Dear Jack: The 2nd Week Of Living In Our New House

4 years, 2 months.

Dear Jack: The 2nd Week Of Living In Our New House

Dear Jack,

This past week was very special because not only did Nonna and Papa (my parents) come back in town to help us move in, but so did Grandma (Mommy’s mother)… she flew in from Sacramento!

You helped Papa and I build a 2 person desk for our office. (I’m sitting on it now as I write this.) Something we are learning about things we bought for our house (like the Roman Shades and your bed we finished last week, as well as this desk) is that they look awesome once you work your way to the finished product…

But getting there is quite a task. That’s what happens when you buy stuff cheap from China. It’s basically the equivalent of a Lego set.

Yes, we bought a desk; in theory. But in reality, we purchased all the pieces necessary to build it completely ourselves. Over two days, it took us a total of about 4 and a half hours.

You celebrated the finished product buy karate chopping the Styrofoam packaging, then “taking a bath” in the aftermath.

We also had a lot of fun seeing you flying a kite for the first time… in our cul-de-sac.

I love it that we live in a cul-de-sac. I know this may sound weird, but I always liked the idea of living in one- and now we do.

And it was awesome being able to play in our very own backyard for the first time as well. I felt so… American.

I helped you find dirt to put in your dump truck, so that you could them “wash the animals in dirt shampoo.”

Our moving in process still continues, but it’s very rewarding to see certain rooms coming together now.

I’m really enjoying our new home and there is no doubt you are too!

We have every reason to celebrate our new home. After all, we’ve earned it. Our family has paid our dues to get where we are.

Love,

Daddy
