Our new home

We've started to settle in out here in the 'burbs - we arrived on Saturday, Elijah came with my parents on Sunday, and we are still unpacking. Tonight's great accomplishment was setting up the computer for an internet-starved spouse (although I did manage to stave her off for a while with my laptop and a weak open wireless source I managed to sniff out).

I am already in love with the commute to work (or lack thereof). I can go from door to door in about 10 minutes on the motorcycle. It was about 45 minutes on a good day before, usually more like an hour or 75 minutes (or worse, if there was an accident on the freeway or something). I hardly feel like I've started before I'm there. I can't wait to get back on the other bike (the pedal one), but I think I need to heal a bit more first (for those who don't know, I had a hernia done on August 10th, just after getting home from Ontario).

Here are a few pics from the new place. We'd love it if you came to visit!

The view from the backyard, with Elijah getting in some last-minute sandbox time.

Elijah jumped in even before I was finished setting up the sandbox. He has settled in already, almost more easily than the rest of us! His comment on the sandbox was "I happy."
