it's been a busy week but we are very thankful for everything we've been able to do. steve has been practicing driving, begun painting our apartment, and worked on a number of other odds and ends. the girls have been adjusting. the time change wasn't too bad but gwyneth seems to have some sort of a cold. i've been busy buying appliances. it's been kind of fun and kind of overwhelming. the temptation to speak with a british accent is almost too much at times. the nicholsons are taking very good care of us and we are so glad to be here!
