Life in Augusta

We've been back in Augusta for about 10 days now...but it seems like much longer! Brent and I have continued to do work around the house - unpacking, organizing, hanging pictures, etc but we still have a ways to go. Brent started his second week of work today. His first week was spent sorting through benefits, paperwork, ordering equipment, computer training, and lots of meetings. He has his first urogyn clinic today so he is excited to get to work!

I have continued to do small projects around the house but haven't been too productive! Graham has given up his morning nap so most of my day is spent on Graham duty! Its a little hard to be in a new place, not knowing anywhere or anything to do with the kids. I'm a little stir-crazy to be honest! Plus, its been 100+ degrees outside so its not like we can go scout out a new playground or anything.

We've been going outside at 8 AM every morning so that we can burn off a little energy before the heat of the day!! Thanks to Aunt Ann, Avery asked me to freeze some Danonino with spoons in them to eat as here the kids are enjoying their treat!

Avery and Griffin have been loving the fact that they have a place to ride bikes now.

what a good helper!

And at the ages of 3 and 5, Avery and Griffin have been introduced to bubble bath! (I am such the slacker for never doing this before....) They love it!!


  1. We enjoyed meeting you guys at the beach! Excited to follow your new life in Georgia on here!

    -Tim and Mal

  2. Merritt- want me to send you the name of my sister's friend who lives there with young kids? Might be a great person to meet somewhere for a playdate. Thinking of y'all!!!

  3. That is so awesome! What a great, but hot life!

  4. Sounds like you guys are settling in nicely. We are making progress with our house hunting. And stir crazy is sharing a tiny 2 bedroom apartment with three kiddos...I am counting Kim as one of the kiddos! They are loving that she is home until August 15th. Hugs to your crew!
