We arrived safe and sound in lovely southern California about a week ago. Which isn’t particularly notable except for the fact that we are traveling like gypsies with 6 suitcases comprising 6 months worth of belongings. It was a whirlwind first week – touring the kids new school, buying uniforms, enrolling them in school, and basically trying to figure out where everything is.
School was the easy part. Finding living accommodations was a bit harder. We were looking for a furnished space with at least 3 bedrooms with either a pool or ocean view (we are in southern California, after all) that will give us a 6 month lease. Unfortunately, there weren’t many places that fit the bill. In the end, we decided on an extended stay villa at a local resort. The place is gorgeous, with a view AND a pool! So, even if it means the kids can’t go to college, at least we will live like kings these next 5 months.
Sunset on our first night. Before the rain…..
Homework on the porch. Can’t do that in Virginia in January.
