Finally Caught Up!

Whew... I'm finally caught up on my blogging. So here is the current update on the Clements Clan. Right now we are living in temporary housing (paid for by Sam's work... yay!). It is a pretty nice, furnished two bedroom apartment about 5 minutes from Sam's work, so we are happy. Since we've been back in the Tri-Cities, we have celebrated 3 family birthdays (one more next week), attended one graduation, and eaten several family dinners (thanks for feeding us, fam!). Yesterday we helped my parents lay sod in their backyard. Redoing their backyard is a project my parents have been working on (along with several other large projects) for the last 4 years. Seeing green in the backyard again is quite the delight.

Along with all the family festivities, we've been incredibly busy house hunting. And it looks like all that hunting might actually pay off. We have a contract on a house. We just had the inspection and now the homebuyers are working on fixing the minor repairs that need to be done. Thankfully, the inspection did not turn up any major defects, and the inspector actually said it was a really well built, sound home. We could be closing in as soon as 2-4 weeks. Don't worry... I'll get pictures soon.

As for each of us individually, Sam is getting into the groove of us new job. It has been a lot of reading and meeting people. I have had another bout with morning sickness... not fun. But I'm now 13 weeks along, so I'm hoping it will go away once and for all! Levi has loved having tons of cousins around to play with. He doesn't love our apartment because his toys are in storage, but he loves being at either of his grandmas' houses. Most specifically, he likes to be outside at their houses. Well, now this blog is all current and up-to-date. I'll keep you posted on our home-buying adventure. Here's a couple random pictures of Levi since we've arrived in the Tri-Cities.

Hurray! Thanks for the invite. I can't wait to see pics of your new house. Where is it? Richland? Good luck the the pregnancy too. I'm SOO SORRY that you are still feeling icky. p.s. I think Levi got a hold of your phone a few weeks ago, called me, and left a long message (with nothing on it...that's how I concluded that it was Levi). It was funny.
