract her and help her like it here.
Kevin started school this week with orientation. He's liking it so far and is already buddies with the Dean. I think it helps that he's 1 of the 4 white males attending, 1 of the 5 out-of-state students, and 1 of the 6 married students. So he sticks out pretty well, plus he's pleasant and draws people to him.
We're adjusting and are excited for this new adventure.
Here are some pictures of our little over-priced apartment if you care to peek:
Kassidy definitely got the big room, but the other room had a balcony attached to it which we didn't really want her to have.
