Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

Well, we’ve already accomplished our New Year’s resolution — a new job. It took us a little farther away than we anticipated, but we’re always up for that. So we have a new home too. And we’ve finally unpacked all our furniture and belongings and books!

It’s certainly not our farthest move ever–a mere 2500 miles. As I write from my long-neglected roll-top desk, it’s a balmy 75 degrees outside. Axa has already caught a number of frogs and lizards. The beach is a half hour away. And just as a bonus, we don’t have to decipher rental contracts or public transportation systems in a foreign language.

Have you guessed it yet? How about if I add in that we’ve been cautioned against bears, coral snakes, fire ants, and alligators? Yep, that’s right: we’re living in Florida! A couple of weeks ago Tony was offered a job out here, and off we went.

Fortunately, moving on short notice is one of our areas of expertise. The children didn’t blink an eye at seven hours in a plane. In fact, they begged for more. And after a little over a week, we have a house, a car, three library cards, and everything nearly unpacked.

Home, sweet home!

    Wow! The picture of the alligator gives me goose bumps. But I like the library card part. Good work.
