We have been unpacking and cleaning and dreaming.  Our first week here was quite overcast and dreary and downright cold.  It helped give me the time to get the boxes all sorted and unpack what I could.  It is amazing that this house is around 4,000 square ft and there is absolutely not a singe shelf or closet poll in the house.  We have to build everything.  I did buy a jigsaw this week and hope to be adding a circular saw in the next few weeks.  I am going to be tackling closets in 3 of the 4 bedroom and then we will be building 3 sets of triple bunk beds. 

Kevin and our friend Marcelo have been working in the yard.  First order of business is to clean up all the garbage that has been accumulation on the property for the last 5 years.  They guys built a fire pit to burn all the garbage with Annalise overseeing their progress. 

We also added a little one to our household.  She belongs to friends of our and is just settling in until they join us next month.  Her name is Princesa or Princess in English.  She is about 4 months old and shares a birthday with our Abby, July 20th.  She is quite cuddly but also quite curious.
