Sunshine, On My Shoulders - Visiting the Site and the Beach

February 24 - We decided to take another drive down to the lot to, hopefully, get our daughter pumped about moving.  This is a tough sell because she has made friends at her current school and in the neighborhood of our rental home.  Our son is just angry because we cannot move in now although we keep showing him that there is no house to move into at the moment!

Angela actually drove to the neighborhood from the rental house for the first time.  This is a huge feat if you knew her.  We arrived at the site and found that the land was even more graded since our visit two days ago.  It was nice to see that progress was happening in our neighborhood as we will be among the first houses built there!

Nice and flat, the way I like it.

We finally talked our children into posing for a picture next to our sign.
After visiting the site, we rushed to lunch and then a stop by the grocery store for snacks.  It was good to start getting a feel for everything and Angela drove for most of the in-town travel.  Following the store, we decided to take the kids somewhere where they could stretch their legs and, as the demon creature Chuck E. Cheese says "Where a kid can be a kid."  So, we took them to a local beach on the Potomac.  It was nice to throw rocks into the water and look for "treasure".

He looks in the distance to see that the ducks are just out of range of his throw.

She is confident that she can throw a rock across the river.

She looks for treasure.  He looks for a dead oyster.  Angela takes a picture of the water.
It was good time at historic Aquia Landing.

Well, that brings us up to speed.  There will be more posts as things unfold and the building process begins.  See you soon, same Bat time, same Bat channel.
