Now that we are nice and settled in San Antonio, I feel it's time for a little update on how it went down and our life here now.
Our last week consisted of packing, Sam building a fort, and time without kiddos to do the loading and cleaning. Before the kids left the place we took one last photo in front of our apartment:
We will miss the people, but not the cockroaches, stairs, or parking far away!
On loading day, we decided to split up: Sam would forge ahead with the truck (we were afraid it wouldn't be able to make the trip in one day being so slow) and I took our van with the kids. My family helped bring our other car among other great things. Turns out the truck made really decent time and they made it to San Antonio before us!
On Labor Day our new ward came to the rescue and had our truck cleaned out in 20 minutes! Without stairs and a fleet of people it went really quick. They even brought donuts and breakfast tacos. We feel very welcome in that ward so far. (Of course, making our presence known we already spoke in sacrament meeting and I'm teaching RS on Sunday).
Sam officially started his residency in July, but June was paperwork, orientations, and training galore for him. We tried to make the best of the time he had! We made it to Sea World, Natural Bridge Caverns, the Zoo (just me and the boys), the DoSeum, and the Riverwalk. Still so much to explore in this area! We're happy to be in San Antonio!
