I'm just a small town girl living in a whole new world
Brookshire, tx (pronounced brooksure for those of you non Texans.) Is at own of 5000 people. How daunting does that sound? It takes about 10-15 minutes to get to a grocery store ( however H E B is comparable to Whole Foods for the poor) and 20 minutes to Target. Yet, I'm surviving! We all are surviving. After a 3 day trip; 35 hrs of which were driving, we were officially united in our new home. The boys took a few days to adjust to their new surroundings (mainly the twins and the stairs) but once the moving truck came and all their toys were here they settled into their new life and honestly, they haven't looked back. We haven't done much by way of exploring given moving depleted our funds. Hopefully, we will be able to start getting out and about more soon. We did join a musical munchkins class that the boys enjoy and the moms are very nice so at least we have met a casual friend or 2. We found a local pizza, pasta, salad buffet within walking distance complete with arcade games so the boys love it there and they also eat free until 3 so mom and dad like it too! Plus, the food is really good! We have checked out one of our local parks and we have played at Teta's neighborhood playground as well. Yurchik even swam for a few minutes in the Buchai pool! I still don't have any pictures on the walls and not everything is unpacked yet but we are happy and that's what matters. Plus, Yuri keeps reminding me we will have to pack again once we buy a house so maybe we just won't unpack everything! Lol. Well, it's late but I promised a blog and since internet is free from 12-6am I thought I'd get one written before heading to LA LA land. Love to all from Texas!
