Oh, so I guess I never came back to let you know we are here in Maryland. We are! We got in around 4:30am on Tuesday. It was such a long drive, mostly because it rained the entire time. The kids did excellent, and rarely complained. They are car riding champs. We were worried about Ava because she has been in the "HATE CAR RIDES" phase for a while, but she slept the majority of the time. When she wasn't sleeping, Jack was cracking her up.

Things are already looking up in the short time we are here. There is plenty of food to eat and the kids are getting a lot of attention from their grandparents. Ava warmed up incredibly fast to my dad and likes hanging out in his little man cave. She has also exploded in her language. Jack seems happier, he has even slept in his grandma's room every night, including the first night we were here and we stayed at a hotel because the room wasn't ready for us to sleep in. Jack, who used to freak out if I simply took a shower, had his first sleep over away from both parents and it was his idea and he did so well. I half expected him to call and want us to come get him, but nope. Amazing.

Ava is so funny, she peed in her potty last night and then ran down the hallway, I PEED, I PEED!

Anyway, so things are going well. The application period for the job Jason applied for ending a few days ago and so we are just waiting to here something on that.
