We are finally starting to settle in here. The new carpet is in and the house is well on its way to being put together. A even did some school work this week. (With all the chaos of the last few months, we are still finishing up last year's curriculum.)
My mom flew in Friday evening and apparently brought the heat with her! Seriously, it has been close to 100 degrees here in Northern Montana the last few days! It's normally in the 70s or low 80s. Ick! At least the mornings are still cool and there have been some nice breezes most days.
It's fun living the Montana life and reminds me of Alaska. We got up early Saturday morning and all piled in the car and headed to a farm about an hour away. There's a stocked pond there full of rainbow trout, and the beauty of the surrounding sweet grass hills was soul soothing.
One can soar imagine settling this land by covered wagon, the wide, windswept prairie laid out beneath the big Montana sky.
