Busy bees

It’s hard to believe we have been home for two weeks. It feels like it’s been so much longer. We have been busy bees since coming home to Charleston. As some of you know we sold our house at the beginning of the year and moved in with my parents. Everything worked out so perfectly with us needing to move to Boston for two months. While in Boston Sean and I were in communication with our realtor off and on, and would occasionally look at houses for sale. We found a few we liked while in Boston, but our favorites were sold by the time we got home. Sean and I decided to casually see what the market had to offer the weekend we came home. We ended up finding a house we really liked and contacted our realtor about possibly putting in an offer. The market is hot right now so we did not want to lose a house that fit our wish list. Well thankfully she talked us down and gave us a nice list of houses to look at. Sean and I narrowed her list of over twenty listings down to three and looked at them the Sunday after coming home (crazy right?). Well, our realtor listened to our wish list because she found the perfect home for us. We put an offer in that Sunday and were surprised when it was accepted on a few hours later! So we are now in the process of buying our next home. Yay!

It is also the end of the school year so we are busy with Kaitlyn and Claire finishing third grade and kindergarten. You always hear that your children will grow up fast, but you don’t realize how fast until you actually have your own. Kaitlyn had her end of year musical theatre performance of The Jungle Book where she played King Louie wonderfully, and Claire just had her kindergarten graduation where she had a solo she performed in front of everyone. These two girls are growing into such smart, talented, confident girls, and we love experiencing every minute of it.

Julia has been doing a great job adjusting to her new home. It is a lot different than our quiet little apartment in Boston. She has her entire family surrounding her, talking to her, snuggling her, singing to her, playing with her, and we wouldn’t trade it for the world. We will keep you updated as we move into our new home and on Julia’s upcoming follow up appointments. Thank you all again for your continued thoughts and prayers. We are so lucky to have you all! xoxo, Tori

 

Together at last

We are HOME! I have had that song from Annie stuck in my head. You know, the one Daddy Warbucks and Annie sing at the end.

Together at last! Together for ever.
We’re tying a knot, They never can sever!
I don’t need sunshine now, To turn my skies to blue —
I don’t need anything but you!

How many of you sung that while reading? 😊

Our family is back together and we can’t stop smiling. Lots of happy hugs and tears have been shared this weekend, and I’m sure there’s more to come. Julia is looking forward to meeting her South Carolina family!

The Big Three

Here are “The Big Three.” Dr. Borer, Rosemary, and Lauren. They have helped us through one of the scariest times of our life. The level of care we received from these three amazing individuals was far beyond anything we could have imagined. Not only are they experts in the urology field, but they are experts in patient care. You can tell they truly love their profession and their patients. Not very many people can say they look forward to future doctor visits, but we can. The Big Three are officially a part of our family. See you guys in June!

Today was our last appointment! Yes, that’s right. Julia has been an amazing patient and we have received the all clear to leave Boston tomorrow morning! Our girls think we won’t be home until Saturday, so we’re going to surprise them a day early. So if you see Kaitlyn and Claire don’t spill the beans.
