So yeah. We made it to Seattle safe and sound last Saturday morning.
It was a great flight-the pilot must have put the plane into turbo-drive, because we were about a half hour early when we landed.
The time change messed with me from the get-go, as I was in bed by 5:30 pm Pacific time. I missed dinner and everything.
Sunday was the Princess's birthday. I can't believe how fast time has flown! It seems like just last year, she was in here.
We hit up Red Robin, Toys R Us, and Funtasia (a Chuck E Cheese type arcade without the frighteningly large animatronic mouse).
Thanks to a Venti sized Starbucks Cafe Latte with soymilk in the afternoon, I was able to stay up past 5:30 pm.
Monday (yesterday), we registered the Princess for school. Although it wasn't our first choice in schools, I believe this is the right one. It's actually closer to the house and there are only 2 teachers for each grade. Holy small school! That's cool, though. Despite the size, it's incredibly diverse. Some of the languages spoken by students are Japanese, Farsi, and Korean.
Oh yeah-filling out the paperwork, I came across an Earthquake Emergency form. What the?! Oh yeah.......this is a very earthquake prone area. Huh. Forgot about that one!
She visited her new classmates while they were in art class and they serenaded her with a song about Africa. Apparently every year the whole school studies a different continent and this year it's Africa. In the song we learned that Mt. Kilmanjaro is the 4th tallest mountain in the world and the Nile River is 4,000 miles long.
Today I'm gonna hang out with Trinity at her school for a couple hours and help her get acclimated. She seems excited and LOVED the song about Africa.
Oh yeah....we may have found a church out in Bothell ! A guy that Bruce works with, who just moved to Seattle from Florida, was raving about the church he goes to. I checked it out online and it seems right up our alley.
I'll let you know next Sunday how that goes.
I miss everyone back in Wisco and hope you don't get blown away by the gale-force winds you're experiencing!
