We are here and official residents of Massachusetts! Not quite moved but here together as a family once again. I flew with Nicholas and Benjamin, we arrived a few days ago and have been setting up the apartment. Chris, Andrew and Lucy came in our other car packed to the brim with things we will need for the next few months. It was a long trek from them but they are HERE! Chris has made this trek twice on the last 3 months.
Acton is the little town we have decided to live in. Little relative to Sandy. Acton has approximately 22K residents —Sandy has 90K in residents. We choose this town for a few reasons; excellent public schools, somewhat affordable housing, decent commute to Boston and the town has a great feel.
We are renting a nice apartment until we can find a home in either Acton or, the much smaller adjacent town of, Boxborough.
You can reach us as this address for the next few months: 5132 Avalon Drive, Acton, MA 01720. We plan to get a PO Box next week and will get that address out soon. All of our cell phone numbers remain the same. Call or text us! We would love to here from you.
Apartment living takes us back a few years. It's nice to live in a smaller place again. Feels fresh and easy to maintain, a clean slate. We will make it homey with few belongings.
Our cute Utah house went under contact again! Yeah. The inspection and appraisal happened and supposedly went well. Check, check. The buyers will be out of their due diligent phase on Jan 20 and are set to close February 11th. Just a couple more 'checks' to happen. Nerve racking. We will move our belongs out of the home and into storage on Feb 9 & 10th. I will fly back for that weekend to oversee the moving. Our belongings will sit in storage until we find a home here. Hopefully not too long.
The boys will take placement tests this coming week to determine classes and schedules at their new schools. They will start school again on January 26. I'll also meet with a preschool and get Nicholas enrolled for the second half of the year.
Lots to do, see and get familiar with. I'll try to post to keep you all updated. Much love!
